When they were using a jackhammer to break up part of our basement floor a couple of weeks ago, they started early during the day, right when we were having breakfast. It didn't take long for the breakfast table to clear out since the jackhammer was operating directly underneath it. In the interludes between percussion from the basement you can hear the normal sounds of carpenters working just on the other side of the plastic wall. Enjoy the peaceful sounds of breakfast at our house.
