Kitchen Reno Day Three



A few more pieces of the plywood came off the floor.
The base cabinets came out, along with the dishwasher and sink.
No more water!  Ack!

Plans were finalized to reconfigure the island and
some new electrical lines were added into the wall.
Look in the corner...the first new cabinet!

Doing dishes in the bathtub tonight. ha.

    1. haha...well, maybe the bathroom sink. Although, we're using as much paper and plastic as possible as of today. He said I'd have my new sink and water back on as of Friday, so I can deal with that!

  2. Life is a never ending adventure, isn't it?
    I once washed clothes in my bathtub and then, after wringing out all the water I could, ran with them, dripping, to the door so I could hang them outside. Good thing we lived in New Mexico back them. They dried quick.

    2. Well, you could take the dirty clothes down to the river and bash them on the rocks like the old Cherokee Indian women did in days gone by.
      Just suggesting. . . . .:)

  4. Oh the joys of a kitchen remodel! We did one 10-11 years ago at our other house and I did the dishes in the laundry sink for about a month or more. Felt like forever! But it was totally worth all the 'pain'! We had plans drawn up to redo this one this Summer, but now we've decided to move instead. :) Yay!!

  9. When you wash the pots and pans in the bathtub, is it before you put the boys in, or afterwards? Or do you do them all together? Ha!

    1. Once all the nitty gritty stuff is done, I think the progress will really speed up. That darn floor issue really slowed everything down!

  13. You're doing good! Nice to see something go in, and not just tearing things out. :)
    We redid a kitchen when Laura was 9 months. Bob did all the work, so it took a while. She was walking and into everything, which was stored in boxes in the dining room. And yes - I did lots of dishes in the bathtub!

    Three men in a tub
    Oh wait, they won't fit
    With the dishes and grit

    So push them aside
    But make sure they're towel dried
    'Cause three dripping men
    Would be less than Zen!

    1. Spaghetti between your toes
      would certainly cause some woes!
      Asparagus in your hair
      of which you are aware
      would not be a treat!
      It would not be neat!
      Soggy bread crumbs galore
      add to family stories and more.
      Bring back my dishwasher by Friday at noon
      or with all this mess, I just might swoon!

    1. Hopefully only another day without the sink. Washing dishes in the tub just once was enough for me!

  18. I can't imagine how difficult this whole thing for all of you. It's kind of like you went back in time to the days before modern appliances, except with construction thrown in on top of that. Though it sounds like the work is going relatively quickly and you won't be without your sink too long. And it's great that the boys seem to like this adventure, too.
