It was a good temporary fix but wasn't enough to stave off a complete makeover for very long.
Here's the story in pictures of our remodel:
Jim Larson, our kitchen designer at Europe Construction doesn't need a fake beard when he works as a Santa during the holidays.
First, the cabinets were delivered
Then the demo started
Since there was no room in the house or the garage to store everything, it was put outside under tents. Good thing the weather cooperated.
The new floor looks great, but some of the drywall that used to be behind the sink was pretty nasty, so it was replaced.
New overhead lighting with the kitchen and dining room on separate dimmers. I replaced all of the incandescent bulbs with dimmable LED's.
Thanks to Sergiy, Paul, Andre, Vassily and several others at Europe Construction for doing a wonderful job.
