Sixteen years ago my parents unexpectedly sold their house within four days, and suddenly they had to design and build a new house bronto, with two little girls and a four-month-old baby in tow. It was rushed to say the least. Now they are in the process of updating their house, and the room that needs the most work is of course the place where we all spend the most time – the kitchen/nook area. Its a small kitchen that opens up into a larger eatting/sitting area that gets a lot of natural light with great views of the river behind them. People naturally seem to gravitate towards this room and it always feels homey, but all of the traffic has had some wear and tear on it. Their main goal is to replace the linoleum flooring with ceramic tile and update the rooms.
And of course our kitchen wouldn’t be complete without keeping the Tim Hortons’ coffee maker, complete with two sugar containers (we have a problem) and a cute little coffee jar. I don’t even drink coffee and I know the EXACT measurements that go into making their favorite blend.
Next week I’ll post about the demolition work that we all chipped in on, and the progress that has been made so far.
