Renovations Continue, Or How Iron Bess Went Crazy

Hi there, how is life in the winter wonderland that is yours?  Ours is kinda shitty, a tiny bit of snow, a bit of rain, and a whole whack of wind.  Yesterday was spent pulling down more cabinetry and then pulling nails out of said cabinets, today was much the same.  So without further ado here are a few pictures of things in progress. 

It may not look like a bunch of work, but it certainly feels like it.  We managed to get almost all the tiles off the ceiling and pulled out about a thousand staples.  Then of course there was the matter of taking the reciprocating saw to some of the countertops and cabinets, a crow bar or two, a hammer or two and a bunch of grunting and groaning.  Then of course there is the whole, "how are we going to wash dishes and such when we start actually having to take the walls and window out from behind the sink?" question.  You build sawhorses to hold up the sink and then plumb it so that you can hook and unhook valves as required, of course.  That took a lot of time.  Oh the joys of it all.  As you can see from the final picture we still have some of that beautiful faux brick stuff to take off the walls.  It was glued on with tar.  Yummy.  Tomorrow...much of the same.
