I did not spend anytime in the shop this weekend but instead spent the weekend tearing out our old kitchen, there is no going back now.
We have taken everything down to the studs so that we can move electrical, plumbing, gas, and HVAC lines. The floor will come out next.
When planning our kitchen I transferred measurements from my sketches to story sticks. This helped me find a couple of design errors before completing my final drawings. Story sticks were then updated with the final dimensions.
I have tacked the story sticks to the walls. They are now being used to identify the new utility locations and any areas I need to add nailers to support the upper cabinets. I have also taken the time to mark the stud locations on the sticks, this will be good information in the future.
Next week I have a little more prep work but should be back in the shop again.
