How Dry Wall Can Change Your Life

October 15, 2015

You guys, we are THIS close to having a functioning kitchen again.  Dry wall went up yesterday and everything zoomed ahead a million miles an hour.   You can see all the distinct areas now; the eat in kitchen, the “mudroom”, utility spaces, and kitchen prep and cooking areas.

The kitchen sink cabinet will extend out from the main wall of cabinets and into the room.  We planned the kitchen so that guests could gather at the table, leaving the kitchen free for prep and cooking, while still allowing interaction between people in both spaces.

Distinct prep and cooking stations will (hopefully) keep mess to a minimum and provide enough space for two cooks at a time.  Small appliances will all find a home in the pantry along with the dog bowls, fridge, and microwave.

The little area right off the new back door will be a home for coats and shoes.  So not technically a mudroom but close enough.
