Kitchen Renovation - Days 1 & 2: Demo

We started demo on the kitchen yesterday, and it continued into today. It wasn’t too bad, everything came out, for the most part, without too much drama, and we had some good laughs at the strange finds. At this point, everything but the floor, and the lighting, has been taken out. What used to be my kitchen is looking So here we go, in pictures:

The first thing we did, pull out the stove. What it looked like under and behind. EW.

Oh look, some under cabinet lighting we never knew existed. We got most of the cabinets out, besides the sink base cabinet, on Friday night.

Right now, after a second day of demo, involving some plumbing work, and several trips to our dump (in the pouring rain) we're looking at this:

Tomorrow, we’re getting the new window put in, and maybe pull up some of the flooring? I don’t know, I don’t know if we’ll have enough time! This upcoming week we’re *fingers crossed* looking at a whole bunch of electrical and some tiling. We also made a big purchase that will arrive Friday, which I’ll share at a later time, along with some of the fun finds, and the first awful thing that’s happened (yea, it only took two days.).
