ahhhhhh  OK stay centered – breathe, can’t find stuff but all the floors are done. [strand woven solid click bamboo natural – iFloor.com].

the new cast iron gas stove is in [Olympia Fireplace and Spa] – wow, it’s actually warmer out in the front rooms now. honestly we used to wear coats, hats and gloves because of the 15 degree difference. Notice the slate tiles under the free standing fireplace. also painted the walls and ceilings in all the rooms – burnt out a bit, I was trying to keep ahead of the contractors laying the floor.

Tiara 1 cast iron fireplace

new door with sidelights that open will be installed on Monday. this goes to the “enclosed” porch/former deck. New window for over the sink…  Ikea kitchen cabinets – talk about a puzzle.

Ikea kitchen in a box or many boxes!

picked out counter top, tile for kitchen floor and back splash – still have to order but need to pack up the kitchen first. can’t demolish ugly kitchen until the appraiser inspects for refinance maybe next week. then it’s sledge time!!!!!

soon to be EX kitchen

Decided to put a convection oven in the small “island” and a 5 burner gas range on the counter instead of going with the normal gas cook stove.  also a stainless farmhouse kitchen sink to match the stainless appliances….

So it’s living in chaos with belongs scattered and boxed but the end will be soooooooooo beautiful.


now I’m wicked behind on the sketchbook project!!!!
