The biggest project we are undertaking with the house so far has just started to get underweigh: The Kitchen.
We knew when buying this house that the kitchen would have to go, and we knew that to do that, we'd need to build an addition to house the kitchen and our home office. The current kitchen is going to be turned into a powder room and a mudroom. We have plans for what goes under the kitchen as well. We have BIG plans. Lots of plans.
Unfortunately, we don't have the time for all the big BIG plans we have, so we are starting with the kitchen, the most egregiously poor room in the house.
I'll post pictures of the current kitchen another time. You'll see what I am working with. For now, enjoy these pictures of the huge hole in our yard that will become the addition.
3 year old son LOVES the hole. Every day when we get home from work "Mommy, can I go look at the hole?"
"No, baby, you can't go down by the hole without mommy or daddy."
"But mommy, it's a HOLE."
"Yes, I understand that it's a big hole."
"I like holes."
This is how the conversation goes. Hopefully it will go differently tomorrow. We have a truckload of block, a bricklayer, and my father-in-law-contractor coming tomorrow.
I have to get to bed. They'll be here at 6:30 am.
