Eating spaces

Here’s a tour of the dining room and kitchen as is…

The front door opens on the dining room. Not my preference, but we’re keeping it that way.

The dining room opens to the living addition.

A door way leads to the kitchen. Imagine the top of that wall knocked out and replaced with a bar at counter height so you can see into the kitchen from the front door. (Its okay, my sink is usually clean.)


There is nothing good to say about this kitchen except the morning light is stunning. Its lime. It will be gutted. 

Here’s a sneak peek at my inspiration for the kitchen remodel:

Release of Defects

We signed the closing documents this morning on this old farmhouse in Snoqualmie, WA. It was built in 1939, and added on to in the early 60’s. One of the papers we signed was a “release of defects.” As I signed, I laughed. This house is one big defect.

How exciting.

I am opening up this blog once more to document the remodeling process. Here are a few exterior shots of the house as it sits now.
