We rip up linoleum and steam it off the floor on our hands and knees.
This is a disgusting job and moving cabinets reveal horrible walls with old laminate adhered to the wall! Who in their right mind would put the sink in the middle of this tiny kitchen, I have no idea!
We started stripping the floor to expose the wood flooring and decided to go a little further and move the refrigerator, and move the sink to the wall where we want it. The intention is to see if we like this configuration that Kirk and Jared thought up taking into consideration the "work triangle".
I will never for get my 19 year old son talking about work triangles.
I was very impressed that he knew what that was and that he was figuring out our kitchen based on a work triangle.
Now he's almost 22 and knows everything....whew!
Cats and holes in the walls don't mix.
I caught Lightning by his back legs as he was diving through the hole in the wall.
Kaleb blocked it with a piece of paper. I don't think they can read
but at least we don't have a cat in the wall.
We were very relieved to see that the floor was intact under the sink. Only holes to patch...which Jared did nicely.
That is some real vintage dust under that cabinet.
Look at this beautiful, mix matched kitchen.
The counter tops are a crazy match with silicon sealant between the tops to keep water from spilling through the cracks. I got tears in my eyes, no kidding, to have that stupid sink out of the center of the kitchen. There is so much more room it is unbelievable!!!!
We still have green marbled formica counters with a white piece in the corner.
We have pieces of wood nailed between the cabinets so the cats don't get in there.
We have OSB for flooring over by the slider.
Pieces of the laminate on the side of the cabinets get caught on your clothes, ripping it off....and we don't care.
We have down sized one top cabinet and one lower cabinet in the teeny kitchen.
We have half our kitchen supplies and food in the basement.
We have holes in the plaster, old exposed wallpaper and red laminate that needs to be removed from the wall.
I love our new configuration.
We are one step closer to getting the kitchen remodeled.
