And so it begins...

Our kitchen renovation has "officially" begun. It's really rainy and gross weather today, so we decided to take up a bit of the tile in the kitchen so that we know what we're getting into with the subflooring. Unfortunately, the grout and mortar holding our nasty white tiles seems to be quite well made because the tile does not want to come up easily. Apparently back in 1983 when they built our house, they used some pretty good stuff. Lucky for us!

We also discovered some lovely leftover termite damage in the front of our pantry. It was just a day full of surprises! The entire moulding was rotted and the drywall pretty much collapsed as soon as we touched it. Nothing like having some exposed insulation in your pantry! Luckily we're starting this project for real in less than a month, so it will be taken care of sooner rather than later. I knew this project was going to be a PAIN but now I'm starting to realize how much work we're in for this summer....





Wish us luck!!

Oh no! Termites! They scare me almost as much as ticks. That is so exciting that y'all are doing the kitchen. I can't wait until we can redo our kitchen floors.

Can't wait to see the update pictures!
