We went back and found old pictures from our very first remodel started in May 2001. These images were take with a 3 megapixel camera back in the day so they aren’t the greatest but we’ve been wanting to document that event as it was the first of many. So, here goes.
During this remodel we updated the only bathroom. Updated the kitchen. Enclosed the front porch. Installed french doors between living room and first bedroom to create an office.
This was a very tough remodel for us. We had two dogs. We came home one Friday from work to find no toilet. This was a holiday weekend. No toilet and no call from contractor. It was the remodel from hell.
Next up was the kitchen and dining area. This was a small galley kitchen with a washer.
We were so happy to say goodbye to our bad news contractors. You don’t see the pain we went through in these pictures. It was a tough time, though, we recognize it as a first world problem. We’re fortunate to live where we live and have what we have. Although, the bathroom had to be renovated again, the kitchen has endured and been lovingly used.
