there's really not that much to report. since we're waiting on the flooring, we can only do so much. we did pick up the cabinets from IKEA just over a week ago. so they've been sitting in my drive way for now. i like to call it Kitchen In A Can! my sister can appreciate that!
never let it be said that i'd hold up progress cuz i helped load this even with the monkey pox i was carrying that day!
nacho is trying to do anything at all at this point, so he started exposing the header between the dining room & living room this weekend.
Tucker will be glad to know, that header is coming out & going up! so we're raising that whole opening up to be flush with the ceiling like it should have been done to begin with. it's really in prep for a bigger change: the living room floor will come out to be even with the dividing wall. again, like it should have been done to begin with. and part of that opening (on the right in this photo) will be taken up by the banquet seating - you'll have to check my previous post & Sketch-Up drawing to see what i mean. so we're really excited about that.
other than that, the guys came & installed the drywall in the window area last week. what a mess! i don't mean the construction guys, i mean nacho's attempt to clean up their drywall dust! ugh!
