I started taking down the wall paper in the dining room. My Mom came over and helped and by 4pm we had almost all the wallpaper in the dining room done.

Aaron, my Dad and my brother worked on taking out the door frame from the dining room and started to prep the space for drywall.

Saturday the 15th, 4pm
End of the day,
Aaron and my Dad cap off the electrical that was in the wall,
Aaron made a list of what we needed to buy at Home Depot on Sunday and we did a little clean up. It was a long day in the heat and humidity.
