kitchen remodel- part 2
My kitchen sink was hauled off today. I couldn't even bring myself to document the event. The reality of what that means set in and I retreated to my bedroom for the rest of the day... with visions of bathtub duty in the very near future.
Yes, I hunkered down for the day... very thankful for my companion, Mac. Occasionally I would venture out with camera in hand, snap a few shots, grab an apple, a bottle of water and then back to my Mac.
At times the noise was deafening. But guess what? I am really & truly loving every moment. Because it's happening! We're doing something! Ok, so Randy and the crew are doing something. But the sounds of progress make me so very happy.
Wow, I can't believe that's my former kitchen up there!
And just when I thought I could handle most anything, the heating & cooling guys show up to remove all the old duct work. Which is code for... exposed attic... and mass amounts of insulation falling onto my kitchen floor.
And seriously, you can't contain this fluff. IT'S EVERYWHERE! I thought I had sealed off all the important areas. But who was I kidding! You can't! I opened up my pantry closet hours later and everything was covered in a layer of insulation.
They literally filled dozens & dozens of leaf-bags full of insulation, that will later be dumped back in the attic at the completion of our new kitchen.
And how adorable is my handy handsome husband!
I'm taking him out to dinner tonight. My treat. Because he's awesome. And because I don't have a kitchen anyway. Oh, but don't tell him that. Let him believe it's cuz I love & appreciate him more than anyone else on the planet. Cuz really I do.
