The cabinet-makers were here Tuesday and Wednesday to install our new cabs!! I can’t believe they did as much as they did in two days. And one electrician was back (that’s him on the right) to cut yet another huge hole in the ceiling. One of the original recessed lights was too close to the new cabinets and had to be moved.
Here she is, looking all purdy and ready for countertops and floors ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥:
This is the new smaller window we made out of the two low, separated, larger ones. We love the unobstructed view and the way it almost looks like a painting now. No screens, window bars, or wall divider cutting off the view now, and plenty of room for cabinets on either side and counter underneath now:
Love the lines and the little details!
The colors are all different on these cabinet shots because it was a rainy day and the sun keep peeking out then hiding.
Let’s see, what else? The stucco folks worked on the outside of the new window. Hopefully they got in what they needed before the rain started:
And the tiling/flooring guy worked on the powder room. I think that room will be tiled, floored, and toileted by early next week (fingers crossed).
Next up this week: the kitchen counter templating will be done (today), then flooring will start.
Oh, and we’re still living out of the temporary kitchen. We made Rice Krispie Treats in the crockpot the other night and they were fun! Thanks to Judy (a blog commenter) for the suggestion. They came out tan, by the way, not white like stovetop krispie treats, so Ree renamed them Golden Krispies. Smart girlie.
PS: If you haven’t had a chance to enter yet, our “Sweet Moon Baby” and “Mei-Li and the Wise Laoshi” book review and giveaway is open until May 1. Also, the winner for the Hostess $100 giveaway was Sunshyn V. I updated the post with the winner’s name, but I don’t think anyone ever looks at the old post, so I’ll do a separate winner’s post (the way I used to) from here on out.
