Home, Ugly, Home

Yes, house is in which the heart is. Your kitchen may be the heart of the house.

The house and kitchen may be the heart of the large, untidy remodeling project. We made the decision to update the kitchen at home with new cabinets, counter tops, and flooring. In the end were in internet marketing, we should also revise the traffic flow, meaning moving a few of the electrical and plumbing.

My hubby, Randy, made the decision we’d perform the remodeling ourselves instead of contract someone to get it done. He once built a whole house which is still standing after two decades, and so i trust he is able to manage the workload provided I supervise.

The reworking in our kitchen continues to be going ahead for 9 days so we have things torn out and scattered everywhere. I have quit on maintaining your house clean. Maintaining with parts of the home where we place the groceries now is difficult enough. We made the decision to consider things in small segments so Randy did not need to take time off work from his regular job to work on home. He is doing what he is able to during the night as well as on weekends. It’s slow but steady progress.

The kitchen at home has partly-colored walls-some using the old fresh paint color, some using the new fresh paint color and a few with new drywall that should be mudded or sanded. There’s more fresh paint around the old vinyl floor than there’s around the walls occasionally. Sanding dust embellishes every flat working surface in the home and every furniture piece has smiley faces and seeing stars etched by little fingers and signed through the grandchildren. Exactly what a thing of beauty!

The rest of the old base cabinets using their tired, worn-out faces are embarrassed by beautiful new wall cabinets we have installed. Peeling, cracked counter tops sit hazardously atop old base cabinets that needed to be drawn from the wall to permit access for tearing the old bulkhead and hanging the brand new upper cabinets Dishes are stacked all around the dining area. We also have small home appliances within the family room. The relaxation from the recently-put together IKEA cabinets have been in the spare bed room waiting their submit the road up.

Randy switched me loose to choose the brand new counter top, and so i visited the granite yard and acquired a sizable, pricey slice of rock. Using the template guy coming in a few days, we must obtain the terrazzo tile floor laid a few days ago therefore we can install the bottom cabinets for any proper measurement. Which means we must slowly move the sink and it is plumbing to another side from the dishwasher by Tuesday. Not a problem. Who needs sleep?
