project: kitchen remodel

Progress report on the kitchen remodel: I've met with contractors, suppliers, et al. The demo drawings are drawn, the details are being hammered out... now for some more progress. The kind with some action in the actual space. I'm antsy for dust and hammering in the near future.
The way this project has started is the usual design consultation plus additional design time to pull together all the details and drawings for the client to approve and either decide to go on with it on her own, or keep me on to make sure the plans go forward as I see them.
The small intimidated voice in me says 'take them and run' but the larger adventurous side says 'keep me around I'll make everything easier!'
Everyone has to have a starting place. I've designed {or decorated before the degree} for 7 years now but have never taken on anything of this size. It's time to see if I have what it takes.

  1. You will do great! Go get em!

  2. I will wait with bated breath to see the JMR kitchen version completed. Would love to have all the details...duration, cost, unforseen difficulties. You know, the Candace Olsen version of JMR.....or maybe, the JMR version of Candace Olsen!

  3. A JMR kitchen? Honestly, I can't wait.

  4. I know what you mean about getting into the dust and elbow grease part of things. I'm sure you will do fantastic!

  5. How fun! Love the second kitchen. Good luck with your project I am sure you will do a great job.
