Week 5: Kitchen Renova[tion]

The insulation was completed early in the week, along with some minor moves to electrical switches, outlets, and light sockets. And while the electrician was there, he got our overhead lights back on in the back of house, which we’ve been without for a few weeks now. Not fun showering in the dark!

They started the drywall on Friday, and came back to finish hanging it on Saturday. It took a little longer than expected, since they were trying to get the ceiling flush with the living room ceiling which is plaster.

Today they mudded and taped most of the drywall, so things are continuing to move along. Here are a few views of the foyer as well... 

As for Brian and I, he went on Friday to see the “stain guy” to try to get the color right for the cabinets. Not too orange, not too yellow, not too dark, not too light… kind of, sort of a honey color?

We also made a trip to Clayton Tile on Tuesday to order the tile backsplash! We went with the Crossville RetroActive Porcelain Stone in Seabreeze, in a 3 x 12 size. 

Also, a very happy 2nd birthday to our niece Emory! We had so much fun celebrating at a new favorite Mexican restaurant tonight!
