I’m back at work this week, so about to head off home and see how Day 6 has gone! I can’t wait to walk through the door. But first, here’s where we ended last week. Our hardwood counter tops arrived (hurrah!!) They still need to be cut and fitted, but just seeing them in person makes me very happy. At the suggestion of my very clever mother, we’ve asked our builder to save the extra wood so that we can turn the spare pieces into cutting boards. Nice, right?
Our little breakfast bar is taking shape, and we’re thrilled with how it’s working. Now that it’s in, we are finalising our plans for bar stools and artwork.
Our wiring is finished and the new wall is up. I couldn’t believe what a difference that made – especially with the microwave mounted off the countertops.
AND this is the start of the view you get when you look in from the living room. Still loads of space for us to move around, but so much workspace to play with as well that we can’t believe how much larger and more functional it feels.
Will definitely share each day’s progress again this week – in theory we will have a ‘working’ kitchen by the end of the day on Wednesday. Fingers crossed the complications are all behind us, and from here forward it’s smooth sailing.
