Well. Moved everything out of the kitchen. Disconnected Sink. Only Fridge and Kitchen stove remain.
Busted out drywall on outside facing wall. Removed old 1950's Windows. My house is a old hospital from WW2 when Pecos was a airbase. Kitchen was made by me knocking out 2 patient rooms and custom plumbing the fixtures.
I bought new 2x4s and re framed outside wall from the inside as old framing boards were termite damaged. We have have had Orkin already treat the place for a couple of grand. Framing is done.
Custom wiring installed by me from breaker box in utility room through ceilng to Kitchen was next. Done. I have now mounted four 4 gang boxes
on outside wall to give the wife 8 receptacles to go over some metal kitchen cabinets from the 1950's that I am also paint stripping, and going to repaint white also. I paint my own motorcycles so I have the right gear and experience for that also.
Used R30 insulation between outside stucco wal and new 5/8 drywall. Also installed new sliding windows. Drywall is 3/4 done. Still have tapeing and spackle to go though. Installed new outlets today also.
Will be using White Marble ceramic wall tile as a back splash for sink and kitchen cabinets.
Still have a gas line to rerun to relocate kitchen stove (O'keefe & Merrit circa 1952)
Getting there slowly but surely and not spending $45,000 on remodeling costs like on the Home channel.
