Our Kitchen last week, and now:
(You can see Erica standing back admiring her days work!)
Seeing the before/after pics of the kitchen makes this weekend's work all worthwhile!
Ken came over yesterday to help tile the kitchen floor. We would've finished if we were not a box short on tiles.. :( Kel's picked up another box this morning, so we'll finish that tonight. Stay tuned for pics on the completed floor!
We been prepping the kitchen for the tiles this past week. While patching up all the holes we put in the wall and ceiling and getting new drywall up on the new frame, there seems to be one common theme; nothing is straight. Certain sections of the wall/ceiling would be thicker than other sections and this has make my job very unpleasant. It is taking me twice as long to shim everything so they are nice and straight.
It took us almost a week but we have completed 90% of hte drywalling, taped and mudded of the kitchen walls and ceiling. Hopefully we will have some cabinets up but the end of this week!

Right: New dining room window looking out into the backyard. Doesn't it look like a big painting?
Left: Big window in the office that looks out the front of the house.
Right: Ensuite bathroom frosted pane, so we wouldn't need curtains and it'll have light shining in all day.
Left: Current door and window to backyard. They've cut the hole in the wall to pour in the cement base. Waiting for that to dry before converting it to a sliding patio door.
Right: One of our basement windows that look out the front of the house. You can see the house across from us, as well as the little old lady that sat outside watching the window guys work.

The window guys are going to come back tomorrow to seal the window edges with foam, install our new front door, patio door, and fix the trim. I wonder if they'll finish tomorrow.
