Demo continues

The kitchen structure continues to diminish.
I have been trying to get by every day, just to look.

Tuesday’s effort – not much to see

Same old perspective, but too dark - late and phone battery dying

Wednesday – found some new structural elements

And noticed some of the old house was missing.

Thursday – Normal vantage point view.

New transom window over the door?

With this set-up do you look out the window? Or just through the wall.

Cool discovery of an old Cold Pantry.

The holes in the floor were drilled into the basement area. Cool air comes up in the summer, and goes out through the vents in the wall. I have seen several houses with these square areas in the neighborhood. Never saw them on our house because they had been covered up by at least one layer of siding.

I am starting to think that our kitchen, and house, originally ended at the archway.

    Wow–this is an amazing amount of demolition. How long will it take to put it back together?
