Rolling Along

We spent most of the weekend deconstructing the kitchen. I say deconstructing, because this isn’t the fun and exciting Demo Day see on my favorite HGTV shows. Nope, this was slow and methodical (mostly because of the hubbinator) so we could find out what was behind the wall.

Despite the fact that the cabinets were crumbling, they were a pain to remove and actually came out in one piece.

The peninsula has hidden surprises underneath the cabinets. Like blocks of wood the cabinets were attached to.

We did need several trips to Lowes and HomeDepot. Yes, we picked up a new blade and surprise, we didn’t actually need a blade to cut it out of the packaging. Score!

We even picked up 2 new ladders. Our old one looks like it might had survived nuclear testing in the 1950s.

When all is said and done. We will have someone come out on Saturday to begin work on removing what he wants of the soffit, then comes the reworking of the electricity, HVAC vents, and drain relocation and hood vent relocation to accommodate the higher ceiling and new kitchen layout. The sink and dishwasher will be removed and replaced with a utility sink.

We bought 2 rolling carts to have counter space and to move stuff quickly out of the way while others work in the kitchen. I had originally purchased 2 of the small carts that hold the microwave, then I found the work bench above. And well, that works much better, plus we will use it for holiday buffets after the remodel is finished.

Now, I have to go back to work and am, quite frankly, looking for a break.

Until next time.
