My New Kitchen!

Ever since we moved into our house back in 1999 we have wanted to extend the kitchen, for the size of the house it was too small especially when trying to cook and dish up dinner for 5 of us! This had always been beyond our means until hubby suggested doing as much of the work as he could himself to keep costs down. So about 7 months ago after getting permission from the council to extend the existing kitchen the work started.

DSCF9732  Sophie had to help as well ! The patio doors you can see in this photo were removed once the extension was built as this became the walk way into our dining room.


The bricking up was done by a neighbour who is a builder.

Sadly I can not find any photos of the kitchen before we started the work and for some reason I didn’t take any !!!

Here is a small peek at the end result:
