Kitchen Update

I promised a kitchen update about a month ago!   I'm happy to say that things are progressing and the end is in sight!

Our project, which involved much more than just the kitchen, is just a few short weeks away from completion.

The stress, the worrying, the sleepless nights, the decisions that were looming and seemed so huge... it's all going away and being replaced by excitement and anticipation!

There is still a lot to do, but here's what's done:

The floor was installed and finished (this is actually part of the new family room)

The drywall went up

And the walls were finished - goodbye rusty orange!!

 The walls and trim were painted, the cabinets were installed

The recessed lights were put in and the soapstone was placed - aack!  So exciting!

It's all coming together and I've been told I'll be able to move into the kitchen in a couple of weeks.  Still to do - seal the brick, and install appliances, stainless countertops, sinks, faucets, cabinet hardware and tile backsplash.  How I wish I were on the Property Brothers timeline.  Our entire project would've been completed months ago!  Someone please tell me how they complete a major renovation from start to finish in 5 weeks!


  1. Looking great! So excited for you and looking forward to seeing the whole thing completed. All the best to you!!

  2. I love it so far and can't believe how long it takes too! Let's get a TV production crew in there to speed things up :)

  3. It's going to be beautiful - I didn't know it was possible to get so much light in a Pittsburgh house!! We LOVE our soapstone countertops. They're easy to maintain, and it's nice to be able to put hot pans right on it.
