Renovating For Fun


So, I've begun the kitchen renovations. Rain has hampered my outdoor efforts, so indoor it is. Can't waste the vacation time.

I've created a page to describe the first phase of out house renovations: the kitchen. Later there will be changes to the living and dining rooms and then the kids' bedrooms.

Kitchen Renovations 1 shows you the old floor plan and the new floor plan of the kitchen. It's not a huge renovation, but as I am doing it myself (with some help from my father) we have to keep it reasonable. DOing it myself also will save a ton of $$$ which can be better spent on decent materials.

Yeah. This time *I* am doing the work. :)

But Maggie is doing the finishing work, because I stink at that sort of thing, except for painting and staining. She's the drywall expert around here.

That rocks!

Too bad you can't bring back all those old doors. :-)

Some of the actual doors are still in the basement. :)

It had seven doors when we bought the house, which seemed to be too many for a kitchen. We eliminated two of them and moved one. Later we eliminated the mud room door and put in the twin doors to the great room. Now we will only have four doors, the fewest doors this kitchen has ever had. (Okay, 5 if you count the double doors as 2. :) )
