We have formally been out of our dwelling and conducting our kitchen renovation for four months now. In this time, the amount of development that our GC has produced is fairly remarkable. Our contractor (who we utilised for my mom’s kitchen area – which you can examine all about in this article, if you’d like), claimed it would choose 5-6 weeks to total. I was admittedly skeptical, but it’s wanting like we’re more or fewer suitable on monitor. Design and kitchen area renovations nearly by no means take place this way, as I’m absolutely sure you know, so I’m thrilled.

Hardwood flooring is heading in as we discuss, our floors have been levelled, and the plumbing, HVAC, and electrical is complete. Even though everything is on the ideal keep track of, it is not to say that our kitchen renovation did not occur with its honest share of surprises along the way.

You may recall me mentioning that our kitchen area utilised to slope significantly. So a great deal so that I utilised to have to strategically put my eggs or they would roll of the counter, hah. So we understood anything was heading on with the just one back corner of our home.

This means there is no basement down below, so this was brand name new details. I’m unquestionably confident it is where the ghosts cling out. I suggest, our dwelling is 130 years old following all. It was a very interesting discovery and however the room is at the moment unaccessible, we do have the potential to open up it up from under. It is anything we may possibly investigate more just one working day. A complete new room! Who understood! But also, I have so several questions. Why is it boarded up? Do I even want to know… I’m also now curious as to what else our home is hiding.
