Dare I say that there were no redeeming qualities of this kitchen? Okay, maybe the window. But you will be absolutely shocked when you see the incredible transformation that this space has undergone. You'll barely recognize it. Click through to check it out.
A few years ago, when my wife and I moved across the country, we had absolutely no idea if anyone would ever come visit us. Sure, we had strong relationships with family and friends, and we moved to a city with plenty of attractions for visitors, but the truth is: we just didn't know. We were far outside of driving distance, and cross-country air travel is an expensive investment. Both of our families had generations of firm roots in the Midwest, so it wasn’t just a location shift; it was a conceptual one too.
Good news: people came. They came for summer trips, for holidays, to spend time with us, and as a free launching pad for their own Pacific Northwest vacations. A few years later, they’re still coming. This summer alone, we’ve had no fewer than thirteen guests, with four more scheduled before the end of the year. We've become a little haven for folks exploring the mountains, the ocean, the waterfalls, the ancient forests, and the exceptional food and culture that Portland has to offer.

The bones of this kitchen were really great. The kitchen is open to the living room, and just off the living room is a huge deck and beautiful backyard. The kitchen cabinets were not only in great condition but very custom. The only problem was the kitchen was a little outdated.
