Day One

Work began today on our new kitchen. It seems like we had just finished finding and removing all the dirt and dust generated by our last remodeling project. All the work that Deirdre and I did over the weekend in preparation for the first day of demolition paid off as today came and went pretty quickly and there were no major surprises. As I have learned in our previous remodeling projects, you never quite know what you are going to find when you tear out a wall or rip up some tile. Jim did find some water damage underneath the sink, which we sort of expected. In Jim's persnickety way, he was troubled that the last time this kitchen was remodeled that the damage was not repaired. Now, he will have the chance to make things right.

The kitchen is sealed off with plastic sheets and blue duct tape. It is goin
g to take a few days for our chi to resettle as we try to find our path with this major disruption to our lives. However, you cannot make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. Over the course of the next few days, a lot of eggs will be broken. Look for updates daily.
