2|05|15- after another week of failed promised. (Cabinets would be DONE on Jan 30th, Painting to begin on the 2nd…) Yet again, I bounded to the house with optimism, only to discover NOTHING had been done. I could tell people have been there, but only because things were more apart & strewn about… not because anything looked closer to completion.
01|06|2015 – While this kitchen project is really only a little over a month (well allegedly, I guess we wont know till it’s actually done), it feels like it’s taking FOREVER. But maybe I’m just antsy to spread out some cookies on those new counters! We’re still excited to see the changes each step of the way, and can’t wait for the cabinets to arrive soon. Things will take shape pretty quickly after that (I hope), and soon we’ll be ready to cook and enjoy the new space!
Here’s some progress pictures of the new space, with all drywall and electrical in. The higher ceilings, and no wall between the kitchen & dining room already make the space seem so much more open & brighter. I know it will still look different once the cabinets are all in, but overall already it’s a big improvement! We opted to keep our existing floor- so hopefully it will work with the new cabinet layout! *fingers crossed*
Still plenty of holes and strange things that remind me we have a ways to go before completion & a dust free home again. But at least they answer my question about our little house having any insulation on the exterior walls! There is it… (but it doesn’t explain why it’s so COLD in there!)
We also went hunting for countertops the day after Christmas. We’ll be going with a solid white quartz material for the main kitchen, and then doing a white/gray marble for the bar counter & backsplash. It was really neat to go marble shopping in the giant warehouse down the street! I just keep saying I wanted a big warehouse of my very own! haha. This pic is one slab we were ogling- it had these faint blue traces and I loved it. But still waffling since classic Carrera marble still calls to me too! Once the counters arrive we can take the real measurements and make the final selection!
