Well, it’s February and we need to have the mason start on turning the doorways in the stone house back into windows (so we can remove the 1950s addition and restore the original front of the stone house. However, we’re completely unready for all this.  The kitchen has a sink, dishwasher but is lacking cabinets, countertops, drawers, etc.  We moved our electric range under the new range hood… next to my tool table.

Then Ethan and I began deconstructing. The series of photos tell it all.

By the time we were done we had discovered the kitchen has 3 layers of linoleum (good thing) because we had to cut out a major support beam for the floor so it sags more every day! This is what it looks like now.

Stay tuned as David Walker, the mason, rebuilds the stone work and we use a window from we took from the other part of the house and use it here.
