Kitchen Update

Kitchen ceiling ripped out. 

Old cabinets ready to go to Charlotte Yarn.

Plastic everywhere because . . .

John is shredding plaster.

How to make a new ceiling.   This is a panel lifter.

You are only as good as your tools. 

My job is to clean up each night.  (I can hear my children laughing at that.)  No cooking, no water.  No water is really bad.

But John has loaned us a sink.

Wall board is now up.

Crown molding going up.

Cabinets are in town and come soon.

The process hasn’t been nearly as bad as I envisioned.  Of course, we haven’t done the “sand all the mud on the wallboard and ceiling” thing yet.  Sue, my designer and major domo of the whole project, is a marvel.  She anticipates what I want and really keeps me from doing something stupid.  She also handles Steve like a dream.  John and Mark have been wonderful.  Having only one person working on each thing may take a little more time, but it also means we get to know each other and can more easily help each other through the hard parts.  How many builders do you know who would loan you their sink?  And they can do anything!

I just train the dogs and make stuff.  My kind of work.

More later–

  1. How exciting, Jane! I hope John, Jeff and Sue get to see your pics and comments. Kitchens may not be your thing but oh how nice to have the light, open space and a happy spouse!
