OK, here’s the deal. I don’t really like the soffit boxes. In fact, I don’t know anyone who does, so I think it’s a good idea to get rid of those things. Plus, without the cabinets that cover the bar, they serve no purpose and make the space smaller. So I think it’s time to do some smashing.
So the soffits are basically constructed to be demolition proof. The framing is made from real 2×4’s that require some real cutting.
Smashing things makes this home-owner a happy dirty man.
