And So it Begins

So work shall commence later this week. We signed a contract with our contractor. Not that work hasn't been happening in the last number of months.

Once we decided to redo the kitchen we brought in a designer that was recommended to us by our contractor. We hit it off immediately and we have been working with her on the redesign.

The scope of work includes:
  • Remove existing wall between kitchen and living room
  • Enlarge and replace existing kitchen window
  • Replace all counter tops, cabinets, and backsplashes
  • New kitchen lighting
  • Add a walk-in pantry
  • Replace all existing appliances
  • Replace kitchen flooring with oak to match living room
  • Reface living room fireplace and add gas fireplace insert
  • Remove raised hearth
  • Remove and relocate "decorative" air return (the hideous raised contraption by the front door)
These shots were taken soon after we purchased the house.
