James and BC (friend extraordinaire) spent time hammering nails out of the original, floor planks so that we can reuse the wood in other areas of the building. Our goal is to reuse as much as we can!
|This pic was taken upstairs in the area that will be removed in order to open up |
the space and make the area a double high gallery!
|You can see the piles of tiles in the background and all of the cement attached to it.|
I endured quite a muscular workout, using that chisel and hammer, but every single tile will make the effort worthwhile!

I have to admit that having a job and purpose really is helping me to sleep better. I was never scared that this project wouldn't succeed. I just experienced some anxiousness for the day to finally get here when we could get back to work on the building and the programming for the space. I'm incredibly grateful that the day is finally here! Now, back to work (fun)!!!!
