and so it begins

Ok, here's how to do a kitchen renovation in ten days (we hope!!).

First we have to take out the two meter long 40 year old cement counter.

Monday evening, Stéphane took off the doors and we emptied out the cabinets.

the doors are gone

Tuesday morning, Stéphane and our friend Marc did the rest of the destruction. First, the wood comes off:

Then out comes the sink, and thanks to some power tools, a couple of crowbars and some big nasty sledgehammers, the rest broken down and carried out.

the dust settles

Stéphane and Marc are currently carting the remains to the dump and this is what my kitchen looks like right now:

tidied up

Tomorrow, Stéphane will top up the big hole with some cement to even it up, and then Thursday it's off to IKEA to pick our new kitchen! Woo!
