And the kitchen wall is down!

We got an e-mail from our contractor asking us to come check things out today, particularly the closet we will be using as a pantry.  I dropped by really quickly after work because I had to go to Dream Dinners and snapped a few pics on my phone:

The wall is down and the pantry is gone. 

The carpet is up!

The door for what used to be the coat closet has been removed.  We are moving it to the other side and adding shelves so it will be a pantry. 

The space for the kitchen table is much bigger!

It's so open!

The pink/rose/mauve carpet is up!

Demo begins!

This morning and I met briefly with our contractor to chat about the bathroom renovation.  When we got there he was removing cabinets from the walls in the kitchen.  We decided after work to go and check and see how much work was done and we were surprised at how different it looks already.  Of course I took the camera along and snapped some pictures to share.  

The kitchen:

We are taking out this wall and putting in a breakfast bar/peninsula. 

 The bathroom:

Our kitchen cabinets (The plan is to save them but if we have enough money left in the budget I'd prefer to get new ones.  We will see.)
