Part 1 in our series as we recap the remodel of our drab '75 split-level over the past year:
Kicking off our house remodel, we really dove in on the kitchen as it's the main part of our remodel.
The fun began as the Puget Sound Abatement crews started ripping out the kitchen, down to the studs (Talk about feeling your stomach drop) At the same time, they started sealing up the house from inside to start scraping the ungodly amount of popcorn. It's pretty amazing to see how they seal it up, and created a completely enclosed system to work in.
We also got the OK on removing our kitchen wall, because of the type of truss the house has. So we're good to go on our plans of opening it up to the dining and living room, woot!
Next on the list for kitchen is getting new electrical to support new appliances, re-insulating, and then dry-walling, replacing the ancient insulation in attic space with blow in fluff, and then starting our kitchen design process for cabinets etc.
Elsewhere in the house, we need to patch up ceiling and walls that were scraped, new trim and molding/casing replaced throughout house, new flooring throughout, re-texturize walls, and finally, paint. Talk about a marathon!
