Kitchen Demo and Plans... Part 2
Just a little reminder of where we started. Drop ceiling and not enough room to even walk around in the kitchen without walking into the island.
Cam took out the drop ceiling
Then he took out the wall. The oven moved over to the other wall and the island took the ovens spot. It is a good temporary fix until we can get cabinets.
The electrician came and and cleaned up all the wiring. We had 6 new can lights wired. Lots of switches moved around. Soon after we had the sheetrock guys come for a quote. We have had them before, and they are always great, so we said yes to the bid. They said they could come the next day!! We had a bunch of things to do... because the kitchen was as you see above. Cabinets emptied and removed, the rest of the wall down. And the real kicker was Cameron had to install the vent pipe for the oven. We were up till 4 am that night.
The sheetrock guys came. And here is the first step.
Then all the mudding got done, and Cameron primed the walls. We need to paint it the same color as the living room next (Horizon gray BM)
I seriously love it without cabinets above. We utilize the counter space so much more. We need some storage space though so we are going to try out the open shelving. If we hate it, then we figure we could always put cabinets in that location later.
We will do upper cabinets next to the oven on the opposite wall and over the refrigerator. We are also keeping the pantry and replacing the framing and doors.
It will be a few months until we get cabinets and counter tops. We are saving and waiting for a sale to come up. I'm excited about the progress so far though!
