It’s getting hard to continue the project’s numbering scheme. After the first week, many of the work days have not been contiguous and sometimes not entire days. So today’s “day” number is somewhat arbitrary. I don’t really care because, whatever day it is, plumbing was connected in the kitchen!
For the first time since the project began we have a fully-functional kitchen. Al, of A&G Home Improvement, came in with his associate Dan to connect our plumbing and we are most appreciative of their Saturday afternoon efforts!
With the new countertop in place and the sink installed, the two attached the garbage disposal, drain pipes, the wonderful new faucet, and connected the dish washer. Everything’s working now — hurrah! We can stop using paper and plastic dishes, won’t dry our hands washing, and can cook real food. Al & Co. will return on Tuesday to install the trim moulding for the new floors, the one remaining cabinet unit, and on Wednesday will put up the glass tile backsplash. Once grouted (next Friday) the project should be complete! Now the condo will be worth way more than we could possibly sell it for. These improvements, however, are for us.
Sorry! No pictures today but what was done, while it was good work, is largely that “invisible” stuff that counts for so much but wasn’t very photogenic.
