We had a bunch of friends come bright and early on New Years day to begin our demolition:
We started out by ripping out the kitchen cupboards, and they came down surprisingly fast. We ripped up the floors, and again lucked out in how fast they came out!
Next, we started to strip the drywall off the load bearing wall in preparation for installing our new beam:
The walls surrounding our existing pantry aren't load bearing, so we took them out completely:
After a lot of dust, and a full dumpster, we're ready to start rebuilding:
I didn't think we'd get this far in a single day, so tomorrow will be a scramble to try and bump up some deliveries so we can keep moving!
