And So It Begins

Yup, the "Kitchen Project" has started.  I have two emotional reactions to this, 1) Yippee, I am finally going to get a kitchen which I can get organized.  2) OMG I am completely overwhelmed.  Where to start?  Okay I know I have to start by ripping stuff out, but Oh My, it is going to be a hell of a lot of work in a short period of time.
Here is an update of the kitchen as was and now as is.  Well as is tonight because by tomorrow night there will be a lot less of it.
This picture is of the beautiful thing-a-ma-bob (I personally don't know WTF it was) or should I say Thing Which Caused Head Injuries.  The hubby built a support for it before cutting it down because it must have weighed over two hundred pounds. 

This picture is with TWCHI gone...and good riddance. 

Here is what it looked like up until yesterday.  Buh-bye.

The first cabinet gone and already it makes a HUGE difference in the space-time continuum. 

Now the only thing left to do is to rip out all the rest of the cabinets, rip out the back wall, take down the ceiling, change the window out, rip the side wall down, take all the wall paper off the walls that we are keeping, change the plumbing for the dishwasher, replace all the electrical, fix all the walls that need fixing, put up new insulation and drywall, fix the siding outside, prime and paint the ceiling and walls, lay hardwood flooring in the kitchen, dining room, and living room, and then put the new cabinets up.  But that's all.

    You have my ... hmm.. what's the right word...sympathies? I can definately see this task being a summer one for us wherein we can at least bbq our meals. Mind, I guess you don't have the inch of snow we have building outside right now either. But still, my brain starts to melt at the thought of starting that task.... Good luck. I'm sure it will be beautiful and exactly what you want when you're done.
