Today it started. Our kitchen/den renovation. Stuart Gaines, owner of New Blue Construction, is our contractor and what a fabulous contractor he is! In 2008, Stuart built our new deck/screened-in porch, and we absolute love! Stuart’s work ethics, compassion and the fact that he is trained as a Certified Green Professional with the NAHB, are qualities that matter when anyone is attempting construction or renovation.
At 9 o’clock today Stuart’s crew arrived and began the demolition process. The electrician also arrived to mark where the lighting will be installed. After the New Blue guys install the sheetrock on both the walls and ceiling, it will be easier for the electrician to install the lighting with holes already in the old ceiling.
Here are a few before shots (after we cleared everything out).
Below are some tools of the trade and broken down cabinets in the den.
Below, the picture on the left is the cabinet the wall oven use to occupy and the picture on the right is the refrigerator’s home.
Tomorrow will not be an eventful day….just having the ceiling markings cut out.
