Start of week two and we have our first mis-communication with the supervisor.  Thought the schedule only called for the cutting of the two new doorways on the first floor and the beginning of the demo on the second floor of the apartment, but came home to find the hardwood floor in the new first floor bathroom completely ripped out.  I knew the construction plan had the word "tile" on the drawing, but the demo plan didn't say anything about ripping out the perfectly good hardwood (which we had planned on using). 

The new doorways to the back porch and the apartment were cut as planned and the brick dust is everywhere.  Hard to imagine it ever getting completely cleaned up.  

The only other demo was the old kitchen on the second floor with all the right cabinets being removed.  It also appears some of the plumbing was disconnected as the apartment kitchen no longer has water.
