Day 1 #kitchenrenovation

Welp, after MUCH anticipation and many, many months of preparation...D-Day has FINALLY come!  As I was leaving for work this morning the truck that was delivering the dumpster had it's engine purring ready to park it on our driveway for the next gosh-knows-how-many-weeks.  Jim met Mike (our general contractor) and was able to witness the start of the kitchen demolition (so jealous!!!).  As you can WELL imagine I was sooo anxious to get home to see what had been done....

Enough with the I'm sure you're all on pins and needles waiting (ha!) Here is what we have on Day 1.

Looking into the kitchen from the "hallway"

Looking towards the "hallway".  You can see the chimney.

Close up of the chimney...White brick???  Say what???  I'm pysched...Jim's crushed it's not red brick...white paint here we come!!!

Jim's clearly excited about the demo phase!

Towards the backyard...where the sink used to be.  Notice the wall of tiles on top of the wall of plaster.  These tiles were hiding BEHIND the cabinets.  #helloextraspace

Looking towards Lady Land. 

Hole in the chimney was where the microwave was vented to.  The mason is going to reface this.

Pantry just started seeing some demo action.

One more shot for good measure

Looking into that crazy shaped/useless closet

Until tomorrow.....


  1. They did a lot in one day! Love all the pictures

  2. Wow! I'm amazed that was just Day 1.

  3. Nice job Erin! Wow, that was fast! I'm so excited for you guys! I think you need some better action shots of Jim in there - he looks like a deer in the headlights, haha.
