Pulling off the #panelling on the outer wall and adjoining corners in preparation for the #drainage work to be done I our #basement. Was hoping to be doing this in preparation for basement finishing. 🙁
So last night the kitchen flooring got done so today we got gas installed for the stove, and Internet installed. My brother-in-law helped me get our appliances moved in. I finished hooking up all the appliances tonight. Things are starting to feel a little less overwhelming. I do still have to finish the floor in the hallway, and there is a huge pile of junk in the garage that needs cutting down to be picked up on Monday. I so can’t wait for move in day and us finally just being here and getting settled in.
So tonight was officially the first night of flooring.Had a little help from my father-in-law, but the end was just me working on it and it was slow going. I’m not sure how I’m going to get it all done by Friday. So tired tonight, glad tomorrow is a resting day for my 5K training.
Today I needed to finish up cutting down the cabinet doors, the last part needed to make room for the microwave above the stove. I got the table saw out for the first time since selling our house almost 2 years ago. It’s been sitting in storage. I got them cut down by chopping the tops off. Then I used my father-in-law’s router to get the cabinet edge trimmed so they fit in the new reduced opening. I’ll be honest the sanding, mudding, and painting things are my least favorite thing to do. Anytime I get to build something new, or fix something, that’s when I have the most fun with these remodeling projects. I’ll be finishing out the day with the not so fun…
Vanessa picked up an oscillating multi-tool for me today so I could get the cabinet above the stove modified to fit the new microwave. Had to make a run for a second blade to tackle the few nails. Overall this is a slick tool. Got to have the right tool for the job on these projects. ?
