The million dollar question was “when will you’re kitchen be done?” As the saying goes, if we had a dime for every time someone asked us that, we’d probably be at Disney World right now.
Being a home owner, are you really ever finished with projects? Probably not. And, there is still some finishing touches yet to be done. But, if I don’t get these pictures up now, it may never happen. 🙂
We started this project in July. But we didn’t just remodel a kitchen, we put on a new roof, remodeled a kitchen, bathroom, and living room, plus painted and re-floored almost the entire main living space. And, my amazing husband did most of the work himself. Some projects were hired, and some we had help, but the majority of it was him. Aside from working on the house, he works a full time job, and was training for the Chicago marathon. All or nothing right?
Let’s start in the kitchen, that’s what ya’ll really want to see anyway.
Here’s what we started with…
and, wa lah!
I know, it’s amazing!
How about some close-ups?
This is intended to be a coat closet, however, we used it for a pantry since I didn’t have room in the cupboards for my food. The shot on the right is taken from the half bath directly across from it.
Again, taken from the half bath.
I used to have a built in desk here:
Another favorite feature… double wall oven! And I actually use them both.
Want to see the living room?
How we lived all summer…
You can see we tore out the built-ins and moved our desk to the right of the fire place.
Hopefully the mantle will be up before Christmas.
And, here’s a peek at the bathroom. But, it’s not finished yet, still need a mirror and maybe some window treatments.
Here’s the before.
