Here's where we started. I married a man with a son who were living in a home that had never been updated. Just a couple of bachelors (one big, one little) with a sad, yellow kitchen.
|This is where we started. A small, square kitchen, portable dishwasher, wall between the kitchen and a dining area/family room. A very large coal stove and chimney that had to be removed. We kept the brick wall.|
|Stove and chimney removed but hole still in ceiling. Built-in bar with mirror tiles over (apparently to nicely reflect liquor bottles?|
|We kept the existing window over the sink.|
|The wall between the kitchen and FR (with cook top and built-in oven came down.)|
|Stove & microhood are where the old fridge was. A door to the backyard was closed up and the fridge takes its place.|
|Maple glass door cabinets and built-in desk replaced a bare wall and portable dishwasher. The desk was created by using upper cabinets as lower to allow room for knee space under the countertop of the desk.|
