I have owned this house for 7 years now and almost everything inside and outside has been changed. Except for 2 areas that are various degrees of disaster, the master bathroom and the kitchen. The master bathroom is falling apart and because of the strange layout, needs a complete gut job. I am going to try and outsource that one to a contractor because of the work level involved. Finding a contractor with any time available is an issue right now because of the Butte fire last year that destroyed so many homes. I am going to do most of the work on the kitchen except for the counter-tops so that I can get something done and save some money.
First thing is the layout of the kitchen is a U shaped which means it has only 1 entrance and with the refrigerator on the side that you entered the kitchen, it felt blocked in. I can't change the layout because there isn't any room to expand it. So I moved the refrigerator to the other side of the kitchen by the glass door, where there was a big open space. However the frig was too big so I had to buy a counter-depth one and that was expensive.

|New one - still in the box|

|This was really strange... it was a giant clod of dirt blocking the pipe. I had to remove it of course and I am not sure how it got there.|
