Apologies for the radio silence again, but we’ve been finishing up the renovation and moving in to the new house. I’ve heard that all renovations have issues, and ours was definitely not an exception. We went from a moving date of late May/early June to early August, as you may remember from my last post about the renovation. The oven took over a month and a half just by itself to install (yes, there is quite a story attached to that fact).
Thankfully, after several pretty manic weeks, there are just a few finishing touches and we’ll be finished. We’ve even started unpacking, including finally unpacking our weddings gifts that have never even left the boxes:
(That in itself is fun because it’s almost like opening them up all over again!)
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen a few pictures go up as the renovation’s gone on. But here are a few pictures of the finished (but not yet stocked/decorated) new kitchen:
If anyone is interested, I can write several posts with information on the points that I found most important to include in my own kitchen as well as what I learned from this process (especially since it was my first renovation). Let me tell you, I learned quite a bit.
Anyway, next week we’ll be back to regularly-scheduled programming (more or less). I’ll have my camera unpacked, I’ll have new shooting space, and we’ve even set up the grill so I get to work on all those summer desserts I promised in my summer produce guide! I’m planning on posting two blogs next week.
‘Till next time!
