Demolition Derbries

Last Saturday I did a bunch of demolition (I like to call it demo, but this makes Kyle upset for some reason) at my friend Melody's flip house. First of all, let me say that it was so much fun! I spent 6 hours pulling up carpet, baseboards, knocking down cabinets, tearing up linoleum and old tile floors, it was great! The only bad part was when I thought I had lost my wedding ring somewhere in the mess. . . and considering that we filled up an entire 40 yard dumpster I wasn't too hopeful that I would ever see it again (probably felt about like my grandmumz did when she realized her ring had been flushed down the toilet. . . although, wait, THEY FOUND THAT on the first attempt at going through the septic tank with a stick. . ..). Luckily it was in my other pocket. . . the one without a zipper. . . I can't believe that it didn't fall out. . . ANYWAY!
So I was in the kitchen and asked Mel what she was going to do with the old appliances. . .
"Do you want them?"
"...Ohmy goodness, are you serious!?!"

One moving truck and broken glass door later we have the results. . .
The best part was that my old stove quite literally started falling apart when I took it out. The top burners were already a disaster and as I moved it out the top came off as well as the handle! This new stove is such a blessing! The dishwasher is great too! It sits really low to the ground so you can get a lot more stuff inside, especially pots and pans. It is also one of those really quite dishwashers! Thanks, Melody!
