The main reason there haven't been more kitchen pictures? There hasn't been much kitchen progress. Don't get me started. Suffice to say, that things have been moving, well, what I would call s l o w l y.

The rest of the floor came up last week, and the bottom cabinets were removed.

Hubbo had a great time with the mortar that was under the ceramic tile.

A sheet wall was erected, then a wall of 2x4s (it looked like we were going to put back up the wall), and slowly, over several days, the beams that are transferring the load to the other walls went in.

Then the sheet wall came down.

Sheetrocking has begun. Things are still moving slowly. I thought we'd be starting to install the cabinets by now. Hahaha.


  1. Isn't it a law of physics that all house projects have to go much slower than anticipated? Just be glad you didn't anticipate this speed - because then think how slow it'd be!

  2. Poor thing - believe me I know the kitchen woes!

  3. Blech! Remodeling is no fun.... but it'll be great in the end, right? Right.

  4. Isn't it funny how it always takes longer than you think? (Okay, maybe "funny" isn't the right word) Hang in there - it will be so worth it in the end.

    Yeah! Progress is progress! It's gonna be so great when it's done. Jon and I will come visit when it's finished.... :)

  6. Progress in any project moves on its own time schedule. Just keep telling yourself, "It's going to be beautiful, it's going to be great, it's going to be fantastic...." It will become your new mantra. I am looking forward to seeing the finished product!

  7. Contractor Time is a whole other dimension from regular, person-who-must-live-in-the-house time. I think they are issued special watches and everything.

    You will forget some of the pain after the kitchen is all done and beautiful, but I know it takes a long time to get to that point. In the meantime, you are allowed to buy as much yarn as you like, and hopefully you are enjoying many nice meals out, without having to clean up!
