The Making of The Wallagio 2.0: Week 6

That’s right, I’ve gone to weekly updates instead of quasi-daily updates.  For the most part, the day-to-day changes have become more glacial in extent.  Also, I’ve become bored with the updates process and a little frustrated that we’re in week six and there’s no end in site.

Such is remodeling.


New floor is mostly down in both living rooms.


Cabinets installed and stocked in new kitchen.






Granite and cooktop installed.


New microwave.


New sink.
