Some of the before pics...
This wall, the below bathroom and the staircase to the basement were all taken out to create a larger kitchen area!!  This picture shows the original wood floors - we put all new wood floors since the wall, stairs and bathroom were moved.
This bathroom and these disgusting stairs were taken out to expand the kitchen!
This house actually didn't have a kitchen when purchased!  This is where it was designed to go - it was WAY too small!!
 This was the original dining room but now it will be the main part of the kitchen.
I love the original radiator cover but couldn't make it work to keep it there (they are just for show because it was converted to forced heat/air many years ago).
The stained glass was taken out decades ago - I might put them back in!

Here is a look at the progress...
They are working on my island this week - I can't wait to see it!
I found this vintage table for sale but I wanted something counter height so it wouldn't work. 
James (the cabinet guy) is going to try to reproduce the table the best that he can but have it function as a counter with barstools.
Thanks for all of the compliments:) - I had no clue how stressful a remodel could be!!

I love the hardware on the upper cabs with the glass.
The crowns are magnificent, + I love the gray!

Even better "in person" than I imagined when we spoke last week! Now I can't wait for my new kitchen! Well done!

My husband and I looked at this house a few years ago. We love(d) the house but the kitchen just didn't work for us and the hallway to the master bath annoyed my husband. We had an architect look at it and he suggested removing the back side of the staircase to make the kitchen bigger! We couldn't do that because the staircase was amazing. Glad to hear it found the right owners!

Looks like you’ve been hiding other clever ideas for the renovation of your kitchen. Hahaha! It’s nice to know that removing the bathroom and stairs is all worth it. Seeing those fabulous changes in your kitchen can definitely encourage anyone to add some zing in their places. Thanks for sharing that! Keep us updated! :)

your cabinets are so beautiful. can't wait to see the finished room. I love Morris and visit every time I visit my daughter in Aurora. Will be by your shop next time too.

Love your shop... I wish there could be more XL shirts ... but probably better that there is not since I would be BROKE every time I visit! You have created a gorgeous destination shop for woman in the area who want the original. I also own a 120 year old fixer upper... love to rehab my Victorian lady!
Good luck to you!
