It's going to get worse before it gets better...

Tile gone

Baseboards gone

Carpet gone

Reluctant participant

Top Cabinets....are staying

Concrete patch

Clean up

 I'm not going to lie to you this was dusty work, between the hammer we rented to lift the tiles, mixing concrete patch and grinding down the high spots we were covered with fine dust.  I felt a little like pig pen, with every step we took little clouds of dust billowed around  us.

Also expenses I never factored in, hammer rental, dump fees, gas, concrete patch and contractor bags  I'm sure it won't stop there  The really big one was the tile underlayment, who knew? That will be the next post.....

You probably noticed the base cabinets are gone, that was because who ever designed the kitchen didn't make room for a dishwasher.  Who wants one of those? Me.  The other thing that was driving me nuts was the dead cabinet space in the blind corner.  After reading tips for designing kitchen layouts, they recommend avoiding corners.  Not very helpful.

So the base cabinets are another added expense.

Onward and upward, next week, tile underlayment

So far one blister, down 2 lbs, it's the renovation diet.
