I took these first two photos in September of 2011, a few weeks before we closed. The floorplan was so cramped that I couldn't get an unobstructed shot, even with my wide-angle lens.
Wall removed. I assumed we'd just repaint the original cabinets, but Jaime wanted a blank slate; by mid-November, the house was stripped to the studs.
Widening the dining-room doorway.
June of 2013. Window and door frame trim reinstalled. Walls painted. Flooring going down but not yet grouted. French doors (architectural salvage) are in position but not painted or installed. Our bed is set up in the living room.
September 2013: Cabinets and appliances arrive on pallets.
Electric stove swapped for gas.
Damaged in transit; warrantied, but still a hassle.
November 2013: Countertop installed. Subway-tile backsplash going in. Light fixture dangling.
I took this picture to remind myself never to buy a second-hand garbage disposal. They all leak, f.y.i.
Butcher-block counters. Thanks to friend and carpenter Kord Schaefle for fixing my botched handiwork. New back door and threshold are in but not stained.
