Hides the ductwork tighter to the ceiling. Really lifts your eye up the wall.
Ductwork for range hood today. Drywall this afternoon!
Remember the soffit? Me neither.
Met with Chad from 1two5 last night to discuss next steps. Rough electrical today, some framing tomorrow and then our pal David will follow up with drywall. (Have I mentioned that he’s the best? Paints, too! Find him here.)
New range arrives Saturday. Can’t wait to see it in the space. The kitchen seems cavernous without our island! Looking forward to installing the new range and hood!
See that top row of cabinets? That soffit? They’re goners, folks. The 1two5 crew comes through today to begin phase two of our kitchen remodel, which involves taking out those cabinets and making some architectural changes, too.
Can’t believe what a difference our new pantry already makes on the opposite wall! Our kitchen will be completely transformed when all is said and done.
If you’re a homeowner, then you know how hard it can be to work on the projects you want to versus those you have to. We’ve been talking about making changes in our kitchen since before Charlie arrived. Now the time has come!
It’s hard to tell in this picture, but it’s something of a big, dumb space. It’s a long, wide rectangle with all the cabinets on one side and an open shelf from Ikea on the other. Not ideal.
So we’re working with our friends Chad and Nic at Postgreen to update it elegantly and affordably. I’ll post regular updates on the project, along with tips on how to survive a kitchen remodel without spending a month at restaurants. Get ready for some guerilla recipes out of crockpot, rotisserie and rice cookers, people!
