Summer – 2016: We are still very much in the middle of our kitchen renovation, but here are a few of our favorite shots as well as a few before pictures at the end.
Still a work in progress, but we have a functioning kitchen after months of eating out.
Another magazine worthy shot save for the unfinished beadboard trim on the wall under Nanna Zelda
The newly installed upper glass doors are so beautiful!
The combination of the custom side panel with the bottom trim crafted from a 1×3 piece of poplar really frames the doors beautifully.
The interior cabinet lighting is just inside the door frame and wonderfully obscured by the texture in the glass.
Oh, the backsplash came out so beautifully!
Running water after 130 days of washing dishes in the bathroom sink. This is so much nicer!
The upper cabinets were not done yet, but it really does look like a kitchen now.
First load of dishes… And so quiet. At 44 decibels, I had a hard time hearing it running. This is Yoav’s first time having a dishwasher in the home as an adult, and only my second time.
Base cabinets are ready for countertop measurements!
The completed first phase of the beadboard installation. This is our sink wall and will be the foundation upon which the primary elements of our kitchen will be built.
OMG…. It is so beautiful! (Notice the white panel across the door to the hall on far right. This is to keep Fritz out of the kitchen, but it is also to keep mice out of the rest of the apartment as they still have access to the kitchen.
These are the materials we settled on in December of 2015, nearly all of them have stayed as planned in the renovation.
Our very un-glamorous kitchen as seen one morning in December 2015. The limitations of this 118.5″ space are very real and more complicated than they should be.
The kitchen when we first saw the apartment had clearly been thoughtlessly thrown together for use as a rental.
