When Jon & I bought our new house, we knew we needed to redo the kitchen. We thought maybe we’d live here for a while, get some ideas and then renovate sometime next year.
Well, that all changed very quickly. The kitchen was ugly, but I can live with ugly. What I can’t live with is dysfunctional. I love to cook and it was nearly impossible to do. Our stove was next to a wall, so I could only use 2 burners at a time. With only 3 cabinets we had NO storage space and even less counter top space for food prep. It was a nightmare. See exhibits A & B.

Less than a month after moving in and we had already ordered new cabinets and interviewed contractors. And less than 4 months after moving in, we had a brand new kitchen.

To say I’m happy with the final product is an understatement. Cooking is a pleasure in here! And, not only is it just what I wanted, it’s also really made our house feel like a home.
