This is really just a rant. Wanting to express a huge pet peeve of mine that no one else cares about.
It seems like on every TV show featuring amateur remodeling projects features some big scene where the participants demolish a kitchen or bathroom with a sledge hammer. They just go in and start whanging away at everything in sight.
I know it probably makes for good TV, but it just seems so stupid to me. For one thing, in many cases it would have to be easier to just disassemble and remove everything than to knock it to shreds. For another, I’m always waiting for some dumazz to whack right into a 220V line or a gas line or something (talk about good TV).
Plus, if they just disassembled as much as possible and set it out by the curb instead of turning it into dumpster rubble, most of the pieces would probably disappear overnight. Old kitchen cabinets may not be stylish, but that hardly matters to a neighbor who’d be thrilled to use them for storage in their basement or garage.
Okay. I’m done.
