Windham Kitchen Remodel
On this particular kitchen remodeling project, we have several areas that need to be addressed in order to create a more functional and inviting kitchen for the home. To begin with, the wall separating the kitchen and dining room will be cut down to 42" off the floor creating a more open area and a new bar top will be installed for those quick breakfast meals for the children. Not only will this half wall help develop a more "open concept" which is always a sought after detail with most homebuyers today, but in the end provide a valued feature to the home. Secondly, with the kitchen sink currently installed on an interior wall, there is no practical way to enjoy the backyard view and the sun during those warm summer mornings. So the plan is to spin things around, raise the current window to a height expectable for a kitchen sink and install a sink which will now face a backyard, the sun and a window equipped with a much desired window sill!
So let's begin.
Window to be resized and replaced This wall to be cut down to size
View from dining area We can see here the location of the kitchen sink
View from the window View of dining area from kitchen
Window trim removed and window is ready to be replaced And so the demolition begins!
