Proceed With Caution...

I have learned an important lesson this week. My words are powerful... A simple thought took my kitchen from this...
But with the concrete re-poured, and appliances about to be moved in, and everything about to be put back together. And then, not realizing how seriously a passing comment would be, about the placement of the sink and the stupid utility box... My kitchen turned into this...
Completely gutted! What was I thinking! Drew is still trying to convince me how much better it will be now. I think he lies!
And the rest of my house looks like this. Ahhh! I am promised it will be back together Saturday... My sanity depends on that statement!
Ps. Check out some of the treasures we have unearthed during the remodel! True Harry Homeowner Craftsmenship! Can you see this totally unnecessary U-turn in the plumbing? On the right hand side of the piped the could connect together immediately. Instead the jut out to the left back up the wall, down and around again. Awesome!
Sorry this is a horrible picture, but I had to take a picture before it was hauled to the dump. This 2X4 was holding up the dryer vent in the living room. And as you can see a foot of it was charred from the heat of the dryer! Just waiting to ignite and burn tue house down. Yikes!


  1. WOW! Can't wait to see the finished product! Until then, I'm sure your new vacuum will be coming in handy, eh?

  2. good luck. i thought cody and i would buy a fixer upper but he knew he would be doing most of the fixing up and told me no. i can't wait to see the finished product. it will so be worth the work.
