Peaks Island Kitchen Remodel

This will be our third visit over the past three winters to the Peaks Island Cottage for remodel work. During this time the esthetics to the cottage have changed dramatically for the better. New exterior trim work, and with  bedrooms & bathrooms left undone, they now have been revamped and completed to a more inviting atmosphere. However this time around we are focusing our attention in the kitchen. In place were metal cabinets, uneven flooring, leaky faucet and a ceiling that needed lots of attention. Our goal is to correct all of these issues and when completed will transform the kitchen into more modern yet functional space. The pictures below will provide a view of the step by step progress until completion.
