I’m at home with a sick Diggy so I actually have a few minutes to write. Miracolo!!
Anyway, I just wanted to share some news with y’all. My baby is coming home tomorrow! It’s been a gestation period of over 18 months but tomorrow, it’s finally happening. My new kitchen is coming!!!
We moved to our new place at the beginning of 2007 and had to do some MAJOR renovations. Have you ever seen the Money Pit? Well, it wasn’t that bad but we basically had to fix up the place from top to bottom since the previous owners hadn’t done much maintenance inside or out. We even planned to create a new living room, kitchen, laundry room and garage from the junk-filled basement (Exhibit A).
As you can see, we had quite the job on our hands. Not only did we have to plan in detail with our architect/surveyor but we had to get various permits from the town, a bureaucratic nightmare but no surprise in this country. Then my husband had to coordinate the construction workers, electricians, plumber, tile installers, painters, etc. And of course, there were delays, burst pipes, suppliers gone AWOL, budget constraints. I was starting to lose hope that I wouldn’t have my dream kitchen until I was too old for solid food. But Santa’s giving me an early Christmas present this year and tomorrow I’m finally going to meet my bella cucina!
Here’s a sneak peak of our new and improved basement:
Will post more pics after the new kitchen furniture arrives. Gotta run now. Kiddie mini-emergency. Never a dull moment around here!
