If the kitchen is the heart of the home,
my kitchen is desperately in need of CPR.
Our kitchen is needs work - no two ways about it.
Sadly, things often have to get worse before they get better.
Here's how it looked before we moved in.
My husband is tearing out this section of the room.
It's kind of like getting a bad tooth pulled - you know you'll feel better when it's done,
but it stinks while you're going through it.
Our plan is to take out the window, which is very small,
and replace it with 2 windows that will
form a corner window, to open
up the view outdoors and bring more light into the room.
These old pine cabinets are being removed.
And then there's the walls.
There were 2 layers of wallboard he needed to tear out.
Well, now we are down to the studs and insulation.
And then there's the floor. There are 3 layers of linoleum sandwiched between 3 layers of wood underlay.
Stay tuned for the next update!
