The renovation chugged along at the same pace as the baby’s growth. The kitchen was dramatically transformed in the last few days of the renovation. We went from a barely dry-walled room to a space that could now pass for a kitchen.
Our friend and contractor worked extreme hours, with help from our lovely family, to give us a working kitchen by the time we got home from the hospital. Not only did we come home to a functional kitchen, but most of the finishing details were complete. It was beautiful.
The “after” pictures are coming tomorrow. I promise. We finally kept the kitchen clear of dirty dishes and baby stuff long enough to take pretty pictures to show
that the baby hasn’t taken over everyone.
