Okay, let's see if I can stay awake long enough to get this written and posted.
Today was one of those days when we got 403 little things done, but there's no BIG progress to show for it.
Yesterday I put three coats of poly on the baseboard moldings for the living room which got installed today. It rained all day yesterday, but we fired up the wood stove in the garage and with the big exhaust fan running on low, working in there was no problem.
We had to take some of the trim around doors off to get the flooring on so that got trimmed to the new correct size and put back on today.
It was Monday so, of course, I had to get the laundry done. A basketful of ironing is still waiting for me though.
B was here and we talked over the final plans for the new top portion of the above unit which will hold our TV, stereo, DVD player, etc. She was planning to build it in her shop, but now is thinking she may build it here. It will go from the top of the unit up to meet the book boxes (shelves) above and fasten together as one unit. This might be kinda tricky building it off site since the measurements have to be exact.
We want to put the fireproof brick on the left side of this same cabinet since it will be closest to the wood stove.
Oh, yeah, I don't think I ever mentioned that the extra brick we had to order did arrive, well packed and not one brick broken, and that corner is finally finished.
Hunh. Looks like a big shower stall, doesn't it?
But back to the side of the cabinet . . .
After (a gourmet) dinner (of scrambled eggs) tonight, Papa Pea and I bit the bullet and even though we sure didn't feel like it, we got all the brick for that area measured and cut and ready to be put on tomorrow.
We've been living with living room furniture . . .
. . . (and various other things) in the kitchen for about two weeks now. I wonder if we'll ever get any semblance of normal order back around here?
