Goodbye hood...

...hello water heater.

When we bought the house the kitchen was "blessed" with a quite nasty fake antique oven hood.

Add one bloke with a wrecking bar,

and sooner (rather than later) you have a clear, if extremely grotty, wall so you can start insulating.

In the meantime, the plumber has been hard at work, and although it isn't yet plugged in, we have a ballon de chauffe-eau. In addition to that we have the plumbing for the upstairs toilet, and the pipes and drains for the shower and handbasin.

Today the temperature is supposed to reach 28°C. That is very hot for this time of year, so I am assuming we will get the hot water installed and running just in time to start taking cooling showers.

The kitchen looks much bigger without that hood.

Simon said...

Jean - absolutely, but not only bigger, a more sensible shape as well.

I couldn't help but notice the empty red wine bottle.... thirsty work renovating, eh?

Simon said...

Andres - demolition is a one bottle job. Only because have to stop the dust irritating your throat, of course

Have to agree, the kitchen is much better without that "hood."

Let me guess ... Was the water heater the mysterious heavy object you bought the other day and which required renting a truck and three people to unload ???

Simon said...

ladybird. No - the water heater wasn't the mystery item, but I AM impressed you remembered! The mystery item will make an appearance next month (maybe, if we get that far that soon!)

I never would have guessed that the hood was purely decorative (term used loosely)!
