Kitchen Tear Out Starts

Today began the tear out of the kitchen in preparation for the addition.

We planned on saving some of the cabinets for use in a future laundry room or pantry. Below is a picture of the original kitchen in all it's glory. Of course, this is during frantically moving everything out of the cupboards in preparation. Please excuse our mess.

We removed the stove and started our cabinet removal in the lower corner. Many layers of old wall paper were uncovered as well and some original wainscoting.

Along the way we discovered a door to the attic above the kitchen, a place not seen for many years. Our curiosity got the best of us, we had to take a peek. Unfortunately there were no long forgotten treasure chests.

 After we had to return to work the progress was a little slower but we eventually got the kitchen sink out and explored what was in the old walls a little more.

All that's left now is to relocate the washer and dryer to the basement and work on taking out any other items we might want to save.
