As the kitchen and bath renovations continue here at our mid-century ranch, I feel we have finally turned the corner and that the worst is behind us.
Upper cabinets and lighting are in:
The new ceiling tiles are installed along with the NOS chrome exhaust fan grill cover.
Flooring has been sealed and had 3 coats of wax added.
We still have plenty of work to do. Installing the lower cabinets. Appliances. Counter tops & back splash. Trim and baseboards. Painting. Staining. Bathroom vanity and toilet install. A bit more plumbing to be hired out. Touch ups and tweaking. The list is LONG.
Gutting your kitchen while continuing to live in your home is not for the faint of heart. Not having a sink or stove (for weeks on end) requires dish washing (and food prep) in the bathroom, utility room or basement sink. Not being able to use of your bathrooms is also a tad inconvenient.
Hopefully my next post will show a bit more “eye candy” instead of the mess!
