When we were searching for a house we saw so many where the kitchen was its own separate tiny room in the very back of the house that we thought we were just going to have to settle for that and be oh so sad. But then… we walked into this house where the kitchen was only separated by a silly little wall. With just a little easy demo (we hope) the space will become that more open and inclusive kitchen, living, & dining space that we weren’t ready to fully give up on.
So here we go!S*#& is flying over here as the demo is in full swing in both the kitchen and the living / family room. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when we were doing all this for the cabin (Is renovation addiction a real thing? I think I’ve got it).
See all of the progress so far and our plans after the jump.
For the kitchen, our immediate list of plans are: 1: open it up (as shown in progress above) 2: remove the tile floor 3: continue the hardwood into the kitchen 4: replace cabinets, sink, & countertops 5: new lightingSimultaneous to the kitchen demolition we are going to close up that small doorway that separates the family and living room and make a much bigger 6 foot opening so that the light passes through the house and again makes it more open. Below are the beginning stages. Plans for the living & family room are: 1: open up the wall 2: sand & refinish the wood floors 3: remove carpet in the family room and lay matching hardwood. 4. change the window to a patio door opening to the backyard 5. oh and paint away all the yellow
