We began the demo on the farmhouse kitchen today. We started by tearing out the old counter tops and lower cabinets. The upper cabinets are not being removed.
What was revealed was no big surprise. Plaster walls, damaged in spots, a bit of old water damage where the sink was and the cabinets had been sitting on the old original floor. There have been a number of floors over the years so we are going to have the raise up the old floor for the new cabinets.
Whoever built these cabinets sure didn’t plan to be around when they were removed. They were built solid and nailed into place with lots and lot of big nails, some as big as 4 inches.
The new cabinets are scheduled to be installed this month. I will post updates as the project progresses.
