Ok, a lot of the projects we’ve been working on thus far haven’t been the most sexy. That’s about to change.
The kitchen is about to be demolished and rebuilt to a big, beautiful thing. But first, we had to get all of our shit out of the kitchen, dining and rear room of the house. We have a lot of things.
I really, really, really am not going to miss this kitchen. Not the pink counter tops. Not the multi-colored cabinets. Not the cabinet shelves that were never secured properly. No, really none of it.
It’s been a while since we’ve posted, or frankly renovated, but that’s in the process of changing… now.
We’re working with some great contractors to help us finally do some of the big renovations we’ve been waiting on since we moved in 3 years ago including a full expansion and renovation of the kitchen and main floor, adding a half bath, refinishing the basement and a bunch of other projects along the way.
As demolition kicks off and lots of the unsexy parts of the project begin, let’s just take a moment and look at the kitchen design layout and imagine how great it’s going to be.
Look out for lots more to come soon!
When we first saw our house, we both looked at each other, eyes wide, after seeing the … less-than-flattering carpeting covering the entire living space. It wasn’t just that we hated carpet (which we mostly do) but the bright emerald and cranberry colors really got us. I mean, I love Christmas as much as the next guy, but I can do without it on my floors every day.
So we knew the FIRST thing we had to do once we got the keys was to get it out.
When you move into your own house for the first time, there’s really nothing like tearing, ripping and prying years of filth away. So within minutes of opening the door for the first time, that’s exactly what we did.
