Cabinets Done

Stix n Brix, NC

I’m on night shift for a few more nights but wanted to share the progress made last week on the remodel.  It was nice to have our MH there to relax a few minutes before going to sleep and even nicer in the morning when we ate our cereal at the dinette.  We had the blind open and all we saw was the woods just a couple of feet from us.  We finished Thursday morning by cutting the counter top and fitting the kitchen sink in there.  Now Odie can call the plumber and electrician to finish their work.

Here’s some shots of the work.  There is still much trim work to be done along with the baseboard.  I’m sorry we couldn’t get to that but Nick and Becca recently went their separate ways so the deadline date fluctuates.  Most people have a watch dog but this grasshopper is guarding the back door also.

Smudge liked to help by telling me to pick her up all the time.  By the end of the week, she was one dog-tired poodle.

Here’s a look at the flooring in the bathroom.  There will be a threshold strip between rooms and of course, more trim work.

Gin and her Pop did a lot of the work while I was there for moral support.  Sometimes three people were too many but I was there to give a hand when I could.  They worked well together because they are two peas in a pod.

This is what the kitchen looked like when we left.  The range will be moved over to be under the microwave and a washer/dryer will be under the window to the right.  A fridge will go beside the range.  The building is 20x24 feet so it’s a nice size small getaway.

We have about caught up on our sleep, and Gin’s thumb is better.  The nail is black and all the dead skin has peeled off.  It’s still quite sensitive so I imagine the bone was chipped.  She’s able to play video games now so it’s not too bad.

Well, I’ve got to hurry off to work tonight so everyone be safe and enjoy your day.  Later…

What a nice job on the kitchen. Think of what that would have cost if a contractor did it. Nothing better than doing it yourself and saving big bucks!

Good that Gin's thumb is healed, nothing worse than going into video game withdrawal! ;c)

Hang in there, Syl, those night shifts are tough, trying to adjust your sleep patterns is really hard.
Hope you get back to a normal schedule soon.
