Day 1 done!

The fridge is out, yay!! Our contractor was able to get the wheels off!

The old cabinets are out and the new base ones are in!! The cement board for the floor is in!! The tile guy is coming tomorrow morning to lay the tile! Grout on Friday, I believe!

I can't believe how fast they moved!! It looks a million times better in there already!

All the cabinets and tile are sitting in the living room! The large custom cabinet for the old stairwell looks awesome!!!

Here are some pics. Jack insisted on being a part of them!



That's a skinny 6 inch cabinet there. There will be another above it too, I think. It'll be perfect for storing Saran Wrap, foil, etc. In the old setup, the stove and fridge were right next to each other. We wanted to put something in between them to make it more efficient.

No big treasures to be found although he found a ton of old junky papers and some old dog medicine! He did come across this which I thought was neat! 4 cent postage!! Must be from the 1950's!

Looking good! I like the skinny cabinet too. That's the one thing that's missing in my kitchen that I could really have used.
Love that Free Film envelope. You'll have to work it into a scrapbook page.

Those cabinets are gorgeous! You're right - amazing at the difference already. Waving hi to Jack! :D

The film envelope is a very cool find. Sure beats the 8' long 2x10 we found buried by the builder in our backyard. LOL
