Kitchen Renovations

Since we are not going anywhere this year we decided to spend our vacation money on some home upgrades. Back in May we had a new furnace and hot water tank installed.

This week we are having the kitchen cabinets and counter replaced and have bought a new stove. The reno started today and I'm hoping it doesn't take too long. You don't realize just how much you do in the kitchen until you no longer have one. We are washing dishes in the bathroom sink for God's sake. The fridge is in the dining room beside the dishwasher. The plumber's bill will be considerably less that we had anticipated as he wants to take all of our old cupboards to put in his basement. The electrician is due shortly and the cabinet maker will be coming at noon to remove the old cupboards and counter. Everything is dovetailing nicely so far.

A last look at our old kitchen:

Everything is going back into the exact same spot (fridge, stove, dishwasher) The lower cupboards will be drawers so I won't need to get down on all fours to peer into the abyss. When we were emptying the cupboards for the reno we found casserole dishes and pots, in the back, I didn't even recognize.

Oh, that'll be nice. Just what my sister is doing, too: no vacation but kitchen instead. But hers is very old and they need a new floor too so yours will go much, much, much faster. I look forward to seeing the new!

Best wishes for your beautiful redone kitchen! Like Teal, I know what you're going through, but may everything go as smoothly as possible.

Know exactly what you're going through. We gutted and remodeled our kitchen 5 years ago. The living room was full of boxes for two months. But it will look great at the end. You must post photo of finished kitchen, yes?

As nothing is being moved or shifted to a different spot we are hoping it will be all done by Friday night. I can't wait.
