and how! we got lucky & had a window of opportunity this week to have our windows installed. so nacho began by tearing out the dry wall for the East wall last Sunday. Terry's guys came over Wed & Thurs to do the install and replace our siding. we made yet another trip to Ikea yesterday and we think we have the kitchen finalized. no, not ordered but all planned out. it will be another 3 weeks before we get back up there to place the actual order. sounds like we're moving right along? not so fast. i'm still trying to make a decision on flooring. more on that later! let's enjoy this sliver of progress though!
