Building Equity...

The kitchen remodeling has begun. I think it is going surprisingly well. Not having a kitchen is a great excuse to invite yourself over for dinner to friends' and families'.

Where there was once a pointless wet bar... there is not. So to take its place...Not an island, but a peninsula :)

B said there was a flurry of activity as the workers begun to demo. The major changes involve the bar and wall removal here. Also, the hideous fluorescent light fixture that was browned from age has been replace with 7 "cans" as they say in the bizz...also known as recessed lighting:)

We also took out the walk-in pantry to make the kitchen bigger against the advice of our realtor. We'll see I guess.
No more pantry.

We had been in Austin for all the business and when we got back it looked like the above. AM keeps say "Where'd the kitchen go?"
We had to wait to measure with all the walls removed before we could order the cabinets and counter tops. We are now in the 3-4 week wait for them to come in and get installed. In the meantime, thank God for microwaves, toaster ovens and grillin'.

Just curious, but without a pantry, where will you put food? One of the cabinets or are you adding something new?
