Eichler Kitchen Renovation - Demolition

i-BNXHwpQ-XL.jpg

We are finally nearing the end phases of our very own Eichler Renovation, which started officially in May.

Months of planning, budgeting, and weekend warrior DIY have been very exhausting (did I say exhausting?!), but in that DIY mentality (slightly crazy), has been incredibly rewarding and satisfying.

We'll start to post backwards a bit to get up to speed on all the phases of the project, and soon, be able to show off the Final Reveal!

There were definitely better ways to demo the tile, but keeping our costs low, we decided to use the simple sledgehammer instead of what we should've used: The Bosch demolition chisel

Tip: Use ZipWalls or simply get some Husky thin plastic sheeting in a roll and tape it up to seal off the roof. We rented the buffer at 8pm for a 4 hour slot, but definitely worked about 7 hours 'til 3am, then returned it at 8am to meet the 4 hour window.
