I'm not quite sure what gave me the impression that our kitchen renovation would be a smooth process when absolutely NOTHING in our life is....but I was duped again.
Day 1 of work - went very smoothly. all of the cabinets, walls, and appliances were removed. I was shocked when I got home!
Same view after
Day 2 - trouble already...they started to get the floor out and while messing with the baseboard heat, the pipe burst and sent water all over the kitchen and down to the basement. the rest of that day was lost to cleaning and plumbing. but they did get the ceiling out.
Over the weekend it rained pretty hard and I could hear dripping in the kitchen. In the morning I checked it out and the floor was all wet. the roof is leaking, which must have been going on all along but the insullation was soaking it up.
Day 3 - got the rest of the floor out to the studs. they went to put down the new subfloor only to find that the power went out. the electrical box needs to be replaced. they're waiting for an electrician to come.
