This weekend C and I will be inspecting nooks and crannies for anything we want touched up or fixed by the crew. They really have done a great job, though, so I don't expect the list to be too long. In quite a few cases (um, the unsupported ceiling?) Gordon and Butch have noticed (and told us about) things that were possibly dangerous, or weren't going to work for some reason, or should be changed. They even told us our car registrations were overdue! So they've been pretty on top of everything.
Yesterday the hood installation was completed, and we also got windows:
|Hood has two-speed fan and lights--high speed is LOUD and powerful, but low speed is quiet enough you could hold a conversation|
|New window, no casing or trim yet|
|New window over sink|
Today was a crown molding/quarter round day, and for those of you concerned the laundry room wasn't getting any love, it now has a first coat of paint. I'd hoped one coat would do it, but once it dried it became clear it needs two. The fact is, painting this room is like putting eye shadow on an alligator; there is wall paper under the old yellow paint, and it is starting to bubble up and loosen. New paint is really a stopgap measure, but I do want it to look as nice as possible until it completely falls apart. In the end, it is just a laundry room, and bonus---it has a door!
|We're thinking of adding some open shelving on this wall, or maybe some fun art?|
|Hood with impressive crown|
|Oven cabinet with smaller crown--getting the oven cabinet and hood to work together on this was difficult!|
|Our new flue cover--we think he's fun!|
Have a great weekend! :-)
