Remodel, Part 24: Phase 1 Done, Phase 2 Starting
WHEW! It’s been nearly two-and-a-half months, but our remodel Phase 1 is now D-O-N-E! Well, Super Brad came and collected the balance due, so it must be done. This isn’t from tonight… but I HAVE to post it, right??!?!?
Oh, Hi, Brent! I caught you working… Brad’s hiding and you’re working… NOW you have your proof!
Brad, I told you hiding wouldn’t do you any good… you’d think after two-and-a-half months you’d know better!
I warned you…
OH… sorry! I digressed! Back to the subject at hand… the remodel…
The kitchen, family room and powder room are done!!! OK… 99.999% done… there a few minor things with the floor that still need to be addressed, but WHEW!
I don’t have a bunch of pictures because Phase 2 (dining room and living room [future office]) have “barfed” (stuff) all over the kitchen peninsula and family room.
Here’s a quick picture of the kitchen, well the food preparation area…
…and here’s the powder room… (we still need to get toilet paper and towel holders)
I forgot to get pictures of the dining room before they started, but it looks much like the living room (soon to be office). We almost never used the living room for anything other than a mini-workout area (which admittedly didn’t get used like it should). So we decided to make it into an office.
Here’s what the living room looks like now… (well, after we removed the furniture)
It should take them a couple more days to finish and then Phase 2 will be done! Seriously? It could be done this week?!?!? (I’ll believe it when I see it!) Then it’s time to start putting things back together. UGH! Well, not all of it… we’re considering a Phase 3… Unless I have myself committed! I went into a bit of shock when I got the estimate… still recovering… need to see if we can afford it… comeback and see if we go through with it… 😉
Do you have a room that you don’t use much? Have you thought about changing it’s purpose? If so, which room and what did you do with it or would like to do with it?

Don’t have yourself committed! But seriously… if you hardly used the living room… where do you watch tv, hang out, etc?
We watch TV and hang out in the family room which is attached to the kitchen. It’s like a “great room”. Our central “hub” is kitchen/family room area.
That’s BEAUTIFUL. The kitchen I mean. As for Brad…you’re like the Paparazzi. Are you looking at a career change? 😉
Thanks, Beth. I miss you!!!!! When’re you coming back to town?
As for Brad… yep… I’m the Remodel Paparazzi. All the guys know they’re not safe from me with my camera nearby… I even have used my iPhone. Maybe I should do a career change. I have taken over 560 photos since this started… and we’re NOT done! 😀
the kitchen is gorgeous! i love repurposing rooms for things you’ll actually use. can’t wait to see the finished phase 2!
Thank, Emily! I am soooo excited to have an office. I’m also going to use the room for my photography post-shoot work and also finally have space to work on my scrapbooks (which I haven’t done in FOUR years!). 😉
Everything is beautiful, I’m glad you have your kitchen back. See – mold is good for some things 😉
Thanks, Kim!! I will have you over when it’s all over. I still need to get back to my Baby Steps… tossing crap out as I unpack (yeppers, packed stuff I should have tossed… didn’t have time). Then have to throw stuff out before Phase 3! UGH…
I’m thinking you are quite the punster! ” Back to the subject at hand… ” AT HAND with Brad’s hand just above that line!
LOL!! I didn’t catch that! 😀
Okay, kitchen and the family room looked great and the powder room. What is phase three going to possibly be?????? Please tell. : )
Oh… if I told then that would ruin the surprise?! 😛
