The Most Boring Pictures Ever

Not too much progress to show yet, although there is a great deal of drilling and pounding and people on ladders making holes in the ceiling. There are new recessed lights going into several rooms and hallways--the kitchen, and the workroom/studio, and the back bathroom too. It will be amazing to see what we're doing! This house has always been very dark, partly due to its orientation to the sun and partly to the size and location of the windows. We've done our best with lamps but that only goes so far!

These are the sketches of the new kitchen cabinets. I mean, how boring, right? Pictures of black-and-white sketches! It will be fun to see how they compare to the finished cabinets.

These are actually the working drawings that are pinned up on the wall as a guide to the plumbers, electricians, and other tradesmen who are going to be installing stuff.
So these are views of:
The south and west walls, with the range and refrigerator;
The north and east walls, with the sink in front of the opening to the studio/workroom;
and the Butler's Pantry, which will go in the former mudroom between the kitchen and the back bathroom. This will be a good place to stash baking equipment and perhaps display punch bowls!

It's so exciting! I can't wait to see it when it's done. Just remember, it will be worth all of the inconvenience/hassle/ frustration/mess etc. I've been wanting to remodel my house so, for now, I'll live vicariously through you. :)
