We went from a 12’ by 16’ poorly laid out kitchen with an obtrusive middle island to a spacious 18’ by 20’ kitchen by incorporating space from a rarely used adjacent sunroom. We had to remove a load-bearing post from the old kitchen island but couldn’t get rid of two other load-bearing posts between the family room and kitchen (we spruced them up instead). We used a fabulous GC who got the job done in two and a half months. In addition to the kitchen remodel we added a master suite. That wasn’t part of the original plan but we had to deal with getting the roofline of the sunroom even with the existing kitchen so we decided to go ahead and build upward as well. The footprint of the house stayed the same but now we have a fabulous walk-in closet and sitting room upstairs as a bonus.

Many thanks to the people my DH fondly calls “The Cult”. Much inspiration was gained from Vatmark’s kitchen, Gellchom’s and Rima’s cork flooring, Weed’s island and topmount sink, Julie O’s exuberance with her “Big Sink”, Norman’s Caesarstone expertise. The list could go on and on. I’m glad I found this forum when we were in the planning stages. It took over a year from idea to reality and to think it all started out with wanting to replace our counters and a couple of old appliances ;)
