Kitchen Renovation: Part II

There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I can finally begin to see it!  We are in week four of our kitchen renovation!  Although it has been a bit of a challenge for me to live without my favorite room in the house, I have persevered and survived the insanity!  Be ready for lots of yummy recipes coming your way, once the kitchen is complete! So today, I thought I would share a photo update of the progress from the past few weeks…

The focus last week and this week has been flooring!  Merlin has enjoyed watching the construction process! Can you find her??

I love how the colors of the hickory change, with the natural lighting, throughout the day!

The flooring looks much darker from this perspective.

As of last week, all cabinets were installed, as well as the granite countertop.

I love the natural veins that run through the granite.  Being lovers of nature, we strive to bring the outside in, as much as possible!

We chose an induction cooktop. Induction cooking heats a cooking vessel by magnetic induction, instead of thermal conduction from a flame or electrical heating. Because of this, very rapid increases in temperatures are achieved!  So far, I am in love!!

The desk area is coming together nicely, as well!  Soon, I will be writing from this very spot!
There you have it!  The next update I share will be the final reveal!  Let’s cross our fingers and hope for the end of next week!  What have I learned from our remodeling projects, over the past two years…???  One word…PATIENCE!

P.S.  Skunk and her chicks are doing amazingly well!  And, we have another broody hen!  You can only imagine what this means…β™₯

  1. Love, love, love your beautiful new kitchen. We completely gutted our kitchen (almost 5 months ago) started from scratch and still not done!! Robin has made all the cabinets himself and I am so delighted with them. It’s great being right there, watching EVERY move! He listens to my ideals and me to his. We removed the flooring and replaced it with concrete πŸ™‚ LOVE IT! Whew – it’s been a test of my sanity (what little I have left)…..I CAN NOT WAIT for the revealing. Hopefully soooooon….

  2. It’s looking beautiful. Being without a kitchen is rough we have remodeled ours in the past a few times. Although I would love to do this one more time lol. I like granite but I love the look of soapstone I have never talked to anyone who had it so I have never done it lol.
