The washer/dryer and refrigerator are now very conveniently located to the couch now because we are redoing the kitchen  Everything had to be moved/sold/trashed. The kitchen remodel is a complete overhaul- new floors, cabinets, countertops, paint, a peninsula, lighting, plus we took out a window (to be able to add the peninsula).

Kitchen before:

Not so great, right? Boring, outdated, and hardly any cabinet space.  At least there is a cute kitty that stalks the dead mice under the fridge.  Yep, when we moved the fridge there were 3 dead mice carcasses underneath.

Somehow I convinced my brother Michael  to come visit from Iowa and help out for the demolition.  Actually I just told him I would buy him crab cakes and oysters every night plus Orioles baseball is in town.  Good to know:  Michael will do hard labor for crab cakes from Ryleighs.

BC and Michael hard at work.  Cyrus supervises.

And the kitchen now:

The kitchen seems so spacious now!   Putting down the floors comes first, then new drywall, and paint before the cabinets, and appliances come in.  This is going to take a while!
