Kitchen destruction has begun! The old appliances have been removed, a wall removed, cabinets removed, old kitchen tiles removed. The new wood floor in the new expansion area is coming out today in preparation for a new Virginia slate floor to unify all. The kitchen will be 400 square feet, not including the greenhouse it will flow into. All new appliances and cabinets, and granite counters with a big granite island will top it out. It's a lot of money and work to fry an egg and make a pot of coffee, but the final product will have two leather chairs, one of which is where I can sit with the dogs at my feet. That should be nice.
