So, if you don’t follow us on YouTube you might have missed all the construction updates on our house. If you would like to catch up, you can go to the Construction Update Playlist. In those videos, I share all the goofs, mishaps, mistakes and problems we encountered along the way. Here are some photos to show you where we started and how far we have come.
This was the kitchen before as is, it was a mess when I took these photos because we were in the middle of moving out.
This was during the demo of the kitchen, after the tile floor was removed.
The soffits were coming down, so they had to rip them out. We found a surprise under them.
That pipe near the window was our surprise. At first they thought it was a waste line from the upstairs bathroom that could not be moved, but they found out it was not, and we were able to move it!
Some new electric lines were installed and then they started putting the new insulation in. The recessed lighting also was moved.
Next, the sheet rock was put up and spackled.
Then they had to paint. They installed Hardibacker Board in preparation for the tile.
Next the tile floors needed to go in.
After the tile was in and grouted, our Wood-Mode Cabinets were delivered.
We protected our floors with a Red Rosin paper that is used as an underlayment for wood flooring
There were a lot of cabinets, moldings and trim delivered.
These were the first cabinets installed.
The new ovens were ready to be installed.
We had to wait to install the upper cabinets on the other side until the template was done for the quartz countertops because the cabinet in the corner sits on the countertop.
