Demolition Time!

This looks like fun doesn't it?  It doesn't?  Well I'm here to tell you it is!..... for just about 30 minutes.  But nothing puts money in your pocket like doing the unskilled HARD work yourself.  If you haven't done physically hard work sometime in your life days at a time, hire this done. For inquiring minds the demolition debris went to a pile outside for accumulation into one BIG truckload for the dump. You can also rent a big bin. We saved a bundle and then invested in Ibuprophen. By the way we cancelled many of our holiday obligations in advance for "the project".  Wonder what we will remodel this Christmas.

Out comes the pantry in the corner.  Repeat for all the other cupboards and cabinets.


Repeat for all the other cupboards and cabinets, except the one supporting your working sink.
Next attack the doors, framing and door molding to help get flooring up.
First of three layers of linoleum circa 2012, 197X, 1952.
Now to get the rest up down to the subflooring...  Just set your skill saw to 1/4", cut through it at about 2 feet from wall and get out the digging bar from the tool shed to pry up the old layers.
Two old linoleum layers, 1/4 " plywood and 500 flooring nails later....
I'm tired just looking at the pictures again.  Yes, my t-shirt is soaked.  TMI?  Sorry about that.
Remove the cabinets supporting your working sink LAST!  Yep, you gonna do dishes in the family room bathroom with a dish drainer to one side. Note plastic sheeting to keep the rest of the house relatively dust free.
