Kitchen Flip! (Week 9+10)

THE MAGIC HAPPENED! We Installed cabinets. It’s so crazy seeing the kitchen come together because I have been designing this kitchen for over a year and to see it starting to come in to place is truly overwhelming. Like how is this my kitchen? There is still so much to do but I’m feeling better about it’s progress.

Kitchen Flip! (Week 8)

So here we are, week 8. If I’m being honest, I thought we would be done by now. Thanks, HGTV for the false expectation.  I honestly can say I hate eating at this moment, I don’t want to eat out I don’t want to eat in. I’m just over it but we have to pack up all our patience and keep moving because this project won’t finish itself. We spent the holiday weekend working and getting shit done. Drywall ,done. Floor grinding, done.  Front brick, painted. Shed, painted. And now to finishing the mudding and the floor seal before we prime the walls. The room is starting to look like a kitchen again and putting it back together was harder than taking it apart.

Kitchen Flip! (Week 6+7)

We have made such great strides in the past two weeks. All new Electrical (Thanks dad!) Gas, and Water all hooked up in the new location and ready to rock and roll. We have removed the old kitchen, built a beam for the ceiling, filled the holes in the floor, got cabinets delivered, cried, we back to pick another slab for the countertop because the one we picked must be made of dinosaur bones and the tears of nuns for the price they told us and passed 3 out of our 4 inspections (the last one is Tuesday) So here we are! Getting ready for the long weekend of more work!
