The Walls Are Coming Down! Leslye Gale's Kitchen Renovation

When I married my husband, Ben, I was lucky enough to move into his "bachelor pad". When Ben bought this house more than 30 years ago, it had two bedrooms and one bathroom (and I hear pink siding on the outside). Over the years, Ben's done a wonderful job expanding. Our 1950's ranch now has four bedrooms, three renovated bathrooms and a beautiful glassed in porch. However, when our house was built, "open concept" living had not been invented. We have lots of small rooms and a very outdated kitchen. That's all about to change!

We'd love to take you on this journey with us. We've hired KBF Design Gallery, a full-service, interior design and remodeling company with one fundamental goal: to make our vision for our home a reality.    

KBF’s owner, Keith Vellequette, has been providing the greater Orlando area with custom kitchen and bathroom remodeling design services under the KBF name for over 28 years. Along with his amazing designer, Melissa, and the entire KBF team, we're ready to bring our 1953 suburban ranch house into the 21st century. 

We're taking out two walls. One of them was originally an outer wall and the other a load bearing wall. 

When we're done we'll have a completely open concept living area, with one great room perfect for entertaining and for quiet nights at home.  


The KBF team has been working with us for months, designing, permitting and offering amazing, original ideas, like re-configuring and dry walling our back porch, turning it into added living space.. 

I would love for you to follow us on this amazing journey and will even ask for your thoughts on some of our final design details along the way (i.e. the back splash & appliances, paint colors) 

As a cook and a confessed homebody, this renovation is a dream come true and hopefully will inspire some of you. 

Follow our progress at:  and of course on the air with me and Chad every morning on Magic 1077 between 5 and 10 AM!

But first we've got to clear all of this out!!!

The walls are set for demo is just a few days!
