Preparing for Home Remodel

We’ve talked about it for a year.  We’ve waffled on flooring choices, color choices, cabinets, and more.

By this time next week, we should be elbow deep in our home remodel.

First, I moved all the groceries onto the shelves in the laundry room.   Then, we spent some time unloading these cabinets…

Then Hubs spent some time pulling up these baseboards…

Tomorrow we are going to order this hardwood Kempas flooring (we are getting rid of the carpet in the whole house)…

I am nervous, and excited…

Did I mention we are taking out part of this wall next week?

The wall separates the kitchen and living room.  We are leaving enough wall for the refrigerator and a 24 inch wide pantry height cabinet.  The rest is going bye-bye.

Oh, and we’re getting rid of this door…

This should be interesting, with two preschoolers afoot.

Your prayers are appreciated.  Smile

  45. Good luck on the project. Considering this was posted a few weeks ago, you should be knee deep in the project if not done yet. I will have to go browse your blog to see how you are doing. This seems like quite a task. I wonder if it is the two of you doing it or if you have hired help?
