Earlier this week marked one month since we got the keys to our new house. It also marks one month since we started our DIY home improvement project. The first DIY home improvement project that we’re tackling is our kitchen/powder room/great room (basically one giant area at the entrance of our house).
I can’t wait to share all about this process with you, and I’m kicking it off today with how we’re surviving life without a kitchen. This isn’t the first time we’ve been without a kitchen, although during our unexpected remodel we still had the use of our oven.
When we moved into this house, we picked one of the rooms off the living room to be a makeshift kitchen/pantry. Brad set up some shelves and folding tables to help organize the area, and so far it is working out pretty well.
One set of shelves, along with the built-in desk have become our pantry. The shelves are actually about the same size as our pantry in the old house. And yes, sometimes I eat like a 5 year old with my guilty pleasure of Lucky Charms and Fruit by the Foot.
We probably have a couple more months of this project so we have a quite a few more meals to be created in our makeshift kitchen. What is your favorite oven-free meal?
