Kitchen Renovation: Before and After Demolition
It's amazing how little time it takes to deconstruct a room. After 8 hours, everything in the kitchen was gone, including the majority of the drywall and part of the ceiling. All that is left is the interior framing, subfloor, and pipes.
Only one small mishap. Cutting into the wall where the sink used to be yielded a nick in the water pipes. Small geyser ensued. Good thing we had a plumber handy. He made short work of that mistake.
Mr B spent the day taking the remnants of the kitchen to the dumpster on the street. He then proceeded to practically fall asleep in the hot tub. Needless to say, he slept very well last night but is sore this morning.
Today the rest of the ceiling will come down and they are moving one wall 2-3 inches, so that my refrigerator will fit properly. Not sure what else is on the agenda, but that makes it exciting.
