Day three of kitchen remodel.
Thursday I had the day off. I was suppose to work on the kitchen as much as my knowledge and talent would allow. Naturally I did the easy stuff first, I pulled up the caulk. Now, our house usually only surprises us when something is done right. So I can't say I'm too shocked about this caulking job. The bottom right hand of the pictures is an average size of caulk. It serves the purpose of creating a seam between the wall and the cabinet. The caulk on the left is about 1.5 inches thick. It was serving as a filler for the huge gap between the not square wall and off kilter cabinets. Love my house!
As for the fact I did a lot of this by my self when Hubs wasn't home, there are no pictures of me actually working. Also my progress wasn't really noticeable. I did take one for the team and crawled into the cabinet and un bolt the counter top. Now, this doesn't seem like a big deal but the opening was less then 1 foot and I had my entire body from my waist up in this cabinet along with a large drill and no flashlight. I mean, who was going to hold it!? Still not a big deal? Well we have all seen those cartoons where the character easily gets into position and can't get out right? Well that was me. Half body stuck inside tiny cabinet with a husband who "won't be home for a while" according to his call 20 minutes prior. I panicked. I panicked big time! I wiggled and wrangled and eventually had to take my hair down and worm my way out. You know that weird dance move the worm? The one where someone lays on the stomach and moves across the floor? Well I did that on my side out of the cabinet until my shoulders were loose then I rotated and pulled the rest out. Needless to say I didn't get that far into the cabinet again.
Once Hubs got home, we put up a fence and ate dinner we worked on the kitchen. And yes, we are doing more then one major project at the moment. We are fencing in 2/3 of our back yard for the dogs but its been so cold we dont' work on it for long periods of time. Back to the kitchen!
After getting all the cabinets out we cleaned up. Well, you know as much as you can at this point. It only required two trips to dump trash. The fridge in its new place. I can only take this picture because there is no cabinet in my way.
Well at this point it was still early in the evening as far as remodeling goes so I started on the faucet. You know the part of the wall that juts out and covers the top of your cabinet for no real reason? You can see it on the picture above its covered with the coffee wall paper. I removed all of the wall paper that wasn't on the faucet early, between getting stuck and web surfing.
