We have a *NEW* floor!

Ok, I’ve been getting quite a few questions asking where the next kitchen update is. Glad to see everyone is as excited as we are about this little project.

I’d also like to thank everyone for the kind words about my work in a tiny kitchen. I have to admit, that we also have a kitchen cart on wheels that is usually right next to the counterspace where the dishwasher is. That cart basically doubled the amount of counter space I had in the kitchen. Another trick I did was to keep 2 jelly roll pans on top of the burners so that the stovetop basically became even more counterspace. Basically, you have to get creative when you have a small kitchen.

I’ve also been asked by a number of people what the first thing I plan to bake in the new kitchen will be. I *surprisingly* haven’t put much thought into it yet, but if anyone has suggestions, feel free to send them my way. I’d like it to be something I’ve never made and something challenging…

Back to the kitchen! We came home on Day 4 to find the tile laid in the kitchen. The grout hasn’t been done yet, but the tiles are all in place! I had a hard time getting a good picture because we couldn’t walk in there, so I was just poking my head through the plastic doorway. I forget the name of the tile. I think it was Chocolate or Mocha and it’s from Home Depot for $2.09/sq-ft.

Another exciting thing happened on Day 4. We ordered all of our appliances and our sink! Very exciting.

    Looks great! That extra counter space over the radiator looks like a perfect cooling spot for baked goods 🙂

    Yay! The granite looks awesome. That extra countertop space over the radiators is going to come in really handy I’d say! Can’t wait to see the backsplash.
