When My Husband (T) and I bought our 1954 home in the Spring of 2009, it is quite possible that nothing had been updated since then. T and I decided that the one room in the house that we would usher into the 21st century would be the kitchen. It is quite miraculous that two 21 year olds both having full time jobs and head deep in wedding planning managed to design a kitchen where every cabinet and appliance harmoniously open and the “kitchen work triangle” does, in fact, exist! Because life is all about learning, 6 months after we moved in, our stand alone ice maker flooded our entire kitchen. This event led to, once again, our entire kitchen being gutted & remodeled. I am quite confident when I say, I know of no one else who has remodeled their kitchen twice in one year. This is not something one should claim as an accomplishment or feat, as it is quite trying.
