Well it's our official first day of construction on the new kitchen. We spent the day moving out the old gas range & the refrigerator and then we sealed up the room for tomorrows demolition...Yeah! We get to take a sledgehammer to the old cabinets. Fun starts tomorrow! We do still have to run a corridor of plastic sheathing out to the front door, and add a zipper entrance at the kitchen, but we're going to wait for the electrician who's also starting tomorrow. He needs to move that breaker panel and we don't want to make his access too inconvenient. Sure hope I can keep up with the pro's tomorrow.

Out with the old, in with the new! Finally, we have our permit and the dumpster was delivered today, so demolition of the old kitchen will start next week. It's been a busy few days getting materials ordered and of course I'm still trying to get furniture & stuff moved away from the walls for the whole house rewiring. It's amazing how many little details need to be coordinated, making sure materials will arrive when needed, but also not having too many things taking up room inside when we need to knock out walls and move debris out of the house. It's going to be a crazy month. Hope to post lots of pictures along the way.
