No more wall between the dining and the kitchen! And notice the big opening cut in the back for the french door out to the back. Nice light! The two windows in the kitchen are being shortened to allow for base cabinets. In the middle of the windows goes the big range with (hopefully!) a herringbone tile pattern in subway. I know the world is sick of subway, but I never got a chance to use it in my own home and have always lusted after it. So subway it is! And notice that framed cutout next to the first door opening? That is my floor to ceiling hutch with brass chickenwire! I have no uppers, so we need the storage for sure. We are doing a good size island in the middle of the kitchen, and then a skinnier one between the dining and kitchen room. All in a painted grey.
Another shot of the opening. We found that the back porch was in really bad shape, so we are reframing. To the left is the new powder room which can't be seen in this photo. Then to the right, I want to create a type of mudroom setting behind that hutch wall. Maybe some lockers? What do you think?
The "new" addition to the master bedroom. We took one of those front bedrooms to add on to the small master, making for a nice tidy bathroom and walk in closet.
We've made some big strides on the house. Between the litter of racoons found in the eaves, to loads of rain and work, I've been slow on posting on the progress. But we are getting there!
