Going to have to start cooking again...


The McGuill household has been without a kitchen for about a month and a half now. While we have enjoyed exploring the endless local restaurants and not having to cook dinner after a long day of work, we are beyond excited and very ready to have the heart of our home back!

 Here is a look into the before, the demo, and the (almost) after of our kitchen renovation…


This kitchen's birthday would be coming up on twenty-two years old. As much as we loved the simple and functional space, we were ready for our kitchen renovations to get underway!


Here are the bones of the kitchen exposed and ready for a facelift…


We said good-bye to this lovely window as we welcomed three larger windows over the sink.



The wall to the butler's pantry was taken down and already letting more light into the space!


Voila! The (almost) after: the cabinets, appliances and counters are in, as well as the floors refinished.
The space looks amazing with more light than ever


All remaining on the to-do list is install the sink faucet, lighting, open shelving, and finish of the hood. Once that is completed, in will come the furniture, artwork and all the pretties!


 These new, wider french doors replaced the old doors onto the back porch allowing even more light.


 Here shows off the new space with the removal of the wall into the butler's pantry!


We are so pleased with the progress and results thus far as we are full speed ahead to the finish line. We promise to share our kitchen renovation as soon as the finishing touches are completed!

WHAT?!!!!! I didn't think you could improve on perfection but I think you're doing it. The bank of three windows over the sink is incredible and must provide a great sight line from your front. Can't wait to see it in person!

Oh My...Oh my. Such light and space! The hood plans? stucco? wood? do tell...
