I was told that my house was built somewhere around 1855. I have lived in this house for 24 years. I have put up with the outdated and scary kitchen for that long as well! My husband has been updating things on this house for a long time, but never the kitchen due to the expense and labor it will take to do it. He is a one man team! Finally, I have had enough, and I told him I am moving out. You can come with me, but I am tired of living in this house the way it is. He decided we needed to re-do the kitchen in order to sell the place. It would also be more likely that we would stay here if he re-did the kitchen!
SO, we are FINALLY getting a new kitchen and dining room!
I started looking for a new home recently. But honestly, at this age, it would make more sense to stay in a home that is almost paid off. GOOD ARGUMENT hubby! I had to give him credit for that tid - bit of knowledge. It got me thinking that maybe he was right. SHHHH! Don't tell him I said that! Plus, trying to find a house with a kitchen I liked was proving difficult! So I am waiting to see what this place is going to look like once it is done!
This is when we had everything pushed to the center of the kitchen prior/during the start of demolition. I didn't even bother with dishes, we just started ripping stuff out. This was the early part of Nov. 2018.
To explain how bad I wanted this done, I did not have any plans, contractors, or any other thing in line to do this project, and that included money for the project. My husband told me that I had jumped the gun on this one. I told him that I had not, I was just being proactive!
Up next I will be posting video and pictures of the demo project in all of its messy glory. Other installments to come showing the progression of this whole project. Enjoy.
This house was built in the mid 1800s. So the next demolition pictures are of the fun associated with tearing down a plaster and lathe ceiling.
