Today was the second day of the Great Kitchen Project. It started off right away with drywall for the ceiling going up, followed by a whole lot of other things — much of it drywall work in the space. New wiring was connected to the electrical panel, removed was nearly all carpeting in the living room, up the stairs, and in the second floor hallway! Oh, didn’t I tell you? We’re having the awful, old carpeting replaced with modern laminate “hardwood” and I think I’m looking forward to that about as much as the new kitchen! The stairway treads were trimmed to accommodate the new laminate kits that will fit over them. Of course, all this meant complete disruption of the main floor — I space I found reasonably comfortable from which to monitor activity, answer questions, and serve as doorman. Cabinets are set to arrive tomorrow morning.
