Progress and Dust

The Great Kitchen Re-do continues and we are making progress! The walls are sheetrocked and ready for primer/paint, and the awful plastic barrier has been taken down. You can see how open the new space will be, with the wall between the old kitchen and the front room having been taken down (for good).

I should probably also take a picture of the demolition/construction dust that lays thickly over everything in the house now! I spent nearly all day yesterday trying to clean the second floor, but that dust is going to take some special elbow grease to get rid of once and for all. It's in every nook and cranny imaginable.

While the kitchen is being constructed, Tim is also working on one of the basement bedrooms, preparing for a new egress window and, eventually, new carpet and paint. His efforts yesterday somehow resulted in great clouds of dust billowing merrily out of the heat ducts -- we're still not sure how that happened! Needless to say, I was less than thrilled at the sight.

The cabinets and countertops are due to be installed early next week, and then we're on the home stretch. Stay tuned!

Very cool that you're blogging! It's a lot of fun and can be a time-drain, but it's a great way to really say things you'd like to say!

VERY envious of your kitchen project. Love that nice big fridge.

(Cringing) So! the name link will take you to my own blog. Feel free to disagree with things i say there, though - honest discourse is a good thing. 8~)
