Kitchen Beginnings

She Says:

Okay.  This next room is a biggie... the kitchen.  Just like the bath, we are completely gutting this one.  But there is sooooo much more to do.  Here's what we started with:

This is the breakfast nook... currently the only dining area in the house.

 And here's the kitchen.  It's like a cave in there.  And just as scary.

This is one of the lovely holes in the floor that made buying this house so darn affordable!  As I've mentioned before, I think every single piece of plumbing in this house leaked at one time or another, creating soggy subfloors, riddled with holes.  This one is courtesy of the kitchen sink.  Not to be outdone, the dishwasher (which I dare not even open) sports a certain sponginess in the floor as well... it's only a matter of time before somebody falls right through it.

Here's our To Do list:
  • Pine board ceiling
  • Hardwood flooring
  • Garden window
  • Sliding glass door
  • Cabinetry
  • All new appliances
  • Granite countertops
  • Eat in island
  • Wine and coffee bar
  • Can and pendant lighting
  • All new wiring
  • All new plumbing
That's all.  Not much to do.  In the immortal words of The Money Pit, it should take about 2 weeks...

He says:

A kitchen has a lot of...things...going on in it.  Lots of very demanding dimensions with no room for error.  Lots of wiring, plumbing, gadgets.  This is going to be very complicated.  Sure, two weeks sounds about right!
