Whew! What a long journey it was!
Tearing out, tearing down.. What a process. Multiple calls to the contractor. We actually got an estimate from the contract a year before we started. Couldn't get a loan for the amount needed...no money for a down payment...bad economy...blah, blah, blah...and we wait.
Dave Ramsey and a year later...we are ready. We call the contractor and wait. We meet with the designer and wait. We receive a quote and plan, but adjustments need to be made and we wait. Adjustments are made and we wait for delivery. All the time, the contractors are finishing the doors, windows, and siding, now they are waiting for the windows to go in. Delivery is made and one of the cabinets is damaged and we wait. A week more of waiting (cabinets out, everything piled in the dining room and den of my little house). The contractor has other "priority" jobs and we wait. A very unhappy camper, I am. "Wait, I say, on the Lord," has never been an easy commandment for me.
Waiting...5 months later...the finished project! Enjoy the process.
|Old Hood will be replaced with Microwave with carcoal filter. The exhaust pipe will be torn out.|
|How does one accumulate so much junk in one small kitchen space!|
What a Mess!
|No Kitchen water, cabinets, stove or frig for 4 more weeks!|
|AFTER! I feel like I'm in my beach kitchen!|
|Not finished yet, I spray painted my star brown so that it would flow into the color scheme of my den. (Pictures later) I also painted the black cabinet and dining room table antique white. Still a work in progress, but...it's worth the wait.|
