Making room for a vent

My kitchen is a work in progress.

Here’s what’s happening so far:

  • Ripped out the double oven, microwave, cooktop and gave them to a friend.
  • Ripped out the cabinet that held the oven, microwave, and cooktop.
  • Tore the soffit down above the oven space to create a space for a vent to the outside.
  • Moved all of the plates, pans, and everything else into the dining room. Or what I like to call the kitchen annex.
  • Sawed away the countertops. (Yeah, we’ll need to replace those sometime soon.)
  • Wainscoting is up as the backsplash for the oven and underneath all of the cabinets. Big bonus: I don’t have to tear down all the wallpaper behind it and then repair the walls to paint. It’s covered, literally!
  • Removed all of the doors and hardware on the upper cabinets.
  • Put in a vent through the upper soffit to the outside.
  • Place the hood in it’s spot.
  • Move the oven and get the gas hooked up.

Well, that’s enough for one week!
