Here is a before and after picture of our kitchen renovation.  (Larger image here.)  We are completely re-doing the house my husband bought before we got married.  After this phase is complete we will be putting on an addition.

So far in the kitchen we have opened the space to the living room, installed corrugated metal ceilings with rope light behind the crown moulding, re-sheetrocked, painted, installed new light fixtures, stripped and re-stained the cabinets, and had granite countertops installed.

We still need to build the cabinet doors and spiff up the cabinet interiors, but the bulk is complete.

There are more pictures and details on my blog.

wow! That's really classy! I love the shelves under the island. What's the cabinet treatment? It looks like a cool texture.

Sadly, it isn't a treatment on the cabinet interiors.  Some are made of osb (oriented strand board) and the newer ones are made of red oak plywood.  Next on the list is spiffing up the insides of the cabinets and building doors.  I'd love to leave some of them open, but with three big dogs, everything would stay dusty and dirty all the time.

I love what you've done on your house..It is great and beautiful..I'm planning also to do something on my house especially my siding repair. Could you suggest me something or someone who can help me out??

I've already read many articles and watched couple of videos, so far i got some details at http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xeh96c_siding-repair-houston-8665935222_people . It provides essential information regarding siding repair and home improvements.

However, I still need more details before finalizing my plan. Thanks in advance:)
