brand spankin' new kitchen

It's a huge relief to have the kitchen done! The whole process started somewhere in March when we got quotes from contractors. Construction took about a month and finished right before the 4th of July. I now have more useful storage space, a better overall layout, appliances that work perfectly, a lot more light, clean cabinets inside and out, and the little island I always wanted.

The kitchen is mostly complete, but we still have to:

- stain threshold
- stain kitchen island
- paint walls, ceiling and trim
- replace back door


As far as issues go, there weren't many. The one thing I'm still trying to figure out is the garbage can situation. It doesn't fit under the sink and since we're short on space already, I didn't want to waste a whole cabinet on garbage (one of those pullout garbage and recycling cabinets). As far as problems go, this wasn't an HGTV worthy renovation.
