Kitchen 101

Today we started the kitchen makeover. Last week we got new appliances, and this week began this demolition. We...or I should say Travis started with the upper cabinets on the refrigerator side. We...again, everything down in about 2 1/2 hours. We are wanting to tear out the little soffit on the top near the ceiling in order to make room for more cabinets for our little kitchen, but Travis thinks that the soffit is made of dry wall, so we must call in reinforcements....We're going to try to persuade his dad to come down in the near future to help out.
It has begun!

The "old" kitchen before
The first hit of demo

After 2.5 hours all the upper cabinets on the West side of the kitchen are gone.
Gone is a figurative term...they are in the garage in pieces waiting for the spring clean up day when we can load our curbside with garbage and watch all the trash diggers come by go through looking for things they may want.

Before and After
