Every day our kitchen is coming together more and more. It's been awesome! We were kind of at a standstill as we needed the door in before we could really progress. So we made a day trip to Calgary to pick up the door (and countertops!!), which meant we could start ripping down the wall guts (drywall, vapour barrier and insulation) as we were a step closer to being able to redo the walls now that the door was where it should be.
So the door got installed and for a day we shall have "French doors".... Sort of! The new door is an outswing and the other one is an inswing, and our neighbours are probably scratching their heads wondering what we are doing with two mismatched doors! But it's day by day here. That inswing door will soon be gone, and we can begin patching the hole in the wall and insulate. We went with Roxul insulation, since we have 2x4 exterior walls, and we can get R14 out of that stuff. Definitely better than the 2" itchy insulation we had!
When you do it all yourself, it feels like much more of an accomplishment. At the end of the day, you can look back and see what all you've done!
