As you probably remember, this is what the kitchen looked like when we first viewed the home while the previous owners were in it (prior to being damaged by them)....
Obviously, the kitchen was not in this shape when we finally moved in. In addition, since we were replacing the cabinets we decided to open up the kitchen/eating area/den to make a true great room by extending the kitchen, adding an oversized island, and making it an eat in kitchen.
Demo began last Monday, and this is what the kitchen looked like after the demolition was complete.
