The new fridge is finally coming today and we took out the cabinet above the old fridge last weekend in preparation. The new fridge is taller and would come up above the bottom of the doors of the cabinet that was there (you can see it in the photos in the previous post). At some point in the future, we’ll be replacing the cabinets completely and we’ll take out the soffit too.
Edit: Well, the new fridge came today but the opening between the family room and the kitchen is too narrow for the new fridge. SO… we have to remove the casing around the opening this weekend to be able to move the fridge from the basement where it is currently residing in its box to its rightful place in the kitchen.
