Elizabeth and her family live in Lexington, Kentucky. She emailed about a year ago and said can you help me? And attached these photos.
We helped. Poor Elizabeth was without a kitchen for a very long time. She had us on speed dial and we (I say “we”, it was mostly Allison) offered design and moral support for Elizabeth during this renovation. We’ve never set foot in Elizabeth’s house. All of this work was done via email and phone. There were times of panic (Elizabeth, I hope you can laugh now)… the faucet was back-ordered, should she wait for it, or should she reselect? The cabinet guy goofed on the door style, but he made it right. The lights, we ended up ordering two chandeliers and played a lot of “hold this up and send us a picture”. And at the very end of it all, Elizabeth decided she wanted tongue and groove pine on the ceiling. The kitchen was completed and then the ceiling work began. I know she was stressed out.
Living without a kitchen for a long period of time is total insanity. You don’t realize how much you appreciate your kitchen until it’s gone. Elizabeth did dishes in her bathroom sink for months. I think in the end she would agree… it was all worth it.
[All photos were taken by Elizabeth, she's pretty darn good with a camera! Thanks Elizabeth!]
