« Part 2: The Plan Part 3 of Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel series Part 4: Building the Upper Cabinets »

Phase 1 of the demo is complete. We will replace the uppers, put everything back in service, then replace the lower cabinets.

The cabinets were installed with screws so it was a simple matter of removing the screws and taking the cabinets down. We did remove the doors, then put them back on after they were on the floor. Regardless of what you might see on the TV DIY shows, no cabinets were damaged in this demo! :)

We now have a clean slate. a bit holey, but clean all the same. I plan to patch the holes above the stove.

Love these cabinet jacks. I got the idea from this article.

I remember that you built new cabinets in your shop, will some of these make their way to the shop too?

Thanks. The old cabinets were picked up yesterday. We should make good progress this coming week building face frames, carcasses, rerouting some electrical and patching the drywall.
