Day One:  February 4th.

Cabinets out, soffits down and out, oven out, dishwasher out, half-wall/bookcase down and out, sink out, garbage disposal gone, filtered water faucet and filter system gone.  Microwave poof.  Wallboard — some out.  Ceiling fan down and out.

 

Our nearly empty ktichen above – with only a refrigerator left standing all alone.

 

From opposite angle with plastic sheet/dust shield

 

Corner with some drywall out

 

Soffit removed revealing some soft ductwork

 

Kitchen sink wall – not much left

 

View from the family room – lovely black dust shield

 

Into the garage …

 

Yup .. our kitchen condensed into a few small piles.  We plan to re-use the cabinets into garage storage (summer project perhaps)

 

Piles of kitchen

Poor Pete .. our confused greyhound hardly has a place to eat

 

Day One was more productive than I guessed it would have been.  I didn’t realize the drywall would come down except for the soffit areas.  It’s cold out, in the 20′s, and it is comforting to not feel any cold air seeping through the walls.

Our first dinner … late … Max picked up Chinese for us.  We ate in the family room, washed the dishes in the laundry room sink.  It’s going to be a challenge eating like this.  We’d be better off deciding to have a bowl of cereal and fruit for dinners.

    I followed a link to this wonderful and informative blog from your post on Garden Web’s kitchen forum. I just read through all your posts from the beginning and plan on watching your remodel progress. Hopefully, it will motivate me to get rolling as I’ve been nursing a kitchen remodel for a year and a half and have stalled because two design-build firms I retained for designs did not work out (too much $$ – you can read my tales of woe on GW). Good luck! By the way, I’m in suburban Philadelphia as well!
