Huge Kitchen Renovation Update Pt 1

Time flies by when you're having fun!

After the electrical was completed, and the lights were hung, the big boys stepped in and took over.

They were the best crew that I could have!  I still worked on the renovation, however I had to earn a living too.   We had a new window installed in what was going be the dining room, in the process of framing the window, we ran into our first "Gotcha".  The bottom plate that supported the wall was completely destroyed by insects (namely termites).  The insects were gone, but the damage remained. 

The wall had to be reframed from the bottom up.



After finishing that, work progressed and the room was insulated .
