The contractor surprised my by starting a day early on my kitchen. All of the cabinets & the stove are gone and he set up a temporary kitchen in the corner of my dining room. He got a lot done in only a few hours. Tomorrow the sink is being removed and the washing machine & dryer are being moved so he can open the wall and move the pipes. After he’s done they’ll no longer stick out a few inches so I can put a door or curtain in front of them.
