We have started a remodeling project that we have been thinking about for a couple of years. A few years ago I wanted to update our kitchen by getting some new countertops. countertops are just the beginning for this MAJOR project. On February 16th a hole was dug on the north end of our house. It will tie into our existing TV room where we will add a kitchenette and a bedroom and bath. On the main floor we are extending out our family room and to the west we are adding a music room. I will say that this is end of the house is Rick's dream........mine was the kitchen.
(Although I am certainly going to enjoy it too!) Our good friend Charlee is the contractor for the job. He has helped us through the years with other projects we've done. He built a false wall in our family room so this is where we lounge. A little dusty and uncomfortable but we're surviving.
The walls are up............

basement access will be nice

The roof and windows are in. The plumbers and electrician have been here for 3 days so things are coming along there. Charlee will be ripping out our kitchen within a couple of weeks and that's when the real fun starts. Hopefully he will have the kitchenette put together within a few days of tearing out the kitchen so that we don't have to go too long without one. I am really excited about this kitchen! We are extending into our 3rd garage for a little more space. We put the finishing touches on the design and chose the cabinetry just today. So many desicions!
It will be finished around the end of May!

  1. Oh my goodness this all sound WAY too familiar! It's been a year ago now that we tore into the house a little bit to make room for a larger laundry room for me. I was in heaven! But Matt had other plans....and that's when our major construction began, as well! So funny how something small-ish can turn into such a huge project. The house looks lovely and I can't wait to come and see it. It is so much fun watching the progress come along, so good job on taking pictures! Charlee did ours, too and did a fantastic job!
