kitchen progress

I know I haven't even shared the rest of the house with you, but I'm so flipping excited about the kitchen that I cannot wait any longer!

Here's the before...ugh.
The kitchen started off as 12x12 room that had 3 door ways and one wall of cabinets. That door opening (on left of below pic) used to go through to the living room but we opened up the other door way leading in to it so we could have more room for cabinets and appliances.


It was two rooms just a short while ago. The door way pictured below is the same spot the above picture was taken from. Matt and I did most of the demo. We did have lots of help from our friend Matt too. This closet was the only closet in the entire house. We did use this room as our bedroom when we first moved in but it was soon turned into our office since it's in the front of the house.


 Here's the view from the other side of the room above. That chimney there with the brick has had to stay as it's not a fireplace chimney but it does have vents for other needed things (ie the furnace) running through it. I was a little disappointed about that but we did get our hopes up when we saw the brick. But my hopes were dashed when the previous owners put plaster directly on the other sides of it. And that stuff was not coming off with out ruining the brick.


There is the bigger opening into the living room. It's covered up to keep the dust and dirt out of the new side. You also get an awesome view of nasty wallpaper too! We ended up taking the plaster and lath off of all the walls and totally redrywalling the whole space.


And what a difference that makes! We widened the other entry too. And installed new tile, thanks again to our friend Matt and his wife Jenn!


I am so thankful for willing friends and a clean kitchen! 
I will have more updates and details soon!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several
e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can
remove people from that service? Thanks a lot!

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about
switching to another platform. I have heard good
things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all
my wordpress content into it? Any help would be
really appreciated!
