kitchen remodel pics

My wife Brooke has made meals for hundreds of people. And those people can attest to her amazing culinary ability. People often come to me asking how we developed our little community, called Hawthorn House. On my most honest days, I admit that much of it has been built on my brides hospitality and cooking more than anything else. It is her gifts and abilities that have made our house a living home (a term we used on our old co-blog and she currently uses for her email address). Yet, for the last five years, her office–her workshop-has been a beat up, awkwardly pieced together kitchen. As we've worked on making this old property livable she's made due with this space. Needless to say, I've been very excited to start my current project: a kitchen remodel. I've tweeted about this and to my surprise, many former Hawthornistas and folks that enjoyed my wife's cooking were eager to see the progress. Below are a few pictures of the evolution of the kitchen remodel: phase one. Our budget, and early Christmas presents from my lovely in-laws, only allows us one wall at a time. And, it's not done yet! So, hopefully we can post some more photos on completion. That said, the photos don't capture much. Our kitchen isn't very big, so it's hard to get a good angle. Guess that means you'll just have to come by and check it out for yourself. If you're lucky Brooke will whip something up for us!
