    Kitchen Remodel - Finished enough for pictures

    Today was the first day of real work on the kitchen remodel that has been in the planning stages for.....years.

    All the cabinets have been removed and taken away. I put an ad on Craig's list for the cabinets, free for anyone who wanted them with the stipulation that they could not pick through the pile, they had to take them all. Well, I got 7 responses in the first half hour! The first guy, who responded in 20 min, not only took the cabinets, he took the counter top, sink and faucet. AND, he brought help over and helped me take them all out!

    Here are the first of what will likely be many pictures chronicling the adventure.

    Nothing quite as satisfying as the demolition!

    Quite a bonus on getting rid of the old cabs. Our old ones were particle board and practically falling apart. They ended up in the Dump...

    No, sorry. Jan's last kitchen remodel (previous marraige) lasted 18 months. If Brent were to help.... well... let's just say I have considerably fewer months than 18 to finish.

    I see the stove and reefer stayed, so at least you won't be eating out, or out of the microwave the whole time you're working.

    The stove will stay only a few days, then it, the DW and the fridge will all move into the dining area. Only the fridge will stay serviceable. We'll be doing a lot of cooking on the grill.

    Its not like I don't deserve it!

    We did actually finish the kitchen remodel we did in pretty short time.

    It was a very satisfying project. Even all the way to the tile floors. Something nice about redoing a kitchen.

    We did have to eat out of the microwave for about a week or two.
