After many years of saving we finally have amassed enough to finance a nice redo to our condo’s kitchen. There will also be new flooring installed through most of the rest of the place but the kitchen is the focus. Today, promptly at 8:00, the contractor arrived and began the demolition phase. With a minimum of commentary, here are a few photos of what transpired this first day….
Two big guys and a Sawzall tear into the base cabinets. Yes, the dishwasher was saved for reuse!
The ceiling comes down pretty easily.
The ceiling was hiding a nasty surprise — the original builder hacked a big hole in a joist to accommodate an electrical conduit. Our guys fixed it.
Hmmm… the plans say to move the drain eight inches to the right.
Old shop lights gone, new recessed lighting goes in. It will be a bright workspace!
At the end of the day, new lights in place, new power cables pulled, ready for a new ceiling!
