We are finally moving forward with construction. This will not be a "remodel," we're talking reconfiguration. Although the kitchen and the All Seasons room/sunroom were the main reasons we bought this house thirteen years ago, they were slightly dated even then.
But, since everything was in good shape, we had five small children, a dog, a cat, and other parts of the house to update... the kitchen was way down the list. For the last two years it has been on the top of the list and thanks to the economy there has been a huge delay in our plans...
But now we are ready. The plans go out next week to five different builders and then hopefully, we will move fast and furious because I am sooo ready!
This part of the kitchen will be a home office and a powder room.
Around the corner, to the left, will be our laundry room and mudroom.
The All Season room will be removed and in its place will be a larger and beautiful kitchen!
This part of the existing kitchen will be a butler's pantry leading into our dining room.
There will be a wall here.
We will miss the sun room. So beautiful during snowstorms or when autumn leaves swirled around in the wind. Even when the rain pelted the panes so loudly we couldn't hear each other... we loved it.
Many family gatherings were centered in this room. We hope to replicate it with the new kitchen- high ceilings, walls of windows and transoms should help us do that.
And I can't wait.
