Kitchen Demo is DONE!

It's official... demolition of the kitchen is done!

Yay!  Now, maybe we can live a while without an inch of demo dust everywhere, wink.

Here's what we've been up to the past couple of days...

When you walked from the mudroom into the kitchen there was a slight step up; about a one inch difference in flooring.

When we removed the walls between the mudroom and kitchen we were left with uneven concrete.  This had to be fixed since the difference would now be in part of the kitchen and I know that my feet would find that difference every time I was in there, if you know what I mean, wink.

A couple of nights ago we prepped the area by vacuuming, mopping and applying an adhesive on it.  We left it dry overnight and the following morning we began to mix and pour the concrete.

We left it dry overnight.  Thankfully, the animals stayed off it, ha!

It is still curing today but we can walk on it in most places.

Today CountryBoy tackled the last bit of demo.

In our efforts to make a very small kitchen have a larger feel we decided to open it up some more.

If you'll remember, we already enlarged the doorway...

Next, we wanted to open up this wall a bit...

Ah, much better!

It's going to be nice to be able to see what's going on in other parts of the house while in the kitchen.

The last of the demo was a simple one; removing some wood supports for the old cabinets...

All gone.

Now, the fun begins; putting it all back together, yay!

We've got a plan... let's cross our fingers that we can get what's in our heads into reality.

Oh, and for those of you that loved the range?  I've got good news... after doing some research on it we have come to the conclusion that it might be worth the effort to try and reclaim it.  It's going to take lots of research, elbow grease and finding parts but we're hoping it will be worth it in the end.

Thanks for stopping by!

This summer when you are sitting on your new porch looking out into that valley all these little challengs will be forgotten. Praying all goes well for you this week.
