Kitchenless


This is what my kitchen looked like...until 3 days ago. We'd been talking about renovating it for a while. I wasn't quite ready to go, but that's life with Courtney (DH). I always describe our relationship as him being the gas and me being the brakes, and this applies to most things: moving, money, home projects, etc.
The day this pic was taken (we posted it on Craigslist and did sell the cabinets and fridge) was probably the only time the kitchen was ever that clean. As you can see, there is minimal counter space. Except for the area next to the cook top, there's usually crap all over the place. I love to cook, but have hated to do so for the two years we've been in this house. Not just because of the lack of counter space, but because of the electric cook top. So as I write, the kitchen and 2 adjacent rooms are without a ceiling and most of the walls have been taken down. We are hoping to redo the whole thing for under $7K. I'll keep you posted.
I often brag about my husband's ability to fix anything. However, he has a shortcoming that I am going to try very hard to be patient about during this upheaval: poor time management skills. I pray to God that it won't take more than a month. Right now all we have is a fridge (a very nice GE Profile that I hear retails for upwards of $6K that we got for less than a third of that) our old double oven and microwave oven. No sink, no faucets.
I'm just going to pretend we're camping for now...
