Bedroom and Kitchen Remodeling Adventure
"Before Pictures" of the Kitchen and Bedroom which are first on the plan to be renovated and remodeled.
Our old galley kitchen.
Broom closet and storage between the bedroom door and the fridge.
View from back door.
Closeup of cabinets and drawers under the stove top.
Tiny closet, upper cubbards and side of cubbards by the door, decorated with the nursery motif of Raggedy Anne and Andy, and Mrs. Puddleduck. (Room was a nursery in 1982!)
Last look of the door which will be no more, and the stunning new shades just bought.
The demo begins with the tearing out of the closet and cubbards in Katharine's little room next to the kitchen.
The closet and cubbards were demolished.
Repairing the wall and ceiling where the cubbards attached.
Turning a door frame into part of the wall.
Scraping wallpaper is a tough job, especially when it was originally put up on the wall by the experienced Carl and Peggy Miesse in 1982, in honor of their new granddaughter, Katharine.
After a lot of work, Mrs. Puddle duck and her friends are gone! Painting!
Removing the cubbards, sink, ceiling panels and wall oven
A 23 year old apprentice who is very talented.
Right side also taken out.
The wall oven and cubbards are the last to go.
There I am, amazed what can be done with just a hammer!
The remains of our old kitchen, which they hauled away.
All the white tiles which were falling down were taken off. the surprise was the brown sticky paper underneath.
Brown paper still needs to be scraped.
OPENING UP THE DOORWAY AND WALL......
What is behind this mysterious plastic sheet?
A new entry way into the kitchen from the dining room!
A new pass-through rectangular opening, which overlooks our living room was also cut before they left on Saturday.
While we are experiencing house camping and washing some dishes in the bath tub, it is truly thrilling to see our house being renovated and remodeled before our eyes!
