Working together

Day 4 of remodeling project
Wow, day 4 of our remodeling project, and I have learned alot about working together on a project that has not been planned by everyone involved.

Originally my dear husband said "Just do what you want honey, I always like your work."   Well that led me to believe that he really did not have an opinion on the choices, or how things were to be done.  I thought he was just going to do the work!
Wrong, ... oh so wrong. 

After many years as a designer, I should have known that he was going to have an opinion. Silly me...

So, we have worked very hard, gotten very dirty, and did quite a bit of  shopping together.

My original thought was to have a high contrast kitchen that was black and white.  I have already gotten my appliances that are white, and have always loved that look.
However, he does not want it to look 'like a hospital', which of course it wouldn't.

As we have always done, we are going to compromise so we both enjoy our home.
I will have white cabinets, but the look will be softer with a softer tone on the countertops and dark wood floors.  I will be using some accent finishes on the island and the pantry.

We have also decided to change a bit of the layout after finding some 'surprises' when we opened the walls.  But that is not a bad thing, and the results will be great.

So, the electrician and plumber have been here to do the preliminary work.  The popcorn ceilings are all scraped, the wall is down and additional header is up.  Still need to fill in the gap in the floor underlayment.

I think it has been a very productive week, and we have had some laughs, as well as growling  (from him of course, never me)

Stay tuned for the next installment on the adventures of our great kitchen remodel...
