All the ripped off paneling can't just be thrown out on the deck.
Here is the back of the large ugly pantry.
Now the paneling is removed and Kevin is unhooking the electric boxes and switches. Most of it gone.
See, how cool! I love him.
This turkey decided to hang out on the frame to our shade tent.
We had a foot of snow and -11 degree temperatures but nothing fazes our big hairy monster of a dog. She laid there for a while (quite a while) and the snow doesn't even melt.
(Back to the kitchen.) Now the pantry is all gone and here is the beam in place.
Now we have all this room to move around, heaven!
The island will go where the old ugly tile is. I guess we are going to build one. I found a really cool one on Craig's List but it was a little too pricey so we will go with the homemade one.
Kinda something like this.
This is my inspiration for the kitchen. Kevin is going to make new cupboards for the upper shelves and we are going to reface the lowers. I want some open ones like in the picture for dishes and he's going to make some with solid doors and maybe some glass doors too.
They look so nice on the cupboards in the other picture.
Actually, it doesn't really matter how nice they look in the inspiration kitchen because there is no way I could use them after hating them all this time. How dumb is the placement of the handles anyway, right in the middle of the door, what were they thinking.
More to come,
