White Cottage Farm Kitchen – Demo

As many of you know we have been so sick at White Cottage Farm. Like not just your average sick. Really sick. Me, I just had a cold among other things, but Mr. LMB has been extremely sick. He was diagnosed with a rare illness that sounds like something from Harry Potter that I won’t bore you with right now, but the doctors say that it could stick around for over a month. For those asking for an update: His blood work is not great, but improving as of last week. I’ve never really seen Jose sick in the 10 years we have been married, so this has been really hard on me emotionally seeing him weak. Jose isn’t a weak man. He works and works and works & is never one to sit or not be singing or talking while we are home. To see him quietly bundled on the couch has been so hard. I’ve seen life return to him in the past few days which has made me so happy.. I want my best friend back to normal. We are getting close! That all being said.. kitchen progress has been SLOW. I’m talking, we are only ALMOST done with demo. I wanted to give you  a little update of what the kitchen looked like today..

The kitchen before…

& after…

Island gone, flooring gone, cabinets gone, & it’s looking like a true construction zone. We are so close to starting the fun things like paint, tile, counters, island, walls, flooring, & so much more. This past week all we really could manage was taking down all the upper cabinets. There will be no upper cabinets in this kitchen in an attempt to make this space feel more open and airy, but more on that and that decision later. All there is left to take out is those old counter tops which should be a quick job.

So, there we have it. The kitchen and the sunroom all torn up & ready for us to work some magic. I can’t say it enough, I am SO READY to have a kitchen again. I can’t wait to use this as the heart of our home & not just avoid it at all costs. We honestly don’t even live in 1/2 of our house right now because most of it is torn up. I’m ready to have one area that is kind of finished. Thank you guys for following along with our fixer upper journey & supporting us through it all! It’s been quite the journey. Thank you for all your prayers for Jose as well & for stopping by the blog today… be sure to follow me on Facebook & Instagram for more behind the scenes. xx

    I cant wait to see what you do to this space! I have the same subzero frig we have 2 and they are getting a facelift this Presidents day new moulding and arch treatment-they were stainless but we took old step back cabinet doors and covered them instead-wish i had your home salvage moulding to beef up what we built around them-so im stacking new trim-

    So glad to hear that Jose is improving and I wish him a speedy recovery to full health. I know how frustrating it is to live through a kitchen construction, but it’s amazing how much better the space looks already – so much more spacious and light. Looking forward to seeing what finishes you choose!

    Hi Liz,
    Reading your blog and realized renovating a house is alot of work, time and patience. I’m so inspired you and Jose doing most of the work yourselves, cause you’ll also have your jobs that you do as well. I wish you the best of luck on your farmhouse and hope it turns out to be everthing you’ll dreamed of it to be.
