Living without a kitchen is the worst. These pictures tell the sad tale.
Six months ago our dishwasher leaked and ruined our hickory floors. It took months for the hickory to dry out so that they could be resanded/refinished, but by then we were close to starting out kitchen project so we thought we’d do it all at the same time. Lucky us, our subfloor got ruined as well and had to be replaced. Thank goodness for homeowner’s insurance.
The above picture is the gaping hole when the rotted subfloor was cut out. The below picture is after it was replaced with new plywood and new hickory floor. The peachy stuff is the wood filler drying before the sanding occurred.

We took the kitchen apart before Christmas and stashed its contents into three rooms and one hallway. For crackers, spices, and baking products you’ll need to enter the office. Sadly, we never found the cinnamon last night for arroz con leche.
For fine china, a rolling pin, and a teapot, you’ll need to enter the master bedroom:
Is living this way as fun as it looks? Nope. Just look at Hallie’s face.
Thankfully it will all change this week as the cabinets are being installed. Sadly, 10 more days after that is the normal time for marble countertops to be cut and installed. Kill me now.
