My window of time to order the kitchen cabinets at Home Depot and closing quickly. I am going over the design over and over. I keep measuring to ensure I thought of everything I need to.
So to help me ensure I was seeing the design properly in my head I decided walls needed to be opened up. So yesterday afternoon after I was all wrapped up with work I started tearing into walls. Jessica had a late work meeting so I knew I had some time to do some damage before she got home.
If you’re curious, no i did not demo like you see on HGTV. No sledgehammers, no throwing punches or hammer through the wall. I methodically cut piece of sheetrock out in as big of a chunk as I could. I was trying to create as little dust and mess as possible. After each piece of wall board was removed I would vacuum the dust and small rock pieces. With three dogs, they would have tracked, or worse, eaten the dust.
I don’t have a dumpster yet, do for now the large pieces of sheetrock are leaning against the garage outside. A nice little decoration for my neighbors 🙂 They are used to it. At my house it is one project after the next. No I can’t sit still. I always like to be moving. Of course as I was removing the debris from the house, it was monsoon raining. The wind was whipping and the rain was coming down in huge drops side ways. I was completely soaked walking the 60 feet or so round trip. No rain would stop me. I had a deadline to meet!
So after taking out some walls and seeing the sight lines I was imagining, I think the design is ready to go.
