the way it used to be...

Here is the beginning of my dream kitchen
....12 years ago...
This is what we bought.
(read all about our Home Sweet Home here)
The little room was the original pantry
and the only existing cabinets .
The bigger room was empty except for this china cabinet.
It became the model for the new cabinets.

Family-style remodeling

We gutted, insulated, wired, and sheetrocked,
added new cabinets
and oak floors.






Oh, what good times we had...
We dreamed, we worked, we learned new skills ,
and we made memories .
Tomorrow I will show you more.
It really is my *dream* kitchen.

I so admire people who remodel and come out on the other side in one piece. Can't wait to see it.

What a family project it has been.
The room had wonderful light, high ceilings and that cupboard, fantastic.
I can hardly wait to see the finished room.

What a wonderful family restoration project, taking a house and turning it lovingly into a home. I look forward to seeing more pictures.
