Well I began my kitchen remodel. My floor is officially in plastic bags and ready for me to toss in a dumpster. I tore down an attached food pantry as well. The pantry is already in the dumpster.

After I clean out the cabinets, next on my todo list, I am going to remove them and will have an empty room.

I will post some pics in the days to come, and trust me when I say I will be asking advice too.

So far 3 man hours and $0 spent.

Ok so far 7 man hours spent and 0$.

The demo is just about done. All I have left to remove is the cabinets, and small aprts of the wall where I plan to re-run electric conduit which was previously run through the floor.

After that I start with a blank canvas and can begin the construction.

The demo is taking much longer than I expected. Carrying the trash to the dumpster is the hardest part :)

Well the Demo is just about finished. I haven't had time for anything with work being so busy so the project fell to the side for the last 2 weeks. The only thing left to demo is the kitchen sink.

Today was 10% off contractor day at Home depot :) Let's just say I got over $300 in discounts. LOL the discounts alone paid for my new table saw!

Cabinets ETA: 4 weeks.
Tile ETA: 7 days.

I have 4 weeks to get that old sink out and rerun a few electric lines. :) Think I can manage?

So far 10 man hours spent and an untotaled dollar amount to be determined.

The kitchen remodel is almost complete. All that is left is the floor tile, and backsplash tile and I can put the appliances in and start living like a human again.

Does anyone else have a fridge and stove in their living room? :)

I must admit I made less mistakes than I thought I would make and more mistakes than I hope I would make :) Not bad for a first try, and all the mistakes were easily corrected.

I'm gonna post pics hopefully by the end of the week when it's all done.

Good for you Grump! somtimes you just have to just dive in, it's the sink or swim hypothisis. I've done a lot of kitchens and have to say they were all fun. They say the kitchen is the heart of the house.......I believe it......Look foward to seeing the pics.

LOL after that post, I re-sanded the entire wall and ceiling. I decided I didn't like how the patching looked in a few areas. I repainted last night and am right back where I was when I posted that reply.

Right after I finish reading this forum I am going to rent a wetsaw and start some tiling.
