Demoing the Wardrobe

We got the Wardrobe out!
We didn't have much time but we still managed to sneak out for about 45 minutes and were able to get a little more demoed.
We have three young kids... what were we thinking when we took on this renovation project?!






The kids love helping out so we try to let them help whenever it is safe for them to do so.





more pics up on this blog post.

Large Wardrobe Demo

We got the big wardrobe out!

First we removed the room divider.


Then the closet doors.


I forgot how big the wardrobe was!


The door support came down next.


Then a wall!


The final board.


And this is what we were left with.


more photos on our blog.

Honestly I am not sure. I will take a closer look this weekend when we are working on her again. I thought plastic but Fiberglass makes sense too. She is a, '84 Excella if that helps.

Thank you!

Pantry Demo and more Carpet Demo

When the carpet was removed we were left with this surprise. Nothing like giant holes covered by orange carpet to help me make my case for all new sub-floor!



We started by taking off doors



And then took out the upper cabinet



and then went the accordian divider and a wall.
After that the metal frame for the cabinet



Progress!


More photos and info on the blog.

You going to throw away the interior. Mine is an 81 and it did not have any real wood in it. Yours looks like it at least had come veneer. Mine was rotted worse than that at the rear.

A lot of it will be thrown away. I am going to keep some things around in hopes of using them again but we are not banking on it.

Fridge Out!

We finally got the fridge out. We had some trouble shooting to do but once we did that everything went smoothly.


It took a good dose of WD40 but Tim was finally able to get the propane unhooked



What we learned is that every once in a while we need to take the time to do a quick vacuum of this area. I don't know if it ever had been cleaned but the gunk build up made taking out the fridge tough.



Once all wires and propane were unhooked we unscrewed the base of the fridge.



Unplugged it and then it was ready to be hauled out!



Once the final wall was out we were left with this. We are over half done with demo!

I wish I had the interior stuff you are throwing out and that you were closer. At least your stuff was wood.

Most of it was water damaged particle board. It was in no condition to save. We saved the cabinet doors and drawers though. Those were solid.
