Kitchen Progress IV

WEEK FOUR

Included:
  • Painting the ceiling
  • Painting crown molding
  • Building in around the chimney
  • Drywall of second half
  • Electrical
  • Taping, mudding, sanding
  • Priming and painting colour
  • Installing crown molding
  • Building second half of all cabinets
  • Levelling and securing uppers and lowers
  • Installing coverpanels and doors
  • Installing microwave range

This is where Ben started on Tuesday morning (he took the day off) and got a lot accomplished in one day!

The drywall suddenly made the room feel smaller and tighter, but in a good way!
Watching Daddy work.
Using clamps my Opa made. I think he would have been kind of tickled to see them still used by his grandkids.
Cutting the cover panel. Can you see where something went wrong?
We used the couch cushions to lay the panel on so we could cut it easier....and then someone *ahem* forgot to move them over before the last cut. Oh well, good thing it's an old couch. We'll duct tape the cushions and turn them over.
This sociable boy just wants to be where the action's at!
Levelling the cabinets and installing an extra support rail along the bottom.

Pretty, shiny microwave, no? It doubles as a range too!
This is where it's at by the end of week four.

We're missing all our "short" doors for the sink, and above the microwave and fridge. They're out of stock at the moment. Oh well, living without doors isn't something I'm not used to.
My pantry and other cupboards are stocked again. No more running to the dining room or downstairs for food supplies.
