Re-Constructing Home–Part 39: The Evolution of a Kitchen

As the renovation of Bethany & Derek’s 1915 Craftsman draws to a close, it seems only fitting to go back and review the amazing transformation their house has undergone.

This week, we’ll take a look at the evolution of the kitchen:

Derek and Bethany currently eagerly await two major milestones: 1) moving into their beautiful, renovated home, and 2) the birth of their second child. It’s going to be a race to the finish. But the good news is that the kitchen is done, and it’s practically perfect in every way.
