Crow bar – CHECK, Hammer – CHECK – LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
We got right into it and managed to take down a full-length kitchen cabinet, which then gave us strength to tear down the existing full-length wall cabinet that was the entire East side of the kitchen, opening the kitchen to it’s original full size. The cabinet walls were each double-sided which made for some tough work. Luckily, Pekka had a much easier time of it considering his size and strength as compared to me. 😉 A size 6’3″ body @105kgs, he’s got a lot more power! 😀
After one afternoon and evening, while Pekka demolished the built in cabinets, I took down the cardboard paneling, and the sturdier insulated variety which was about an inch thick. This was all tacked and nailed down with what seems to me an endless supply of tacks and nails…
The first picture shows the full-length kitchen cabinet that occupied one corner of the kitchen. The second picture shows the door opening to the built-in wall cabinet that ran the full width of the kitchen.
One down, one to go!
We created quite a huge pile of crap that needs to find its way into the dumpster. The dumpster isn’t here yet, but we’ll have plenty and will probably fill one and need to arrange a pick up the next day already! 😀
We’re still working today and will have more to update once we’re completely tired out. Happy May Day!
