I really wanted to title this post “Kitchen Tetris,” but I didn’t think it would show up as well in search results.
You have two basic choices when you go into a reno: work with what you got or tear it all out. In our case, we know we have asbestos as our insulation in our walls, so tear it all out is not really an option unless we’re willing to pay huge $$ to have it removed. Also, I feel that if you’re buying a character house that is in decent condition, part of why you buy it is to retain the character. At least, that’s my philosophy.
