So the day after Christmas, after we hosted a three-course dinner, "the last supper" in our old kitchen, we began demo, and man did it feel great. Here I am trying to pull out this door trim and molding (great shot :))
The next day I had to return to work, but my husband and two of his close friends from the CT Guard, volunteered their time and completed the rest of demo. Amazing!
We are now on DAY 4 of construction. The subfloor has been put in and my husband is at the house talking to our contractor about taking down the wall that separates the kitchen from the laundry area. You can see part of the wall in the picture of above. On the other side of that wall is a door that leads outside to our deck. Mike would like this wall taken out and a sliding door to the deck put in. Great idea, let's more daylight in to the space, opens the kitchen up even more and it does not affect my kitchen design in terms of cabinets or countertops. Just drives up the overall budget costs up a bit, but I think it will look good.
Today is my 31st birthday (Happy Birthday to me) and we're off to the MGM Foxwoods casino for the night, but construction continues on tomorrow. Can't wait to see where we're at when I get back.
