07:52 am: Bringing the house down
The kitchen remodeling project has been the dominant activity around here the past week. I've been taking a few pictures to provide an overview of all the changes.

Before:
Wall separating the kitchen and dining room.
Old kitchen with corner sink and view into the neighbor's house.

Day 1 of demolition.
Day 5, with the old windows boarded up and the space for the new window framed.
Beam replacing the wall.

It hasn't been too bad doing without a kitchen. I have plenty of electrical appliances to use for heating food, and it's actually kind of convenient (if rather crowded) having the refrigerator next to the living room couch. I am looking forward to the completion of the project, though.

My brother was able to visit briefly over the weekend, which was really nice. He got a chance to take a quick tour of the house and yard. My parents also took him to Palo Alto to look around Stanford while I was at work.

Impressive renovations!! I have a corner sink too, and I can only say what were they thinking? Yay for progress :-)

I'm ridiculously excited to see how your kitchen remodel turns out. (Is the picture of the beam from inside the kitchen or out?)

That's from the inside looking out.

OK, that makes more sense. I was thinking it was on the outside looking in, and couldn't figure out why the wall on the left was also torn apart.

Does that mean the wall I scuffed with the dining chair is now gone? YAY!

Correct. No more wall!
