Demolition!

 

At last. Some progress to report on kitchen works. A crowbar ripping out that old cupboard partition marks the start of something I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time.

 
 
 

 

It may only be a small cupboard, but look at the difference its absence makes to the proportions of the room.

The pantry (behind the fridge) was demolished too.

 

The kitchen units, apart from the sink, have been removed and scrapped. They were rotting at the base from the water pipe leak. A temporary kitchen has been bolted together in the hall and the fridge now resides in the dining room. It’s far from ideal but signifies progress and that is good enough for me.

But perhaps the most remarkable difference comes from the light. Those cork tiles were not easy to get off. But boy, was it worth it. Even if it has just revealed another job. Now I’ve got wallpaper to strip as well!
