Welcome to our Home Renovation!
This is part 13 of our Kitchen Remodel – we are tearing down walls and adding a pantry.
Please excuse our mess…we are messy when working in the kitchen!
All through this process, I keep calling my Mom because she is keeping all 5 kids. So, Mom this picture is for you….this is where my new walk-in pantry is going! (Can’t wait to post more about that!)
Notice the brick column, it is coming down!
This is the last board holding up the old load-bearing wall.
When he cuts through the boards, all the weight will shift unto the new wall.
No Roof Cave-In!
Thank you Mr. Beam –
You have worked really hard the past 30 plus years.
(Yes, we talk to our beams around here.
But, we do NOT cuss at them!)
Brick column – you are coming down.
I didn’t cuss at this monster either…just kicked it back when I had flip-flops on…it won.
A little at a time though, because someone filled you with more bricks.
And you are heavy!
These are the new load-bearing beams-there are 3 of them. We had our neighbor and a friend come over to help lift them up.
I know – not the cleanest kitchen on the block.
But, it will get better!
I can’t wait to show our progress!
How old is your home?
Is there something about it- that you would put in every home that you live in-from now on?
