Kitchen Update

Here are two days of kitchen updates.

On Thursday, Don brought in some of the cabinets from the garage and had the electrician in to do the electrical stuff. Don and the electrician put up the cabinets above the stove. Some new wiring had to be done for microwave.
Don also put up the drywall to cover the whole where he took down the soffit and extended the other soffit where more cabinets will be hung. On Friday, the plaster guy started covering the new drywall and did some repair work over the sink.
The door on the left leads to the basement. Don added the new cabinets and the fridge wrap around. Here's a good shot of where the door frame was taken off the pantry to make a mudroom.

Till next time......happy stitching

Kitchen Remodeling

I'm having my kitchen remodeled. The contractor has been at it for two days. I'm taking pictures everyday and I hope to blog every few days, too. Let's start with a tour of the old kitchen.

1. Here's a view standing at the counter in
picture 7.
2. Here's the view standing in the dining room.
3. Here's the view standing near the sliding door in picture 1. 4. At the end of picture 4, there's a landing with 3 doors, one to the garage, a half bath on the left and this pantry/broom closet on the right.
5. Standing on the landing in step 4 is this view,
where you can see the side of the fridge.
     6. This is the fridge.
7. Standing next to the fridge you see the
counter where I stood to take picture 1.
We emptied the kitchen to get ready for Don, our contractor.

We emptied the back pantry/broom closet. When I went to work yesterday, the kitchen looked like this.

When I got home from work, it looked like this.
Today I came home to find the soffet gone... and the wall in front of the pantry/broom closet has been removed to make way for a tiny mudroom.

Till next time......Happy Stitching
