The long-awaited renovation of our Kauai Aadheenam's kitchen facility began early this week. The monks moved the stove and sinks completely out to the back pantry area. Then John Anderson and his team came in and completely gutted and cleaned out the entire old kitchen room. Much of the wood and unmentionable material behind the walls was is over 50 years old. After several days of very hard work, jack hammering cement risers, replacing rotten wall studs and cleaning, cleaning, cleaning -- the team is now in the process of putting the kitchen back together, starting with a fresh new plywood ceiling that was covered with wall board.
