Kitchen Remodel

Yikes!  After 6 and a half years of living with the kitchen of my nightmares (only one person at a time allowed.....can't open dishwasher if oven is open...not enough cabinet space....poor lighting)....I have taken the plunge.  A new kitchen. An Ikea kitchen at that!  Here's my "before" picture....all the useful space on the countertops being used, and a pretty hideous shade of yellow paint on the walls.

So in less than 3 full days, the wonderful crew from Michael Early Construction demolished the old kitchen and created this much more user friendly space, taking the sink out of the middle of the kitchen and putting it against the wall. (well, eventually a sink will be there...the counter tops will go in in a couple of weeks, then the sink and new appliances will be installed!).

I've never lived in a house while a remodel was taking place, and it's been a very humbling experience.

But I can't wait to share the photos of the finished kitchen....which might take a while, but watch this space!
