Take it from someone who’s been through a renovation:  The planning part of a renovation is a lot more fun than the actual renovation.  Especially if you decide to stay put during the entire process.  I can deal with builders at my door at 7 each morning (they’re extremely punctual), I can deal with the noise, the constant digging, the removal of walls, roofs and ceilings, BUT… when they rip out your kitchen, things get real very quickly…

As the hour didn’t allow for any other beverages, I farewelled the kitchen with a cup of tea and a friend.  I know that you secretly think there’ll be lots of time to remove kitchen utensils to set up elsewhere.  THINK AGAIN!  These guys are pretty quick.  They demolished that entire kitchen, floor tiles included,  quicker than it took me to pack everything up.

Kitchen Demolition

Hard to imagine a brand new kitchen in this mess!  After months of planning, one can only hope that it will turn out the way we imagined.

Garage kitchen setup

Mmm, this is our best efforts at building a new kitchen – it’s our set-up in the garage for the next 6 weeks (possibly longer…).  As you can see, we have somewhere to sit and have dinner, we have a fridge, microwave, storage, but most importantly, we have wine… If you’d like any recipes for cooking in an electrical frying pan, please give me a call 🙂

Next week, I’ll show you the progress in the kitchen. If you’d like to see how we changed some of the other rooms in our house, follow the links below.
