A Hole in the Wall!

This morning my kitchen looked like this.  Then ....

...these guys showed up!

Pierce Home Improvements! They are mighty good at cutting holes in walls!!

That was Kevin up there perched on my counter! Man... how does he do that?  
I marvel at the agility of these guys...  

This is Daryl. Owner of Pierce Home Improvements.   He's my second cousin. It's funny how many people you're related to when you've lived your entire life in one area.

Is he laughing at my sink?

It was only 25 degrees here this morning. I had a nice fire going in the wood furnace so we stayed nice and toasty while the cold wind whistled through the big open hole!

By mid afternoon we had two new windows installed!
Didn't take them long at all!



The orange sink remains... but for not much longer.

I'll keep you posted as we continue to make progress on our kitchen remodel!
I'm  so darn happy with these new windows I just had to share today!

Remember too that Friday I will be picking a name out of the hat for the Mr. Chill pattern on Linen!

Go to my last post and leave your name in the comments if you haven't already and would like a chance to win!

Friday will be here before the wink of an eye!!

See you then!!

  4. Oooh exciting! Love the new windows. It is amazing how fast they can install them. I'm dreaming of new bedroom windows in 2015.
    It does make me a little sad about the orange sink. I hope you will repurpose it somewhere. Its kind of an icon ;)

  14. Love the windows. I, too have a big window above my sink. Man do I love looking out that window and watching the critters playing, leaves changing color, the brief but beautiful snows we get in East Tennessee. We are lucky women. Merry Christmas.

  15. What a wonderful improvement! I love watching the birds at my feeders through the kitchen window - almost makes doing the dishes bearable!

  16. When we built our house that was one thing I would not back down on a large window above my sink. I love yours!

  17. Ahhhhhh.... Windows!!!! New ones keep out the drafts of winter and lets in some much needed daylight! Plus, you've got a great yard to admire! :-) Enjoy! I can relate to how happy you are with these projects being taken care of! :-)

  18. You might have to change the name of your blog???? Light is always a wonderful addition to a home.

  19. I love your new windows. All of that natural light!

  20. New windows make a world of difference; got ours last fall. Love love how they add character inside and out. Kinda like the orange sink....but I get it.
