Kitchen Reno - Week 1

We've survived the first week of living in renovation land.  No, it has not been fun living in this noise and dirt, but I just have to keep focused on the outcome.

So far we've gutted the kitchen, taken down the walls between the rooms and removed the ceilings and floors:

Put in a new patio door:

Put up the wood beam on the dining room side, built out the wall around the sink to run all the utilities:

The other beam is waiting to be installed on Monday:

Lots more work has happened (electrical, plumbing, heating, etc.) but I'm not really qualified to talk about any of it (and lets be honest, it's the boring stuff - to talk about anyway - no offense to the awesome guys doing all the hard work).  I truly am surprised by how fast they are getting things done.  But I don't know how they will get that steel beam up there on Monday.
