Kitchen Renovation: Modern Wood Stoves

Well we had to do a bit of research to finally discover a wood stove that would fit our modern aesthetic and would be in a price range that we could afford. But we finally did! Here's a link to Pacific Energy where we found "the Fusion". A sleek modern wood burning stove. We opted to the black one and not the stainless steel one pictures here (mostly because of cost).  Also thanks to our wonderful friends, Mr. and Mrs. Duck Monkey, we discovered this Springfield business that will order it for us and install at a reasonable price - Good Deal Metal. The wood stove is going to go at the far end of the front room, so while it's not exactly a part of the kitchen redo it's a part of the overall front room redo which is taking place at the same time. Can't wait to do yoga in the front room heated by our cozy and modern stove!


Mission Kitchen Redo: Demolition DIY

The demolition has begun! Mr. Monkey may be having too much fun. It's true I caught him removing door frames that maybe he didn't need to remove because he was on a roll. I gotta say that even though we're just in the beginning of this process and things in the front room are a bit trashed I already feel the promise of the changes. When I walked in the home this evening the door was open and with the closet gone it truly felt like a breathe of fresh air. Here are some pictures of before and current status. We'll be sure to keep the updates coming fast and furious as we start to make lots of decisions and progress will be happening quickly over the next 6 weeks or so.
