Things a moving along in the kitchen. The day-to-day changes are less dramatic than they were and there is more wait time for things like drywall compound to dry and cabinets to arrive, but I'm told we're ahead of schedule so I'm happy.
Here's a recap of the last week and a half.
Day 8 and 9: Drywall
Everything is now closed up and the rebuilding begins.
Day 10: Floor
So far, this has been my favourite day.
Gorgeous eh? It's bamboo, natural colour, vertical "grain" (can grass have a grain?). It's sturdy, but soft and warm underfoot and is definitely not ugly ceramic tile.
Day 11: Plaster and CABINETS!
And our first glitch. Can you see it?
Because there's a lot of duct work and funny little jogs in the transition from the kitchen to the dining room, there was a bit of a debate about how big the threshold should be. The cabinets decided for us and Kenny is building out the wall this week. It means some fiddling with the crown moulding in the dining room, but I'm sure you see this has to be done.
So far, this has been the only issue. Really, I can't complain.
More cabinets. The brick will be completely covered. I love how they built a special cupboard just to hide it.
Day 12: Lower cabinets
I even have pot drawers!
Apparently there will be little cupboards over the window. I confess we let the contractor decide on a lot of these things and didn't ask a lot of questions. I think we're just happy to have something functional, but I'm loving these extra touches.
Day 13 Day of Rest
The remaining cabinetry isn't ready so today was a day off.
Today I believe my pantry arrives. I also think I hit the point where I'm a bit tired of not having a kitchen. We're at day 17 of that!
