The original picture from the listing

We'd like to do something like this

That old oak-laminated refrigerator died so we had to buy a new one. That accelerated the kitchen renovation. so the demo begins. The cabinets have been removed for the new refrigerator. The blue tape is where a combo oven/microwave unit will go.

The wall behind the refrigerators will be removed.

On the right, the blue tape on the edge of the countertop is where the cooktop and hood will go. The dishwasher will be moved to the left of the sink, where the blue tape is (under the dishsoap).

For now, just this section will be removed. Let's see how this open concept goes...
The other side...
We just may keep going to the corner.
The soffit will also have to go.
