The kitchen is finally functional. It’s not completely finished (the refrigerator is still in the living room and the finishing touches need to be added), but it’s usable. My dad worked really hard on the kitchen and I can finally enjoy it. It’ll look perfect when the backsplash is up, so I’ll wait until that’s up before posting pics.
I’ve lived in this house for over three months now, and this is the first time I’ve been able to enjoy a cup of tea in my home. It makes me realize that, for me, a home isn’t a home until you can cook a meal from scratch and settle down with a cup of tea in front of the television.
My house has a heart now. It feels really good.
