Kitchen, bar, pantry, laundry remodel...

The next few entries will be a series of pictures of our house. We bought it in 2005 and began the remodel. It had not been updated since about the late 60's or early 70's. There was orange sherbert carpet, foil wall paper with silver...all kind of nasty. There were doors over nearly every opening in the house and the doorways were all very narrow. We opened up the kitchen to the great room and that will be the next installment. Enjoy.

Yucky Pantry Old lady desk area
Bar that spewed water when turned on
Dark and enclosed

I refused to cook on the stove. The tiles were literally glued to the top of the formica top and the microwave was cut into the wall with a shelf in the garage it sat on. YUCK!


New bar!

Laundry and 1/2 bath off the kitchen

This is where the yuck microwave and tiles were


Nice new pantry...it has a door I just forgot to close it. It has frosted glass on it.
All new and light. The wood is knotty alder, waxed and very smooth. The toe-kicks are extra drawers for storage. Excellent idea. We had an awesome architect but I got to choose the tiles and colors throughout the house. I had a great time. This picture the refrigerator is head on. It is covered in the knotty alder. The cabinet tops are soapstone. We used the same around the fireplace (later).

Next will be the great room and library.
