Well, hello again. It has been a while! Yes, the kitchen has been lower on the totem pole these days with work back in full swing and vacations to take, but we are in the final push to complete the last steps!
Currently the doors and drawer fronts that Brent made are at the shop to be sprayed. He has also built the final 4 drawers and installed 2 of them.
After that, some caulking fixes, paint touch-ups, hanging our open shelving, installing the soft-close hardware on the cabinets we had ordered, and we should be able to call our kitchen done!
The mudroom is functional, but Brent still wants to build a custom organization solution and we do still have the glass door we may or may not install. We could also install trim above the cabinets...but we'll see :)
I cannot wait to take the official AFTER pictures. Living in our new kitchen has made a huge difference for our house. It is much more functional and just fun to be in. We refinanced in December, and I'm sure that almost-finished new kitchen had a lot to do with our assessed value going up! It feels really great to be almost done with such a monumental project that we did almost all of "our"selves (OK Brentselves). What to do this summer?? Perhaps convert an upstairs closet to a powder room? Muah ha ha ha.
