We started digging into the kitchen yesterday. We planned to remove cabinets to the right of the refrigerator, so that we could flip it back against the wall.
Turns out everything was attached- nothing came apart easily... of course.
The cabinets above the refrigerator and along the wall must have been custom built- they are ALL one BIG piece.
So they came out. Lots of nastiness above the cabinets- but it is a farm house, right? Check out the hole in the upper left corner of the ceiling above the spot where the refrigerator was- it was chewed through. I'm thinking probably a chipmunk or squirrel- we even found the remains of a acorn on top of the shelves. **turns out it was a small squirrel, which got caught in the trap**
Next- cut the bottom cabinets, move the refrigerator out of the wall, and dig into the corner near the ovens. We also bought some lovely track lights for the ceiling. There just isn't enough light in there- the walls tend to stay dark. I atually like the lights, but they may not be permanent.
If you have any suggestion for lighting, send me a link.
