Our friends Walker Uhlhorn and George Uhlhorn of Uhlhorn Brothers Construction graciously took on our project amidst working on a bunch of new builds in the Memphis area. They helped us rethink the two rooms that were damaged by a hidden-under-many-layers-of-old-tile dishwasher leak. Now, we're so happy to cook and hang out in one big room since their guys knocked down a wall for us and rebuilt the kitchen and adjoining dining room.
We both love redesigning spaces. In previous posts, you can see how our kitchen has changed since we've lived in the same 1950's East Memphis house (our first home) for the past 14 years. Here's a spice cabinet re-do, pantry re-do, the update before the leak happened, the beginning of the renovation (including a bit of the pretty weird stuff that was hiding behind the walls), and the middle of the reno, including cabinets and woodworking.
If you ever find yourself in the middle of a renovation, planned or completely not, or if you just don't feel like cooking one weeknight, this is the meal for you: Annie's microwave mac and cheese, a can of Amy's chili, Greek yogurt, and sliced avocado. It's quick and it's the best.
