    Our Kitchen

    Advertisements
    So this is before...



    And this is in the middle of construction...



    And it's still a work in progress...the last pic now has an island right about where the camera is.

    And DH left for OCS a month ago and I'm trying to work on it myself...current task is staining the cabinet doors. It's just so depressing to work on a house by yourself...no one to share in accomplishments or setbacks.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks! That 10 foot window in the front room helps!

    Thanks! That'll happen when you knock out walls and build new ones...it's soooooooooooo much work, though. After this house I want move-in ready

    With DH deploying so soon we realllly wanted move in as well...
    As fate would have it we fell in love with a foreclosure that had EVERYTHING on our "need" and "want" list

    It needs some serious TLC
    I'll share pics with you once it's done, maybe you can give us tips!

    Totally! Ours was a foreclosure as well...If you look at the first pics, you'll notice we're missing all appliances...we already owned a fridge so that was fine, and we got the stove/washer/dryer on craigslist for cheap, and the dishwasher we got much later for FREE from craigslist and it works great! it was from a rich person's house who wanted their appliances to match (i'm guessing SS)...We replaced the microwave during the remodel as the one that was still there was missing the door handle.

    Yeah, ours is missing appliances as well! It needs some work on the deck and some minor electrical things, new kitchen floor (it has stained linoleum)

    You've really opened it up and the window does help to brighten the room!

    Over half of our house was wired on ONE circuit...DH spent a good chunk of time fixing that...

    We have put in a 10 foot window, redid the gutters, and are working on the kitchen. Next stop is turning the half bath into a true master bath...I don't know if we'll have time for that, but DH is optimistic.
