These cabinets (at top) needed to come out, giving me much more space to work with.
The cabinets were wired with four 120vAC plugs, using 14/2 wire. I never did figure out where the AC connection was to supply these plugs.
The plugs were wired to two 20 amp circuit breakers in this box. I had to tear out all the 14/2 wire and this box. At least the existence of this box saved me a little money later on.
The left hand cabinets were relatively easy to saw out-just cut at the tops and half the work was done.
This hard wood in the bottoms gave me some trouble-I had to buy a special saw blade to chop it out.
This is what was in the end caps. I had to have my uncle saw the caps out due to their position next to the green steel reinforcing bars.
