It's Bedlam at our house at the moment. Number one son decided to buy us a second hand kitchen this week. We've done this before when I bought a kitchen for 300 Euros from a posh house in Schull a couple of years ago for the farm house next door.
Apparently people just buy houses and go for planning and demolish the house they have just purchased along with all the internal fixtures and fittings. They are virtually assured of getting planning because there is already a dwelling there.
So one day this week I came home from work and he'd knocked down the utility room wall. I barrowed the concrete blocks outside.
Number one son purchased our 'new' kitchen units from a posh house in Cork city. He got a friend to transport down it to West Cork in a van. Since then he's been busy fitting the units:
We're getting there. It just shows you don't need to spend thousands to have a nice kitchen.
I'm having a day off today so I have smashed up the old kitchen units with my sledge hammer and been Kangoing the kitchen tiles off the floor and using a lump hammer and bolster chisel to chisel up the tile cement. The Joy's of DIY!🤗
