First day of renovations

So, you know when you start planning a project, and you think it's going to be super easy going and no-stress at all? Yeah we were wrong. We had just planned on working on the floor tiles on Saturday, but then we ended up removing more kitchen cabinets, the sink, redoing the plumbing, and building all the ikea furniture. oops. So, only half the kitchen floor is complete, but I can't even begin to thank all of the people who showed up to help! What was supposed to be four of us, turned out to be eight! 

The floor looks great, and both Brendan and I learned a big deal about tiling floors. It's trickier than it looks, but you get a hang of it pretty quickly. The hardest part is probably making sure everything is always level, straight, and the same height. We're lucky we don't have to deal with very many corners and angled cuts. Yet. 

Before we keep working on the floors, we're going to tackle one of the dry walls behind the sink, and behind the kitchen cabinets which were pretty ruined in the demolition. We've bought mold-resistant gyprock and we're planning on tackling it this week. We'll see though. 

Here's what's left on the list:

  • Redo walls
  • Finish tiles
  • Grout tiles
  • Build barrier
  • Mount kitchen cabinets
  • Fix plumbing
  • Cut kitchen counters
  • Build breakfast area/bar area
