Demolition Man

The kitchen remodel has begun....or should I say the prep work for the remodel has begun

Things have got a bit busy around here. Work, renovating. More's all been taking up too much of my time so I've been VERY neglectful as far as being here on the blog is concerned

Anyway...we have some progress. Nothing pretty, just basic stuff

We've gone from this...

To this...

MONT removed the bulkhead, the cornice, (crown moulding) plaster and skirting boards so the wall can be extended and the cupboards removed.

The plaster panel was removed, exposing the back of the old robe in the second bedroom

That white section with the timber around it over on the right, is the back of the built in robe in the second bedroom. That little robe is just 450 deep...or about 18 inches...Not great if you have rather large coats you want to hang. So the robe is being removed and the that' little bit of floor space is going to become part of the kitchen.

Yes it's only 450 wide, but it'll make all the difference in the kitchen design...and you know what it's like with old just have to work with what you have.

The small pantry (on the right) will be removed and the sink and dishwasher will be relocated there.
The fridge will stay on that wall, but will be moved slightly so it won't be centred.

So that's what's been happening here this past couple of weeks. We've also been busy in the second bedroom...removing cornice and getting it ready for the new built in robes to be installed, which should be next week. Fingers crossed
