This past May, we packed up our entire kitchen, and carted off all the non-essentials to my mom's basement. The necessary items (mircowave, hot plate, toaster oven, food, and lots & lots of paper plates) were crammed into our office--the only available living space downstairs.
We decided to completely gut our old kitchen and start from scratch. Despite the fresh paint and new curtains, the floor was crooked, the cupboard doors didn't close properly, we had no ceiling (previous renovation), and it was always freezing cold in the winter.
Here's a look at this long and stressful journey, that has finally come to an end:
|cutting out the old crooked floor|
|view of the old cistern|
|new floor joists|
|updating the plumbing|
|fixing the rotten exterior wall|
|new subfloor and framed walls|
|light fixture installation|
And here are the "AFTER" pictures for a look at the completed kitchen:
