It is kitchen demo day there are few things we need to watch out for that might negatively impact our design plans. For example, building code issues might not have been followed and we need to comply with the new codes of today. The soffit could be concealing plumbing, electrical, or HVAC components.
Part of the design plan is to expose the chase with the hope of revealing some brick and make it a featured wall in the open concept kitchen space. If our hopes are crushed, we will have to create an alternate plan.
The first step to the kitchen demolition is to pull the sink, pull the counter tops off, and pulling the base cabinets out. After everything is torn out, we will place everything on palates and donate the old cabinets to the Habitat of Humanity ReStore.
