House Renovation Update

Hey, hey!!

Things have been busy at our house! First of all, let me just say…not having a kitchen or laundry room for nine weeks isn’t for the faint of heart. BUT, it’s going to be worth it. We have been living on top of each other and a bunch of “stuff” for too long. Thank the Lord that it’s Spring and the boys can play outside most days otherwise we would really be going bonkers.

We are getting *close* to the end of this project and hopefully everything will be done in the next 2-3 weeks. Our butcher block vendor totally flaked on the lead time of our laundry room countertops, but pretty much everything else should be about done in a couple of weeks. I’m already starting to internally celebrate because I am SO READY to have my house back! Anything baked will be the first thing I will cook. Ha! And the crockpot will be retiring for a couple of weeks at least. *wink

House Reno 1

Shiplap + hardwood floors.

The floors are JUST finished today…photos to come. The last coat of poly is drying now. Super excited about that!

House Reno 3

Cabinets are partially installed. The cabinet guy is supposed to come tomorrow to finish putting on doors and drawers. Yay!

House Reno 4

This is going to be my work space in the laundry room. We crammed a ton in this small space – lots more storage, a work space for me, washer/dryer/sink and a mud room locker area.

House Reno 2

I am totally in love with the laundry room floor. Seriously.

Kitchen 1

The kitchen island is a reclaimed wood table top. Our contractor knew what I was looking for in the island top and he found a table with a broken leg at a local shop for a good price. They modified the top to fit the island. It’s perfect and extremely kid friendly. 🙂

Also…the farm sink. #swoon

The beautiful granite countertops are currently covered with brown paper while they finish the backsplash, but they are everything I looked for in countertops. And that faucet…amazing.
