A kitchen remodel (Part I)

Finally getting around to sharing the (photo) story of my aunt and uncle's kitchen remodel!  We had an extra-special Thanksgiving this year for many reasons -- however, selfishly, I also enjoyed the fact it was my first time enjoying the "new" space!

Let me start off with three photos of the "old kitchen" (to compare)
Living room looking into the old kitchen entrance
Entering old kitchen (looking to the right - doorway is to dining room)
From doorway of dining room looking into old
kitchen (doorway on the left goes to living room.
doorway straight ahead goes to rest of house)

Alright, now moving onto the gutting of the kitchen...
From doorway of dining room looking into old kitchen
(doorway on the left goes to living room. doorway
straight ahead goes to rest of house) Gutted kitchen

Closer look - gutted kitchen where living room doorway was.
Half wall to be removed for larger doorway and a raised counter to eat at.
Entering gutted kitchen (looking to the right - old doorway to
dining room was closed and a new wider archway created)



Continuing with the cleaned up walls of the gutted kitchen AND NEW FLOOR TILES!

Closer look - NEW AND IMPROVED where living room doorway was.
Half wall to be removed for larger doorway and a raised counter to eat at.
Standing in new dining room doorway looking
into gutted kitchen - the NEW TILE FLOOR is in!
Entering gutted kitchen (looking to the right - old doorway to dining room
was closed and a new wider archway created) NEW TILE FLOOR DONE!



Next post will have cabinet instillation day, new counters, new appliances, and lovely back splash/lights to finish off the remodeled kitchen!!

    1. Hey! Yes it does -- am so jealous it is not my kitchen -- however their house does now work as the best hostess/host house because of that kitchen : )

      Debating whether or not to split it into a three part post because there are lots of photos -- I think I shall end up making it only two though because I would be dying to see the results if I was reading another blog!

      So glad you and Cheeks are having a great time with family - not sure if I have been commenting but I am reading when I can!
