When I was little I may or may not have been a little clumsy. I also may or may not have gotten the nickname Destructo when I may or may not have broken three Christmas ornaments when decorating the Christmas tree. But Destructo just stood back and watched as things were torn to pieces here in the kitchen. And tear it up they did! But, it is all for the greater good!

This Jeff, our contractor. I just can't tell you enough good things about him. He has been terrific to work with.

Allen thought this looked like fun! That is not Allen, he would never allow his hair to get like that. You can't even see this guy's scalp!

See that random pipe in the corner? It was a challenge to figure out how to make our perfectly square cabinets fit there when there was a huge pipe in the corner. However, Jeff made it work.

They tore out everything down to the subfloor. What a mess it made in the basement below!

I didn't get one of them patching up the old door and cutting a new one, because we had to leave for that!
The nice, new wall with fresh sheetrock!

Coming soon will be the pictures of it being built back.


  1. What a mess! I don't know how you are living through it!!


  2. Can't wait to see the finished project! How's it going with the boys and the mess?

  3. I am so excited for you. I am looking forward to the "AFTER" shots.
