We pulled down the cupboards above the island this morning with my good friend, Doug's, help.
Wow! The whole kitchen opened up and it looks great except we have junk everywhere until the cabinet arrives to store it all back. It took a bit of muscle to get that bad boy down and it quite heavy. It will now adorn the garage wall and store all sorts of junk I should get rid of.
The contractor arrives Monday to start the wall demolition and reroute the cold air return. Ben and I moved the Internet cable to the bookcase and that went well. We could not budge the built in desk from the wall not sure why. I will let the contractor handle that now.
