Kitchen renovation for the empty nesters

Written by: Sarah J. Dills

Mike and Nancy lived in their Palm Harbor home with their three children for 28 years.

“Once the kids started moving out, we started looking at the lifestyle we really wanted. We have a beach house in Clearwater, but we really wanted to live in the city too. Tampa gave us the best of both worlds,” Mike explains of their move.

Mike and Nancy decided to move to the Harbour Island area of Tampa. “It’s a really neat environment,” Mike says. “There are water shuttles that have stops at the convention center and restaurants. It’s got a really neat vibe.”
