Holy mother of god! This remodel is really happening...

...and I think these photos prove it. Just when I've gotten used to the dirt and dust and mess and disruption and my whining (I know it hasn't been pretty), they kick it into gear and check this out. It really is happening now. I give you, the kitchen with cabinets...

Remember no surface or counters are in yet, but hey! There's an island! And it's not just a spot marked off with tape on the floor. I'm pinching myself with disbelief.
So here's looking the other direction from the same area, these windows used to be in the little nook, which is now open to the whole room...

And the upstairs bathroom you ask? Yes, it even has a floor!

And the shower, the sweet sweet shower...
oh sweet shower to be
It even has a bench:

Oh I can taste the end people. It's on the horizon. I give it one more month and hopefully it's done. And you know what else? We had sunshine this past week. Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh. My winter of dark renovation may be coming to an end.

These look like pictures from a magazine. Absolutely beautiful. We will begin tiling our bath this weekend and I am pretty sure our DIY outcome will not be half as fabulous. I am so jealous of your kitchen and bath. Well, jealous of you and AdRi, not the actual rooms...

Everything looks amazing so far! Especially that shower!

I'll probably redo my kitchen in the fall. Where did you get your kitchen cabinets?

Trop said...

Wow! I'm so happy for you!

That's nice and all, but where are the pics of the guest room I'll be staying in when I visit Portland?

Zoe said...

Oh, I love it. And I'm jealous that green works in your kitchen.

They really did kick into high gear. It actually is starting to look habitable again.

That is a ton of cabinet/storage space you have there. Can I have some?

rodger said...

I still have shower envy! Love the kitchen...what are your countertops?

SassyFemme said...

It looks awesome, Lelo. I can't imagine how excited you must be. I've really enjoyed riding along with the process. Thanks for sharing. :)
