Day 21

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

The tile man came this morning and I was surprised to see Greg back – he was running a snake through the kitchen drain out to the  big one in the middle of the bank.  Plus Brad and also the plumbing inspector – hot and cold running men in the house.  I had to wait to see the tile until I came back from my hair cut.

Gives the wall and counter a little accent – I really like it.

It goes all around the counters – the tile guy is Russian and since business isn’t up as much, he seems a bit gloomy.  Otherwise he is a nice young man.

I may not have the old dishwasher and stove, but the porch doesn’t look much different.

At the end I taking taking the picture from, there is still the pieces of the old floor and the old back door.  Sometimes it looks as if we live in rural West Virginia.

Brad is putting in the partitions that go on either side of the fridge.

I love the kitchen and certainly it is such a luxury to have a sink and water again.

You can see the framework he built to hold the upper cabinet while he fastens it to the wall.

Now when you come from the dining room, there is a bit of a wall.

This is how it looks from the doorway.

New range hooked up and the backsplash, plus the doors are on again, though the shelves are in the living room.

The upper cabinet is now up and with its doors.  The pantry has its door again.  Doors go on and off very frequently though out the process, but I can still see how wonderful the kitchen looks.

At the end of the day, the porch looks so much more spacious.  The box down in the corner is what he made to help him put the upper cabinets up and stay while he attached the.

No saws or saw horses in sight – he does such a great job of cleaning up before he leaves,

No more old floor or back door.  He managed to full the back of his truck with the big carpenter’s bags, the old floor, the door and who knows what else.

Still stuff in the living room, all the shelves are in front of the desk.

Before he left, Brad asked if we wanted him to take up the cardboard on the kitchen floor,  It is down there to protect the floor while work is still being done.  I said to leave it, I am tempted to leave it there permanently so I won’t ever have to clean the floor.

  1. It is coming together beautifully!! But, it won’t work, leaving the cardboard down so you don’t have to ever clean the floor–eventually you’ll have to replace the cardboard, as it will get dirty and wear out!! I think your real floor is much prettier, anyway!!

    • A girl can dream. One of the things I told the interior designer I wanted was a floor that didn’t show dirt and was easy to clean. I will admit it has been a bit hot without the kitchen blind, the sun comes straight into the window and poor Brad was really uncomfortable Friday.


Tell me what you think, I would enjoy knowing what you have to say.
