Weekend Project

One of the projects we needed to accomplish
in order to put our home on the market
was tackling this kitchen cabinet replacement.

One small, unnoticed leak caused damage,
so we knew it would have to be replaced.

This was caused by cargo shorts being worn
and standing too close to the cabinet.
Tore the whole door right off.
Not once, but twice.
I guess Lil' Guy and I are exactly the right height
to cause this calamity.
It's not feasible to replace all of the knobs,
so we'll just make do.

Even though Big K is amazingly handy,
he didn't feel comfortable handling
this job because of all the pipes and connections.
We called in a professional.

The countertop, sink and cabinet were removed,
pipes disconnected and the area was cleaned up a bit.

We purchased the new cabinet at a big box store.

After the replacement was made,
the sink was reinstalled
and some serious vacuuming went on.

For now, the doors have been left off,
at least until two of our family members
grow a bit taller,
or stop wearing cargo shorts!

We are one step closer to headin' toward our homestead!
