I haven’t chatted building here for awhile but be assured that progress is happening. We’ve turned our attention to a major project, building our new kitchen. Just imagine me beaming here 🙂
Part of the new kitchen plan is to change from a boxy room layout to an open living plan. Hence six weeks ago this wall came down
and what a filthy job it was.
Once again it was time to ‘marshall the troops’ to assist in gutting the internals
Isn’t it every lads dream to be able to saw, knock down and kick out their walls?
Always surprising at how long it takes to dismantle a room and what filth is to be found under decades old lining.
It’s astonishing at how removing just one wall has changed not only the look of the kitchen but the dynamics of our family. Our kitchen is now a gathering place, my desire for so long but not our reality, removing the wall has enabled that dream to happen.
This picture is taken from the same location as the first picture.
Simulating our new kitchen layout has enabled us to make some final decisions, answer uncertainties and highlight areas that needed adjusting. We highly recommend anyone to live with a ‘model’ if you can whilst making decisions, it’s been incredibly helpful.
Can’t wait to move onto the next step, we’re already excited with the openess and the light and it’s only going to get better.
Stay tuned more building progress reports to come 🙂
