So the kitchen is just about done enough to take pictures of. It’s been a while since the last update here, so I’m not going to wait any longer.
And this is what an entire kitchen full of Ikea cabinets looks like in boxes before it’s assembled:
Next up, the dining room (which is also almost finished). The contractor’s demolition folks should be coming by within a few business days to tear up the front foyer and staircase to start the mega-project of completely rebuilding that as well as the front door and stoop. The upstairs kitchen is also already demolished down to the studs and subfloor in preparation for the project to turn it into the new master bedroom, but that’s a topic for another post!
