Kitchen Renovation, Part 2: Demolition Day

Exposing the history of an old house – the good, bad and the ugly.

The Good: The whole house was constructed with rough cut lumber and previous workmen have exclaimed how indestructible the old-growth wood is.

They also have cursed it a bit. It’s really difficult to take it apart! Also, instead of wimpy modern 2x4s, which are not actually 2″x4″, ours ARE 2″x4″. Makes a difference when you are adding modern elements like windows…

Not that great to see this lovely yellow paneling, again. It is INDESTRUCTIBLE. And impossible to drive a nail into. I will not miss it.
OOOH, And this lovely pretend-brick linoleum that was in the kitchen when we got married! Ugh!
