Kitchen Upgrade: Things are moving quickly!

Goodbye 1967 and hello 2014!  My dad has been making great progress on renovating the kitchen.  And did I mention, he’s doing all the work himself?  He’s so handy.  After we finalized the new kitchen layout, he didn’t waste anytime getting to work.   So here are a couple of pictures of where we are now:

The upper and lower cabinets are mostly installed.  The new fridge is even in place.

The sink is on order and the countertops are in place, but not fully installed.

Goodbye yellowing stick-on tiles.  Hello beautiful polished tiles.  Though due to the construction they're a little dirty looking in this picture.

Yikes! Are those the inner workings of ‘boob’ lights I see? Hmmm… must talk to dad about those…

Things are really coming along nicely.  Among the things left to do are:

  • Install the sinks/faucet
  • Install the hood vent/fan
  • Select and install the backsplash
  • Select and mount the cabinet hardware
  • Hook up the dishwasher
  • Paint trim
  • Install transition strips for flooring
  • And talk dad out of those crappy lights…

A part of me is a little sad that it’s not the same kitchen from my childhood, but time marches on.   I’m excited to see it all coming together and how more spacious and big the kitchen now feels.  Can’t wait to style the room soon!
