Kitchen progress

My sister Carolyn took down the first cabinet weeks ago. Now it's all cleared out.

I thought it would be hard to see something you spend so much money on torn apart, but it feels good. I'm so excited to make it better.
This is a rough sketch from Ikea of what it will look like. It's a similar layout to the old kitchen but the cooktop moved to the left and became a range. We didn't have to move plumbing or gas lines.

We think it will be another week before we can install the cabinets. First is drywall and paint.

This is a kitchen that we have always liked. Unfortunately it's a little bit cost prohibitive. We will be getting white cabinets but we hope to warm up the space with flooring and paint.

Egad, why has my reader let me down. It kept telling me that you had no updates and finally i decided to check for myself and voila!

Wow, you have made a ton of progress. The kitchen is going to rock.

Never thought about the shower thing, we just usually get a shower head to control that stuff.

I love the idea of the cabinet popping. i love celery.

It's fun to see the progress. Looking forward to seeing it all come together.
