Step 1, Phase 1 The Project Begins


Counter and Cabinets Headed to the Landfill
October 20, 2018
It was not without its challenges, but step 1 of the demolition phase of the remodeling project was successfully completed yesterday. 

The Counter and Bar are Removed
October 20, 2018
When it was over, the counter was deconstructed and removed to the landfill. It totaled 520 pounds of construction debris but the room looks much larger than before. The hardest part turned out to be getting the foundation board off the concrete. It was both nailed into and glued onto the concrete. It was not going anywhere and had to be removed a piece at a time. The pile of wood in the picture are the remnants of the 2X10 board. It burned very nicely in the fire pit!

The big problem are the two electric wires that I need to turn into plugs and, oh yes, the missing piece of wall board! Turns out the bar was built into the basement as it was finished, which makes sense. It was build to never be removed, well, except now it is gone. 

We are definitely committed now and will be buying the new floor soon. We are also going to be painting the room  as soon as we can choose a new color. We are down to the final choices and want to get painting as soon as deconstruction is over, and when I get the wall repaired.
