DEMO DAY! 2 PROJECTS

Belle Meade & Franklin Pike, TN

Demo week! Demolition has started on both projects: Belle Meade Project #2 and Tammy Wynette Estate ; which basically just means there is a big mess everywhere. We closed on the Belle Meade project #2 three weeks before the large estate, so this allowed the demo crew to stagger their work. I start demo by walking Jose, the demo contractor through the job, and basically just telling him what we want to go. However, it is super important when doing any demo to go to the site everyday, because contractors tend to be quite destructive with sledge hammer, and walls or features you want saved will go in a second.

The main areas that get demoed on both of these projects is the kitchen and bathrooms. At this point, I have already involved the Cabinetmaker for general layout of the bathroom and kitchen, so this helps to determine what the shell of each of the rooms should look like. Also, making sure that you have your rough valves for showers and in-wall plumbing fixtures (see previous post on selecting plumbing fixtures) is important at this stage, so that the plumber can start roughing-in when demo is completed.

So, we are off to an ambitious start for these projects, and now the next step will be confirming the construction schedule and getting the rough trades in. Exciting times!
