What? An actual update on the house?
Remember when I said I would share progress? Well I underestimated how crazy life would be with two kids… a new house… a puppy… and a new job. So reality hit me hard. But now we are starting to get back into the swing of things and I thought I would share an update…
So we started here with a very basic floor plan and the kitchen was closed off from the living area. It also was closed off on the side which created a narrow hallway … so we removed all those walls to create a completely open space… and it changed everything.
So here we are before…
We decided to open this wall a bit as well… which made a HUGE difference as well. Crazy what just a few inches does!
A big GIANT mess!
And here is a very dusty… VERY DUSTY photo once things were cleaned up a bit… Two walls knocked out
And here are some progress photos. We still have some work to do… we still have a final coat of paint to put on the cabinets…. some caulking around that moulding… Trim out that Subway tile… Update the lights… put in a coffee bar. Put together the rest of the stools for the island. Paint the ceiling… add hardware… but even with so much left to do… It has come such a long way
These countertops…. worth every minute of stress… they turned out perfect. And seriously easy on the bank account.
So here is a little side by side for fun….
And another view…
So there we have it… Progress from where we stand. SO much left to do. It’s the kitchen project that is never ending. But it’s rather encouraging looking back at where we started and where we are now.
So this week we are hoping to finish up the cabinets get the final doors on… paint the moulding. Caulk.. and add hardware. Then eventually get someone in here to re-evaluate that lighting situation we have going on. What do you think so far?
