Quite a day. The plumbing was moved, the heating riser removed and the wall opened and reinforced. I was expecting to see the kitchen cabinets through the opening. When the new cabinets are installed there will be a look of continuity between the two rooms.
This is looking back into the old dining room. I marked cabinet locations on the walls and floor.
A nice surprise was the view out the back windows from the new kitchen - believe me, you can actually see better than this photo. There is more of a panoramic look than from the current room.
We expect the HVAC contractor and electrician to start their work this week. Cabinet manufacturing is now critical path for this project, 4 to 6 weeks is the estimated delivery.
