lots of progress again Tuesday as (most of) the rest of the kitchen cabinets went out as well as the carpet in the space adjacent. The first section of soffit is down.
(the carpet is all gone! @bmds99 says "get excited!")
Tomorrow the rest of the soffit comes down and sheet rock goes up to cover all the exposed places. Also on tap this week - goodbye to linoleum in backhall, tile in foyer and a small strip of carpet in hall between kitchen and foyer.
