Phase I complete, Phase II begins!

Phase I Apel Remodeling has officially ended and Phase II started this morning. Phase II will not be so extensive...just a wall being punched out, a couple doors being added, and a wall that needs to be closed in! Isn't my husband amazing?

In celebration of Phase I being complete, I wanted to post these pics of all Charlie's hard work!

This was the kitchen BEFORE we moved in (notice all the wasted cabinet space on the left):





During construction...look at all that cabinet and countertop space we gained! We closed in one of the doors, took out a wall and a closet behind it (to open our living room up) and put in a window bar and widened the other entry to the kitchen:



Look at my BEAUTIFUL red kitchen:

Kirby said...

the french doors will be done tomorrow...but we he still has to close in the door that originally went from the kitchen to the garage, build my laundry closet, (which he may not do for a while) and still has to put a door on the hallway.

so phase II, part I will be done but not the entire phase II

It's so cute! I was looking at the picture and it reminded me of what I said to you this weekend about we have something in common. I have all those red accessories also the canisters, napkin holder, utensil holder etc... I love red. My biggest regret with the new house is that I didn't realize the floor color I chose would preclude the abundant use of red! Your remodel is beautiful!
