Lovely linoleum lived underneath the white tile and cement board. It's pretty thin, and laid right on the wood underneath, so we think we'll be okay to lay the new wood floors right on top.
Everything's gone now. No sink and no water. No electric for the range.
This is our "kitchen" too. The working kitchen. Needless to say, floors and cabinets in the real kitchen cannot come soon enough (but there is a holdup in the shop with the cabinets—grrrr).
I had planned a while back to write a post about staying sane during a kitchen reno, but after several breakdowns I realize that it is making me crazy and the idea of me writing that post would be laughable. So, no. There is no staying sane. Especially when you are pregnant with no kitchen and just 10 weeks to go before baby makes his or her arrival! That's if he or she doesn't arrive early (but everything's going great, and there's no indication of that at all). Still, I want to be ready NOW. Would you be freaking out too?
