Julie and I as well as the designer are getting a little closer on the kitchen layout as well as the bathroom colors. Actually I have no interest in the “color scheme” but the efficiency of the kitchen is of interest. I like efficiency and cheap while Julie likes pretty and more pretty ($$). Luckily we’ve been able to easily compromise and actually we’ve been pretty much on the same page with most things. Plus it’s been fun working and making decisions with Julie. I was totally expecting this to be the typical husband and wife battle ground area. I’m somewhat laughing thinking that maybe this is so easy because the construction part has been a migraine.
