Type of Project: Kitchen remodel
Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Type of building: Single-family bungalow, 950 square feet

The Renovation Diaries are a new collaboration with our community in which we feature your step by step renovation progress and provide monetary support towards getting it done in style.
It's been kind of a slow moving week over here. Work has been crazy for the both of us, so the transformation is slow. We removed the cabinets, tore down the original damaged plaster behind them, and had to spend a lot of time cleaning up.

We also patched the floors with salvaged hardwood where the original icebox stood, as well where the original stairwell was.

One fun thing to share: we decided to repurpose the old base cabinets in our basement laundry room. A fresh coat of paint and a new countertop. And one less chunk of history in the landfill. Pics to follow.

Estimated time for project: 4-8 weeks
Time remaining: 3-4 weeks

Check out the full series (so far) and be sure to join us next week for #6 of Claire & Jeffrey's Diary.
