The floor guy came yesterday to measure the moisture content in the wood and the manufacturer will let us know Monday when it can be laid down. The wood is patiently “acclimating” so that it can be installed over the radiant (water heated) apparatus with the appropriate amount of humidity. I, however, am not so patient.
After the flooring is in we can install our refrigerator, dishwasher and bar appliances. My dishwasher drawer is getting a workout as I have started to stock the cabinets with treasures emptied from boxes hidden in the attic for the past year and everything is getting a quick wash. We are happy with the layout of the kitchen; let’s hope there is enough room for all my pretty things. Lewis makes fun of me and says that I have a “dish fetish” but I just can’t help myself. I love beautiful serving pieces. Yes, it tastes the same off a paper plate but the presentation is (almost) as important as the quality of the food.
We haven’t given much thought to the outside of the house as it’s an ugly 80’s A-frame and we figured that someday we will do something about that but we decided to replace the master and office sliding doors and windows upstairs and stucco the entire house. There is dust and piles of stucco EVERYWHERE. I’ll never have the modern, boxy look that I love but maybe we can add a façade to cover up the “triangle”. When we started tearing out the “barn look” on the outside of the house we discovered that there were water lines hiding in the protruding stucco and that’s why they were there. Ugh, who knew! The Money Pit project continues….
Someone brought up the movie The Money Pit with Tom Hanks. I remember it being a funny movie but now that we are living it we will have to rent it to see if it still is as funny. Probably not. As for the water line, who would have thought to run it on the outside of the house and hide it in the decorative trim. Just proves you don’t know until you start digging. Anyway looking forward to the Kegerator being installed SOON.
What project did you get into that you hadn’t expected during a remodel?
