An excellent point!
Well, I started by removing the baseboard molding, then disconnected and pulled the sink, then the counter. I pulled the supporting trim carefully so it can be re-used. Along those lines, I should mention that I am on essentially no budget. Everything I can possibly re-use will be.
Once everything was cleared out, I rolled back the carpet. Then my dad and I built an extension for the "stage" platform on the floor and re-secured the carpet.
As it turns out, the ice maker has a drain and produces about 2 gal of waste water per batch....Im going to have to figure out how to fit a U-trap low enough and still get it connected to the sink drainpipe...or go through the floor and run PVC accross the basement to the laundry drain...
First, the kegerator-
I set the small deep freeze in place and built a lid for it that is split into a front part (above the deep end) and a back part that will stay in place for the beer&co2 lines. I havent decided if I want to keep my co2 bottle under the sink for easy access or inside the freezer on the shelf in back, to keep things neat and tidy.
Anyhooo, the counter portion above the front section of the freezer will be removable but still tiled to match the rest of the counter and backsplash. I am using the old counter wood to build a matching "coffin" for the faucets in the back left corner.
Im on vacation right now but I will be jumping back into this when I get home. Here is one picture of me test-fitting the tile for the removable lid.
