Dishwasher leaked a few months ago and ruined the floor and some of the cabinets. When we tore up the floor, we found moldy linoleum and asbestos.
Around the same time we had a leak from the upstairs bathroom that messed up the ceiling in the kitchen and bathroom.
It has taken quite a while to resolve these issues and we are possibly about 2/3s of the way through it.
Along the way, here are some of the things that have had to happen:
Move everything out of the kitchen into the living room.
Have asbestos abatement folks come to remove the flooring.
Fix plumbing and electrical issues.
Tear out parts of the floor and ceiling, molding and trim, repair drywall.
Tons of other little things my husband did that I am sure I am forgetting.
Choose cabinets, counter, backsplash tile, sink, faucet, aux faucet, water filter system, dishwasher, fridge, flooring, vent hood, paint for walls and ceiling.
Tear out cabinets and counter.
Haul to dump.
Repair ceiling, walls, spackle, prime, texture, paint.
Here are some in progress photos, first with the living room turned kitchen:
We expect to have cabinets installed in less than a week, but since we chose to go with a more high end counter from a different company than the one that’s doing our cabinets, it will take several sink-less weeks before we get the counter and sink in place.
