imageAs referenced in our fridge post,  we needed to switch around our kitchen layout a bit. The house’s back stairs turned where you see the blue steps end and went into the kitchen. In place of this hole, was the refrigerator, which meant a long walk whenever you needed something cold. The cool thing in this demo was tearing into the stair walls, and finding evidence that the stairs used to also turn right and go into what used to be Dr. John Hatton’s office. Once we got the tear out done, we framed the wall behind the new in-kitchen (fancy!) refrigerator, and started the stair build. We’d like to add stair drawers like the ones here, but at least for now, we have usable stair treads. Drywall is up next!
