Renovation: And so it begins

After months of planning, our renovation began today. Last night we finished moving the last of the kitchen/dining room stuff out.

Here are the "before" pictures, pop-up style.

Kitchen side

Dining Room side

This peninsula of cabinets shown in these first two pictures creates a pass-through bar between the two rooms. It's outta here. The floor cabinets and countertop are going into the basement to replace a couple of old card tables that we've used forever for folding laundry. You'll notice the square holes in the soffet, those were cut by the contractors to see what was inside the wall before finalizing plans to remove it.

Kitchen from the pantry

Here's a shot down the length of the kitchen from the pantry. The fridge will be moved so that it'll be directly to your right from where this picture is taken.


In most houses with our floor plan, this room is a big ass pantry. The previous owner did this to the doorway and put a small built-in table and benches for a nook for his kids to eat. They had three sets of twins, so they needed the space. We converted it back into an open pantry as shown here.

The plan is to completely open it up so that there's no "doorway" left. The new cabinets will extend into the space and around the back wall, creating a butler's pantry. Lots of countertop space for things like the food processor and bread machine too. The fridge will be sitting to the left of the opening, with a new cabinet next to it.

I took more pictures this evening of the first day's progress. I'll post 'em tomorrow night.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However think about if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Excellent blog!

I would like you had been correct concerning the admin getting place within an uncomfortable position! Unfortunately, as we see day in and day out, the press willingly accepts the incomprehensible gibberish that passes for an explanation by these fools instead of being laughed from the national stage, because they should really be. It certainly is pathetic...

The word that came to my intellect was "Why?"
