Kitchen remodel has finally begun!

We have been crazy busy the past week. I am sooooo excited that the kitchen/dining room remodel and expansion has finally taken off. They started at 8am sharp last Saturday and continued on Sunday. We are very lucky to have a close friend who is a contractor and is helping us out. We are doing a lot of the work our selves so the labor cost is minimal. We had the layout all done. I have been working with an amazing designer at Hope Depot and we spent two hours Saturday making changes till I thought it was perfect.....until Sunday when the walls went up and the subflooring and we discovered the back wall was only going to be 6 1/2 feet tall. Yikes!! The original contractor said it would be 7 1/2 feet and it gets higher from that point since it is going to be a cathedral ceiling. So of course I went in to panic mode when we started measuring and found that the cabinets would only be 8" from the counter top. I immediately got on the phone and called the designer and she fixed everything in about five minutes. Whew, that was close to a disaster as we thought we were going to have to tear everything apart and raise the roof. I will post some pics tomorrow. I got the paint and the glaze for the cabinets and will do a test tomorrow to see how it's going to turn out. Boy do I have a lot of painting to do, but I think putting a personal touch on the cabinets will make it very nice.

We also put up a privacy fence along side the pool and the gazebo. It looks awesome! I love, love, love it. Well, this is short, but I just wanted to give everyone a quick update. Stay tuned for pics tomorrow.

Have a great evening!
