Progress on the kitchen has been slow. We've been busy with work, travel and the holidays, but mostly we've just been lazy and the kitchen hasn't been a priority. Now that the house has heat the pressure to get the job done is off. But we did manage to finish the kitchen which means we're cooking and actually inviting people over for dinner.
Before - Even if you look past the 70's finish materials the kitchen was too small at 8x'9'.
After- Stealing space from the bathroom and adding a cantilevered addition nearly doubled the square footage.
After - The new open floor plan makes all the rooms seem larger and has made the kitchen the hub of the house.
After - Moving the stairwell freed up space for a table without blocking the basement stairs. Not that we ever eat at the dining room table now that we have the breakfast bar.
