Like some of you already know, I just bought a new old house, that need some work to be done. So I'll be putting up some pictures here to show you my progress in the process.



This is the view from the living room looking at the kitchen, and you can see the beautiful colors they had in there.

So I decided to open up the owl thing

Here I'm almost done with a big pile of garbage

Here I blocked the door going to the laundry room and put the door in the hallway

My kitchen cabinet came in. it's a lot cheaper if you put them together yourself.

Here I'm doing the tiles on the counter top and the backslash

Here's a view from the living room

and the kitchen done

Nice job Dozer. You make me want to get my hubby in gear and start remodeling our house. The kitchen is gorgeous! (and that means a lot since my step-dad builds cabinets and furniture for a living and we were always spoiled with nice things)

It looks great. Glad to see you and your puppy have a good home to go to every night.
Enjoy your new home and your hard work.

Man you are working hard and fast. Nice to get open plan. I love space. Is it legal to have a microwave right above the stove like that? I mean, all that steam getting at the electricals!

I guess those weren't load-bearing walls...

We have a similar issue in our '70s home, but one of the walls I'd like to take down supports a truss. It's going to go, one day...


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Put in a column/pillar thing instead. I have seen that done a lot.

no they aren't bearing walls. the one on the other side of the hallway is.

like Brooke said, you could put a support beam and if it's too far apart put a column in the middle.

Yeah, that's what I'm planning to to. But the oak tree in my front yard needs to grow another 3 feet or so. :D
