Our kitchen renovation reveal is finally here!
Approximately 3 years ago, we started the renovation on our rancher-style home where we added a garage, created a larger laundry room with a side door entrance, extended our kitchen out into the backyard and renovated the main bathroom. Let’s just say the renovation which took months of hard work, sweat equity and patience did pay off. We are so happy with the end result and if you live through your own renovation, that is something you have to keep reminding yourself of. The months of disruption that you experience during the renovation is mostly forgotten when you are enjoying the end results of your dream kitchen or living space.
And it truly is our dream kitchen.
Kitchen Renovation: Before
If you want to appreciate how far it has come, here are some before photos.
It all started with us having drawings done by Mitchell Baker, owner of Karnak Pro Builders in North Vancouver. He envisioned a kitchen with a view of the forest behind our house, building with the original pitch line of the existing roof to create a grand indoor/outdoor living area that provided ample natural light.
Our designer friend Christina James helped us create the layout of the kitchen cabinets after I shared with her the look and feel that we wanted in the kitchen work zone.
Kitchen Renovation: After
The collaborative result is a light-filled kitchen that’s perfect for entertaining with friends and family, as well as a place to enjoy a morning coffee.
