You're right to take pictures before and after! My own house (dating back to 1860 or thereabouts) was completely gutted in order to be habitable by modern standards... and I didn't take pictures!
I really could slap myself!

thanks ordalie - I figured one day we would be so used to our new kitchen we would forget how bad it was when we started.

I'm even gonna take pictures of the colour changes around here as they are done :)

Remodeling is so much fun! You get to make it just like you want... Sometimes. Monday we start on the guest bathroom. Total makeover.

Our kitchen remodel was estimated to take four weeks. It actually took four times as long. Before and after pics are a great idea; we did it too.

Happy microwaving!
