We are officially under way on our kitchen renovation. This past Friday/Saturday was demolition day at the house. In a few hours everything was out of the Kitchen. It was so satisfying to get rid of all the old chipboard cabinets and countertops. Over the years the mice had made this kitchen their home. There was evidence of them everywhere – we were always wondering what the “smell” was in the kitchen.

We decided to remove the cabinets in tact in case someone else wanted them – one person’s trash is another’s treasure (hmm). And sure enough as we were about to throw them in the dumpster a local stopped by asking if he could take them. He took most of them for re-use, along with the old stainless sink!

There is no turning back now – a couple of months of construction and inconvenience will be so worth it.
