The remodel

So I found out today that the camp is buying a new dishwasher, stove, and microwave hood vent for our house!!!!!  This is so exciting, I've lived in a house with a dishwasher for about 1 second of my life so the fact that soon I will have a brand new one is enough but then I also get to experience a new oven and a microwave hood (which I've never used before either!) and I'm over the moon!!!!!

So if you can't tell we are having our kitchen remodeled, we moved into this house at the beginning of summer knowing that at the end of summer we were going to remodel the kitchen.  Before this house was a staff house it was the VIP cottage/nurses station so there wasn't really a need for a full kitchen.  When we moved in it only had a fridge, and a sink,  and a very small counter top with enough cupboard space to frustrate a leprechaun, and we brought our microwave.  Like I said we moved in knowing that we were going to get a new kitchen at the end of summer and it wasn't a big deal because it was summer and living at a youth camp with my husband as the food service manager we were always welcome at the dinning hall to eat and there were meals all summer long so no big deal.
Here are some pics of the house as a work in progress.

Right where Bobby is standing is where there use to be a wall, and on the left is our tiny tiny kitchen, jam packed, that's even with all of our dishes, pots, pans, tupperware, cooking utensils, and most of out canned goods packed away!

That is all of the counter space, and our sink, they have torn out some walls at this point, and our cabinets.

These are our new cabinets pretty close to where they are actually going to go.

Behind where the sink is where the new cabinets are is where the washer and dryer use to be.

This is how I kept Rylee out from underfoot, this is looking from the kitchen into the living room.

The new diswasher!

The new stove and microwave!

Getting close!  Just waiting on counter tops and flooring, and staining the cabinets and paint!

  1. I love camp living. I miss it. I think you need a new fridge because the white does not match the black...Just kidding. It looks great.
