Kitchen Remodel Update – It’s Been Two Weeks Now

By JLP | October 3, 2007

Our kitchen remodel seems to be going quickly. The cabinets are all installed, the drywall is nearly all up, and the electrical stuff is all done. Today the plumber is running a gas line to the new fireplace and then it will be ready for drywall.

We ordered the range and microwave last week. The range should arrive in 2 or 3 weeks. My wife decided (I had nothing to do with the decision) to go with the brand new GE Café Series Duel-Fuel Range (info and pictures) and microwave to match. We’ll eventually change out our refrigerator and dishwasher so that everything matches but right now that’s not a priority.

Finally, the attached family room looks really good. They are building the built-in bookcases for us right now. By taking out the corner fireplace, we gained about six feet along that wall. Although it seems silly to move a fireplace, I think it was a good move. We’ll get a lot more enjoyment out of the new fireplace and it doesn’t take up nearly as much space!

I’ll try to post some more pictures later today.

    JLP, you have a pretty broad definition of “kitchen remodel!” Woodstoves are a great addition to a house. Our wood stove was installed a couple of weeks ago, just in time for the cold season. We’ve fired it up a few times and it quickly gets the house warm and toasty.

    Maybe renovation is a better word.

    No matter what I call it, I’m ready for it to be done!
