Demo days in the summer heat.
Although there are no sheep to be found on our farm, the kitchen looks more like a barn where sheep are being sheared. But before you see that picture, let me back up and show you how the kitchen demo is progressing. Here is the old kitchen with the lower cabinets, sink, and dishwasher all gone.
This area was temporarily made into our stairway to the basement, but this will all change and become part of the kitchen.
Here is the opposite side of this same wall again after demo. Now you can see the half wall that was built to protect people from falling into the basement directly behind the red ladder.
Notice the white ceiling they are tearing down. This was originally the outside porch ceiling. It’s snowing lamb’s wool . . .
Another big step was putting in two huge beams that would hold the weight of the second story and allow us to open up the space between the living room and kitchen. Here are the guys putting in the first beam.
I forgot to mention that our contractor Steve, first built a temporary wall to hold the weight of the second story. You can see it right behind the large beam the guys are holding up.
|Thanks guys for all your hard work!|
