It took one entire month. We demolished everything and turned a dining room and a u-shaped kitchen into one big eat-in area. We got new cabinets, new countertops, new appliances and new lighting. WE LIVED WITH MY PARENTS THE WHOLE TIME.
I'll let the photos speak for themselves. Although, please keep in mind that we haven't reached the DECORATING portion of our program. This is just the cleaned-up, we-can-finally-live-here version. (Which: !!!!)
