A sneak peek 

I posted this on the Six Little Acres Facebook page, but just in case you missed it, here’s a before and…. well…. during. Guess I’m too stinkin excited to wait! Let’s just talk about that “before” image. 

It smelled as bad as it looks. No. I’m serious y’all. 

Think stank, then add roadkill. That’s still not quite it but doggone close. ALL the materials from that kitchen have been replaced. 

That “during” photo? Ohhhh. I can’t wait. I have lots of design plans- one of which includes a rolling island! I love to move things around and repurpose whatever I can so I will use the island in the kitchen, living room, studio and that whopping big porch-room-thingy we added. 

We are on our way today to work on Six Little Acres- it’s about a 3.5 hour drive- and here’s what we plan to do: 

Finish flooring in the kitchen (We are ALMOST there!) Move fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave into their new home, then paint this room: the ceiling is primed and the walls are already cut in, thanks to our FSIL (y’all remember that means favorite son in law?) No? See him here! Flooring will happen here over the next few weekends. 

Psssst: here’s a secret news flash! THE HVAC GUY IS COMING TODAY! What what!?!?! Yes. We expect to push a button and have heat and air. It’s like the Flintstones moved to the Jetsons. 

Sing with me. OH HAPPY DAY! (Here’s your part: Oh happy day!) my turn: WHEN JESUS WALKED (you: When Jesus walked!) Me: OHHHHH WHEN HE WALLLLLLKKED now you sing that too- ok me : HE WASHED OUR SINS AWAY! 

We get to sing this part together: OH HAPPY DAY! 

Thanks for stopping by, thanks for trying to imagine how stinky that kitchen was (because now I know you’re almost as happy as I that it smells tons better) and thanks for singing with me! 

The biggest news today is that our two year old grandLittle Baby Wren starts another 3 rounds of chemo on Monday. I’ll be there. Y’all please pray for her – that the chemo will kill this cancer, irradiate that tumor and not affect any other part of her tiny body. Follow her page on FB at Hope For Wren. There’s a purple icon with a pink bird on it. 

Have a blessed day!

  1. Wow, it’s looking beautiful, and I greatly enjoyed singing “Oh happy day” with you this morning! (I’ll be singing “Oh happy day” even louder when sweet Wren is finally through with her treatment, and I know y’all will too!)

  2. I can’t explain how google led me to your project but I found it last night and have read the whole thing. Wow. I’m exploring a similar double wide on acreage.

    So the vinyl planks click together like laminate v. glue down planks. It looks good. Did you have much in the way of electrical and plumbing repairs? Did you have the old grey recalled water pipes? Praying for your precious grand daughter.


    1. Hi VAinVA, so happy you found us! Yes, the planks click in- precisely, not even some wiggle room. It’s so much like how jigsaw pieces fit perfectly- a bit off and you try again.
      The electrical as well as plumbing and HVAC has all been replaced. We replaced all the walls (and studs) so it’s completely rebuilt. Should we have built new? Probably, but it’s custom and we think will still be less money. Hire professionals! Sure wish we had! 😉Thank you so much for your prayers. ❤️


  3. Wow! I finally got a chance to look at your blog. We have been so busy lately. Kathy what a big difference! The kitchen everything looks beautiful! So so excited for you! I can imagine the smell lol! I will pray for Wren and your family. Looking forward to more updates! Take care my friend.
