During: the same wall with the men hard at work. See the piece of ceiling that hasn't been sheet rocked yet? Roger and I singled-handedly put up the 12 foot piece of drywall. It almost squished me, twice.
After: I love, love, love the apron front sink and yes, I'm obsessed with red.
Before: The corner between the stove and the sink. We couldn't close the cupboard doors when our dinner plates were inside.
Before: We don't really know why the stove was free floating. How much do you love the duck border?
During: The men still hard at work. Note on the left, that was the only entrance into the kitchen.
After: The stove and the microwave were the only new appliances we bought when we remodeled.
Before: I didn't even get a good shot of the dining room. You can see the corner of the dryer. Yes the washer and dryer were in the dining room.
During: We removed all the drywall in preparation of having the wall removed. We moved the washer and dryer into a bedroom on the same floor. It's not the best solution, but it worked. This is where we kept the refrigerator while we were remodeling. It was great having to put shoes on to get the milk.
After: It made such a huge difference to have the wall removed. To the right is a little pantry that we have loved. Our dream is to install a bench in that right corner, it would give us a tiny bit more room.
Before: This is the wall opposite the sink. It's where the fridge was, again free standing. The entrance to the kitchen is out of the picture to the right.
During: It was Grant's excellent idea to put in a new entrance to the kitchen. It has made all the difference in the world.
After: Now we can see into the living room while we are in the kitchen. Before it was so hard to be cooking and have no idea what the kids were up to, now I can keep my eyeballs on them!
After: Both entrances. Our plan is to make a pantry with a door where the original kitchen entrance is, wouldn't that be swell?
After: This is where the fridge is now. We would like to replace the fridge and dishwasher, but they work fine, so no need to yet!
