kitchen before & after: a reno

Recently I posted a dining room 'before and after' in a previous home of mine. Someone was asking about the kitchen that was also extensively renovated. So here is the kitchen reno! The state of the kitchen 'BEFORE' was not so great, it needed to be gutted from the floors to walls to adding new electrical, plumbing, new cabinets, appliances, etc. The wall between the kitchen and dining room was removed and an island was placed here with the sink, dishwasher, cabinets and seating. Here it is before:

 And the renovation begins! It's never much fun to live through a kitchen reno but it was well planned and was a working kitchen again after about 8 weeks.

And here it is once the appliances and cabinets are getting into place:

And finally...the finished product! A few more AFTER shots:
