Happy SUNday! – kitchen reno

Getting closer.

The upper kitchen cabinets have been removed from over the bar, now it’s time to get rid of the soffit structure.
I’m standing on the bar countertop tackling the last part of the structure that extends up through the ceiling into the inaccessible attic. It turns out it was nailed into the existing roof trusses and didn’t go without a fight. By the way, I’m the one who built the bar so I know it was capable of holding a rather large me.
Almost gone! See the next picture to check out the new hole.
At the moment I’m leaving it open to be able to run new wiring.
Another ugly wall that will get repaired. I’m leaving it open at the moment because I need to run wiring for ceiling-mounted recessed LED lights. The white pipe is the drain vent that extends up through the roof. The unpainted beadboard was covered by the upper cabinets.

We started our kitchen reno in March 2021. Our home was built and we purchased it new in 1991 so it seemed like a good time to update the look of the kitchen and upgrade the appliances. Tomorrow I get my cabinet doors and drawers back from the paint shop. I’ll be sure to post a few pics after they get installed. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
