Kitchen update


New here, figured I'd show off a little project the wife and I tackled a while back. Overall, it took us 8 days to complete. We kept it simple by doing minimal electrical movement and keeping the plumbing in the same spot so we wouldn't have to open the walls up much.

Kitchen before:




And here is the kitchen afterward:

Kitchen update


Thanks, we've done larger projects but this is the main one we have photos of. We didn't really want to mess with the walls too much as we were trying to keep the cost down and trying to complete it fairly quickly as it was done right before Thanksgiving. We are considering a porch addition for our next big project but I've got to get past the initial fear of starting it. It should be fairly straightforward, but we always have to plan for something unknown to rear its ugly head. When removing paneling in one of the rooms years ago we discovered the previous owners had taken out a wall, but didn't care to redo the wall where they ripped it out. They just covered it with the paneling and hid the upper sections of the wall that came down from the ceiling by installing a drop ceiling. We took that down to the studs, redid all the old wiring, and put a wall back up in a slightly different location giving us another bedroom and walk in hall closet.
