The Kitchen is Complete

Two months ago today we started to remodel our kitchen and today it is complete.

Here is what we started with. This house was built about 50 years ago and we hadn't done anything but replace appliances and put down new floor tile.

It was very nice 50 years ago. This was a modern kitchen in the 60's.

This is how it looks today. The picture is taken from about the same spot in the dining room.
What do you think? Is it an improvement?
The Rev and I are very pleased. We opened up the space and added more counter space and storage. Of course upgrading the appliances doesn't hurt either. The part that amazes me the most is that it feels like we have a larger kitchen when I know that we didn't increase the floor space at all. It may actually be slightly smaller.

Kudos to Jeri Duenow at the Ar-Jay Center for the design and Daryl and Caleb from Ideal Construction for making it happen.

Well the winter project is done - just in time for Spring. Next task is to remodel the front yard.
