• I only forgot to run the wires through the back of the box twice before punching them down. 🤬

  • Countertops came in this week.

  • Skookum hard drive platters.

  • The other appliances also got delivered.

  • Our cathedral to food preservation getting installed

  • Knobs on the cabinets. We also have an end panel on the island that was made wrong, so we just have it temporarily in place until its replacement arrives.

  • Good progress on setting the cabinets. Apparently our floors are not very level. 1 1/2” drop from the near to far side.

  • First coat is down. The fumes in the house are a bit overwhelming.

  • We have cabinets!

  • Can you tell we were meant for each other?

  • Checking out our skating rink.

  • Kitchen update: they framed out the bay window during the spell of warm weather and got it sealed back up before the cold hit. Drywall is hung and being finished, and they are ready to start patching in the floor ready to refinish next week before the cabinets arrive on Friday.

  • On that note, we have a Kitchen Aid trash compactor and 30” gas Supra range we won’t be using in the new kitchen if anyone is interested.

  • Monday they frame out the back wall for the new bay. Big LVLs for the header. All the ceiling electrical work is done, so they will get that drywalled right after. Last weekend the stove can stay in place. T-2 weeks to cabinets arriving. The goal is to get all the dirty work done so they can refinish the floors and be ready to set the lowers when they arrive.

  • Skating rink is open!

  • Always amazes me how much this shrinks during the winter.

  • Single pane windows don’t work too well when it gets this cold.

  • Sam is practicing rolling around where the new island will go.

  • Takes forever, but the print quality on the finest setting is pretty good. The bottom support is a pita to clean up, though.

  • Operations have been moved to the living room.

  • They’ve left the sink and stove for us to use, but otherwise the kitchen is all cleared out.

  • It definitely opens up the space.

  • Can start to see what it will feel like opened up. Lots of tracing electrical runs today apparently.

  • Wall is about ready to come down now.
