Kitchen Remodeling

During our drive back from holiday family visiting, we discussed plans for remodeling our kitchen. Well, not so much remodeling as completely gutting and replacing. We live in an old house (built in 1960) with a kitchen that was "updated" in 1992. I think that means they put in new appliances, countertops, and linoleum then. It has been functional, but it's so small that it's hard and unsatisfying to use. Right next to the kitchen is an enourmous dining room that has a lot of wasted space. So, you see where this is going.

We've applied for and received a home equity loan, so we're off to the races! We've had the doors measured so we can replace the old sliding glass door with French doors. We've identified most of the appliances that we want to use, and those dimensions will drive the final touches on the layout of the kitchen. Then we start tearing things out and building new cabinets, etc. It's very exciting!

Wow, how fun! Sounds like an adventure. I just hope you have an outdoor grill you can cook on or camping stove so you can still eat when your kitchen is demolished. :)
