We just returned from visiting Dear Husband’s parents. When we got home, this is what we found: progress!
The guys from Hunter Reising Design & Build were busy while we were gone. They took down the upper cabinets. I can’t believe how much bigger and more open the kitchen feels without walls of cabinets surrounding us.
Then…the pantry! The piece de resistance! The pantry!
I am so excited! I can’t wait to see the next steps.
In the meantime, my job is to box up all the food and other stuff that is currently residing on my dining room table (all the stuff taken out of the upper cabinets) and set up a temporary kitchenette on my dining room buffet. Several people told me the best thing they did during their kitchen renovation was to set up a mini-kitchen somewhere else. So, we are setting it up on our dining room buffet – our coffee maker (a must!), the toaster oven, and our crock pot. Between those and the grill outside, we should be able to eat relatively well during the time our kitchen is a mess. Of course, if I don’t box up all the stuff on the table, we’ll be eating on the floor.
