Documenting our Remodel

Posted by Andrew.K (My Page) on

Although this is my first official post, I have been lurking around this forum since deciding to remodel our kitchen last December. The advice given and opinions offered here have been a great help. Our remodel is now underway, and I thought folks thinking of embarking on a remodel might find it helpful to follow along. I plan to update the site regularly, in diary fashion. The link is below.

RE: Documenting our Remodel

Okay, I'm now all caught up and waiting for more! :)

I like that you included your expected budget - hope you come close to that number...

Good luck the rest of the way!

RE: Documenting our Remodel

This is going to be fun to follow!

RE: Documenting our Remodel

Congratulations and good luck as you embark on this journey! Is there a layout or plan available?

I noticed you didn't mention lighting in your budget or in your description. I would recommend that you take full advantage of the fact that the walls and ceiling are now open and get better lighting in place. All I see is an overhead fixture and the hood -- if you haven't planned so already, I would get wiring drops for some undercounter lighting and consider some task lighting on that island.

RE: Documenting our Remodel

Thanks, gooster. Yes, we have a layout that I will try to scan and post. Truth be told, we have not given much thought about lighting, but you are absolutely right. We'll bring it up with our electrician tomorrow.

ok - the suspense is killing me. I'll be looking forward to this read every evening!!! Do you have an ETA?
