The home was built in the 50's, so we are thinking this was a remodel done perhaps in the 70's or early 80's. Even after a good cleaning, the kitchen was damaged behind the cupboard doors. The doors and drawers were no longer straight and some were not functional It was just worn out and tired and the cost to fix it was more than half way to the cost of a new kitchen. We decided to rip it out, start afresh and hire a contractor! We hired contractor, David Lightholder of Lightholder Construction, who gutted the kitchen in no time, leaving us this to see. Yuck!!! But no worries, wait to you see his finished product!
Next were questions by our contractor about what type of flooring do you want? Cupboard styles and colors? Wall colors? Appliance choices? Lighting choices? The shopping list went on and on! No problem Pete said! He LOVES to shop!!! The biggest question though was, do you want to be able to use your oven or your dishwasher? Huh? Can't I use both? The contractor said no, not without rewiring the kitchen and getting a new electrical panel. Wow. Weren't we warned of the drama!!! Well, obviously we rewired and put in a new electrical panel so we could power up everything in the house whenever we wanted to. Wouldn't you?
The new walls and flooring went in. Our wood floors were installed by "Distinctive Floors, LLC" in Brevard County. Highly recommend them! My hero (husband Pete) took care of most of the painting. I helped a little.
We are getting there aren't we? Now it's time to go hunting for light fixtures and appliances. The cabinets are going in next Wait until you see those beauties!!! They are perfect for Cocoa Girl Cottage in a coastal community!
