How We're Making Mom's Remodel Dreams Come True!

03.20.15
This is #MyCurrentProject - but it's one that has been in the works for many, many years. Around Mother's Day 2012, Armstrong
  • Mom and Dad posing the day the kitchen demo started. Note the bungee cord which holds the oven closed.
  • Dated and very lived in, a family of 8 spent many evenings eating together in this kitchen.
  • Exterior demo of the brick to allow for a 3' cantilevered "bump out" of the kitchen.
  • Temporary shoring holds up the 16' wide section of roof, and the new wall is shown 3' out.
  • Part of many kitchen remodel projects, the electrical service was upgraded. Most modern kitchens require 8-12 circuits, and this dangerous Federal Pacific panel was upgraded for more space and safety.
  • The flooring contained asbestos and needed remediation. A good reason to always test for presence of hazardous materials prior to demo.
  • The first cabinet going up!
  • A couple of junior inspectors made an impromptu visit to see the progress.
  • Mom gives 2 "likes" for her countertop template, as the sink layout is discussed by the team.
  • February 2013: The "bump out" is complete, and the deck portion is underway. Snow is just beginning to fall in this photo.
  • Mom's first batch of cupcakes! This means progress for sure!
  • Almost complete kitchen. Still waiting for tile backsplash, knobs/ pulls, and undercabinet trim.
