This remodel has consumed our lives lately, and my over-riding thought throughout the process has been, ‘How do families with little kids remodel their kitchens?!’ I can’t even imagine…
A few “before” photos always add to the drama:
The first thing we had to do this weekend was empty the fridge so we could move it across the kitchen to a wall we didn’t need to disturb yet. I had help.
Once it was empty and moved across the room, I took some photos for my future posting to Craigslist to sell the thing. Anyone want a fridge?
My dear sister-in-law, who came to visit for the weekend, helped out by covering all the furniture in the nearby living room…
… to protect it from what was to come.
We decided to, um… stay out of Tom’s way by heading to the mall for a few hours. Nice of us, huh?
When we left, there was still a wall.
We came home to this dramatic undertaking:
And NOW look at the place!
(That low wall is where our bar-height counter will be.)
I love the completely new open feeling!
On the list for today is installation of a new, bigger window. Stand by for that saga!
