First Steps for our Remodel

Our Remodeling Saga, Introduction

On January 15, we started interviewing contractors for a kitchen remodel. Soon, the walls will start coming down. I thought I'd start blogging about the process, so that our out of town friends could see the progress.

Hopefully, as things move along, I will have only good things to write about our general contractor, Kevin, at Crescent Construction, and his team. So far, things have been going smoothly, but a little slowly for my taste. We were expecting to begin demolition in May and be done by mid-August. Demolition has not begun yet and some of the sub-contractors are still being lined up. This may mean that things will move very smoothly and quickly, once demo occurs. I guess we will all find out!

We started the design phase by working with Leslie Jensen at Signature Woodworks. Leslie came out to our house in January, measured, and took pictures. She had a great kitchen plan ready for us by mid-February.

A remodel blog series will be very popular.


Hello! I'm Heather and I'm a bit manic about Tacoma.

I'll probably be blogging about my experiences in Tacoma as they relate to the environment (natural and built), social (in)justice, community building, economic development, bio-diesel, public transit, biking, gardening, home improvement, food & wine, and my little family (me, my husband, one dog, one cat). This is my first attempt at writing a blog - so please bear with me.
