We've reached a great debate point with our house. See, we've got just over half an acre in the center of town in an older but nice neighborhood.... and most importantly a ridiculously inexpensive mortgage, truly unheard of for coastal living. So to buy land, build, move a few times.... it would add up to a lot more than a remodel. And after many lengthy conversations about what we do and don't like about our house we know that our house has good bones over all and we're done in the kiddo department so why not remodel, pay off the mortgage early and go party when we're old!
This has set my design wheels in motion, and has led to nightmares for the Husband (who informed me that maybe he should hide his tools before he comes home to a hole in the wall where I've tried knocking it down)!
I've fallen in love with black cabinets... like desperately in love. I see it all in my head very clearly, right down to the choice of flooring.... the paint color, the knobs, all of it. I'm starting my list of what to do and making design boards, even though we're not quite ready to start demolition.
