Kitchen Demolition

Home Remodel Time

Before I show you the final outcome of our front yard, I have to go through the process of showing you our kitchen remodel because part of the kitchen remodel involves the exterior of the front side of the house. So once I’m done showing you the kitchen remodel, I will pretty much be able to give you a final tour of the entire house fully remodeled. I’m very excited about it!

So on to Kitchen Demolition Day 1!

On Kitchen Demo Day 1, we got rid of the pantry.

Here’s the pantry before:

This is the view from the kitchen. The pantry is on the left through that doorway:

Here’s our kitchen before, looking at it from the dining room:

And a different scope from farther back:

We had to take all that junk out of the pantry.

Now here’s a look at the pantry from the exterior:

The pantry is the whole random add-on on the left. And the fridge spot is that extra add-on that sticks out even further:

Here’s the view of the pantry from the right front of the house:

Now here’s the plan:

We wanted to take out the awkward horrible ugly, leaking pantry and fridge spot and extend the kitchen into the pantry area, but making the walls of the new kitchen in line with the rest of the house. Then extend the roof of the house over that new end of kitchen.

In order to do that we literally had to break down some walls, roofing, and flooring. So we got right to work:

This looks safe, doesn’t it? I promise that it actually was though. You’d be surprised how hard it was to take something down even when it looked like just touching it would make it fall… it wouldn’t.

We put up a temporary door in the doorway between the pantry and the kitchen to block as much debris and dust from going into the house as possible:

And there were at least 3 different floor styles in there:

Eventually we were done ripping it all down and all of this:

Used to be here:

And here:

Now all I feel like saying is “WE ARE MASTERS OF OUR OWN UNIVERSE” lol…

For those of you wondering, yes, it really did only take us one day to do that. It was hard work. Not to mention it was July, so it was hot out (luckily not one of the hottest days, but still hot nonetheless).

I have to say I am still very proud of us for doing all this crazy stuff. But you ain’t seen nothin’ yet because we have even more. First we build the frame of that new side of the kitchen. Kyle mainly does this on his own with my assistance here and there when needed. Then we demolish the rest of the kitchen and rebuild! I can’t wait to show you all everything 🙂

      Thanks JoAnn! Yeah I know it’s much easier to just put linoleum on top of linoleum over and over, but eventually you’ll be up to the ceiling, lol 😉
