|I was packing...it wasn't always this messy!|
Several of our very good friends (Matt, Mark and Jared) agreed to help with the demo. I truely thought we (and I mean them) would be working all day. The actual demo only took 4 1/2 hrs. It was unloading the packed uhaul, which we used as a garbage truck, and clean up that took a much longer time.

We are using a guy that works for the company that did our basement. He comes over in the evenings and works. As of now the new pantry is framed and the sliding door is on. He took down the post (not a load bearing wall). Which has made a huge difference.
