The first week we were busy demo-ing the existing kitchen while our plumber was installing the rough plumbing. New gas lines to the range and the new fireplace were installed. The sink and plumbing shifted to the left a bit to center the sink under the window. This is a very common request we have when remodeling a kitchen with an offset sink.This is the new, improved dishwasher for the duration of the remodel, the second one of the many reasons why staying on schedule is so crucial. Once all the cabinets were removed, it was time for the electrician to start rough electrical. With no attic space above these rooms we had to remove some drywall to get the wires where they needed to be. The placement of the electrical wires was critical to the placement of the island. There is nothing worse that a light fixture that isn’t quite centered on the cabinet or table below it. Once all the electrical wires for the speakers, under cabinet lights, ceiling fan, appliances and tankless water heater (for the hydronic floor heat) were in place it was time to replace the drywall.
