Now that the exterior is almost completely sealed up, we’re getting ready to paint the first room in the house–the kitchen!
It’s raining today so it was a good day for John to do touch-up spackling and sanding before he primes the walls.
BEFORE (October 29, 2015)
In most of the kitchen photos, the casement window above the sink area is usually covered. Today, John took the tarp down.
Last year, Tyvek covered the kitchen window opening.
The ceiling and walls will be painted white. I mentioned in the past that I plan on having white shaker-style cabinets. Down the road, I want to add rustic wood ceiling beams.
After the kitchen is painted, the floor will be installed. We’ll be choosing wide plank wood flooring from Floor and Décor. A new store opened recently which is conveniently located about 3 miles away.
The Maytag appliances will be on the right wall. The dishwasher will be to the left of the kitchen sink.
The range will be toward the middle of the wall and the refrigerator will be toward the right corner.

Lastly, interior French doors will be installed separating the kitchen from the dining area and living room.
