It's Deja Vu All Over Again

In 2011 we spent a couple of months and a lot of money remodeling the kitchen in our house in Chadron, NE. Then in 2013 we sold that house and moved to our mountain paradise in Alpine, WY. And this summer, we are going to gut the kitchen and remodel....'cuz it was so dang much fun the first time. ;)

While we love our mountain paradise home, we have never been very in love with the kitchen. So we decided to, once again, create our dream kitchen. We will have custom-made wormy maple cabinets, solid surface countertops, a huge island with the sink and dishwasher, a gas cooktop, a convection oven/confection microwave wall unit, and new tile floor, and rewiring (to address the current problem of having 16 outlets on one damn circuit). It's gonna be hell while it's happening, but so damn kickass when it's all done!

Materials we've picked out so far:

Backsplash tile (on right, 3" squares) w/accent tile (on left, 4"x 12" tiles) and countertop pattern (in middle)
Solid surface countertop
Solid surface countertop for bookcase cabinet
Solid surface countertop for island  
Floor tile (13 x 13 squares) with all 3 sold surface countertops

The real work will start with demolition of the current kitchen around the first of June. I'll keep you posted as we's gonna be another challenging, frustrating, messy journey....but boy will the pay off be awesome!

Sometimes, little ones, deja vu is worth the work....
