Save the plaster, the upper cabinets, all millwork, and the windows (is that millwork). The douglas fir cabinets had been refaced in the long past. Could it be removed?
The kitchen before… Upper cabinets are original with refacing and paint..
The evil laundry porch.
Close up on laundry sink. Nice huh?
Under the sink. That is my poor man’s possum proofin.
My first homemade shelf. Good times.
If I had a hammer… Demolition Time!!!!
I demo gently. Actually Habitat for Humanity took all the doors and hardware. They recycle them into new homes. Cool.
Off comes the veneer. Friends should not let friends reface their nice fir cabinets!
We took a sample of the flooring to a lab. No abestos. Douglas fir floors underneath!
The orignal floor found under the cabinets. We recycled the beadboard into a patch for another part of the wall.
The laundry gets a new home.
The top cabinets are stripped!
Lots more to come soon…..
