More DIY! August 29, 2006

So, I’m a few days behind in my blogging!  On Sunday, the hubby and I were able to finish the rest of the dining room up to the entrance to the kitchen… for those of you who don’t know what that means… we are now ready to start doing our kitchen.  On another plus side, I got paid yesterday for the textbooks I was working on as a side job.  That cash will go towards the kitchen so now the only obstacle in our way will be to get the correct cabinets, remove all our stuff in the kitchen, do the demolition and get my oh so wonderful Daddy to help us install the new ones :).

We already gave Daddy the measurements in the kitchen so he is working his wonders there to let us know what we can change, what needs to remain where it is and what we will need to buy to get the new cabinets installed.  We are well on our way to getting the floors finished. 

Whatever is left over from the “kitchen fund” will quickly be spent on baseboards and quarter-rounds so that the floors downstairs and in the landing will be officially finished.

You know no blog is complete without picture updates so here goes!:

As you can see, we moved the dining room table to be under the stairs to get to the floor… and Yoshi is a happy puppy wagging his tail 🙂

Its only fair that I post a picture of the hubby doing some of the cutting too se ya’ll don’t think I’m the only power tool beast in the house!

Look, I’m more than just a cutter, I can install the floor too!

Here the hubby installs two pieces of scrap to keep our edges safe until we get the kitchen done:

Here’s where we got up to… right to the entrance to the kitchen:
