WHW: Demo Series

Hey y'all & Happy Wednesday. Today I'm sharing some updates we've made to our new project. (mostly on the demo side of things) We've taken out all of the radiators this time around because we plan to install new duct work throughout. (Can I get an Amen?!) and also can I just take a moment to tell y'all how much I adore central air? I know, you might be giggling right now and saying "um welcome to this century" but I haven't had it since 2013...I repeat...2013! I ADORED our old home, everyone knows that, but we didn't have central air. Of course we had window units during the summer and super tall ceilings but STILL y'all - not the same AT all! I turned it on for the first time the other day when it reached mid 90's outside and I just stood there taking in the smell, the feel, the sound. It was glorious. 




Anyway, I digress. So moving on to the next phase of demolition. We've started to take down all of the plaster and also take down the existing kitchen basically in its entirety. There are two stairwells and a supporting wall that we need to somehow get rid of to open up the space. We've decided to bring in a structural engineer and he is actually on his way here now. I'm hoping that even though the floor joists are running the opposite way, we can get away with a hidden (or exposed) beam or two and not have to have a post or column in the space but we'll see. In preparation for the engineer, here's what we've exposed in the potential kitchen so far.

He's smirking at my paparazzi skills!




Emma Jo decided to stop by and check out the place for the first time! Anyway, I'll keep y'all posted on how the engineer meeting goes. Afterwards we should have a pretty clear vision for the future kitchen. Thanks for linking up today!

  3. We have central air for the first time in our condo and it's amazing! Growing up in Florida it was a weird thing for me to get used to when I moved up here, but I'm so happy we have it again! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

  4. I cannot believe you have not had central air!! I'm not sure I would survived without it. Truth be told, I have never lived without it. It's been in every home I've lived in. LOL. But I know so many people without it and I don't understand how they do it.
