But I am already dreaming of open shelving, cement counters, custom white cabinets and a giant natural wood island. We already have our appliances so I am itching to get it pulled together. Zeb says that demo has been exactly what he expected. But for me I can say that it’s way harder than I thought. And my sledge hammer skills aren’t as good as I though they would be. We are really loving uncovering the bones of...
