Let's Pour Some Concrete (Reno Day #7)

Side Yard Prepped for Concrete

You guys! We are pouring the concrete tomorrow!!! This renovation is really happening, and we are so excited. We've had a crew working here the past week getting everything ready for the pour and the last thing we needed was in inspection, which we passed today. Hey-O!

The new concrete footers and foundation will only take a day and then on Monday we start framing! I can't even imagine what it will feel like to have a structure go up. It will really start to take shape.

Oh, and did I mention we started home schooling this week? So many things happening at once! Luckily we have AWESOME kids that go with the flow and are taking all these changes in stride. Lets hope it stays that way!

I was texting my sister-in-law today and I told her how it all felt so surreal. This has been a dream of ours for a while and we never thought it would actually happen, so we keep pinching ourselves to make sure this is real life.

So, now we are trying to finalize all of our design choices: decide on paint colors, choose light fixtures, pick an apron sink or regular.

The big question is whether or not to do two toned cabinets. I LOVE the way it looks, and I think it will help disguise some of the little kid dirt that sticks to the lower cabinets. Two inpirations I really like:

So there ya have it. Lots going on, lots to still go on, lots to decide on, lots of coffee to be had... Ok, I'm rambling but you get the picture! I would love any suggestions you have for the kitchen: Things you can't live without, form vs. function, or detail pieces that make you love your space.
