It’s all in the details….my sanity, that is.

If there’s one thing I’ve found to be true throughout this process it’s that details keep me going.  When progress stops, contractors fail, and all hope seems lost, I can easily lose myself in revisiting the details that will *someday* fill the kitchen…the nursery…the house.

Somehow, that calms my nerves, eases the tension, and leaves me ready to face the next day.

Give me a pencil and a sheet of graph paper, and I’m set.

——————————–

Here’s a look at where we are now.  Beachboy has about 4 feet to go until all three spaces have flooring.  Alas, work won’t resume again until Monday.  This weekend brings with it out of town guests.  That leaves us just a few fleeting weekends to go.  8 weeks until we’re “due.”  I’m hoping for a late baby.  How often do you hear a momma say THAT?

The bad news?

We have a monster leak in the kitchen….and it’s U.G.L.Y.

 

The good news?

The plan for the new kitchen (since we have to gut) is ready to go!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a quick look at the current plan.

-Ramsjo Cabinets

-Open shelving for my cookbooks (yay!)

-Wood counters (a nod to our cottage)

– Marble Backsplash

-Farm Sink

-Mixed Hardware Styles

-Sconces to brighten the place up

 

Really, what makes me smile?

1. Getting rid of the water problem, rotten cabinets and all

2. Putting the dishwasher in a location where you can use it and the range (or it and a drawer) at the same time

3. Cabinets that don’t have attack drawers that fall out on your feet!!

4. Hiding the seldom-used microwave

5. FOOD STORAGE (we have none, presently)…oh, let’s just say storage in general while we’re at it  😉

 

Let the work begin!  Next week will be spent working on the kitchen, if things go as planned (around here, they never do…)
