Kitchen Remodeling Update..Walls..going, going gone !



New Pantry wall roughed in Shelf above 

pantry wall

  Our remodeling plan meant taking down a wall that

separated the kitchen and the great room...and adding a wall to do a pantry makeover from the deep shelves where food "disappears" to the 12' walk in pantry. The wet bar from the great room will now be re-positioned on the pantry wall that extends into the great room.

   The wall between the great room and  the kitchen came down to both

expand  the kitchen and allow for the cgreat room/kitchen wallooktop Island as well as the new more open concept for these rooms.  Here it is,..."stripped naked of

its drywall embarrassed by its bare wires hanging out .     Now the wall is gone....and today  rough electric will be completed..repositioning overhead lighting and under cabinet lighting...with all the lights and new  window over the  south side of the kitchen...we will be  two  lighter and  brighter cooks !

new header wall gone New "header"  and wall is gone! City inspector to arrive on Monday...with roughing completed...the new drywall will be going up next week and the new shape of both these rooms easier to see. our AR you are in the dusty loop of our remodeling. To our public audience...know that we know many aspects of real estate...including building and remodeling...who better to help you Sell or buy real estate in southeastern Wisconsin than a team that knows real estate...literally....from the inside... out !   Call the Hansons for the education and hands on experience you appreciate for all things real estate.
