Our Journey

Kitchen Remodel Part 1

It seems as thought since we bought this house, almost 13 years ago, we have been working on this house. And a couple of months ago Hubby asked which room I want to do next. I replied, “Selfishly, the kitchen!” He was flabbergasted that I would even suggest the kitchen, especially since we want to add a 2nd bathroom, and we need to do some minor work in the bedrooms. With adding a bathroom we would have to move the utility room, which would mean adding a room to the house.

Fast forward a couple for months, I am out of town and hubby has to cook in the kitchen for the kiddos. Being as this is a rare occasion, me being away and hubby cooking, he was surprised with how dysfunctional our kitchen is. I came home and he started complaining explaining to me about why our kitchen doesn’t work. There is no counter space, it is to hot, on and on. Needless to say the kitchen was the next project we started!

Did I forget to tell you that the roof had started leaking??

That helped to start this project off to quick start!

And ended up with this:IMG_1031


WOW, look how big it looks!!!

Still a work in progress, but we no longer have a leaky roof, but the insulation and drywalls not up either. Between hubby working full time, going to school full time there isn’t much time left over. But we enjoy working together and hopefully my Christmas present will be a completed Kitchen!!


Do you have any home improvements going on? Would love to hear about them.

Wishing you many Blessings Rainbow
