PICTURES! I still can’t find the battery and charger for the camera so I bought another one. :)
Here’s our progress on the kitchen remodel so far. It has been about 6 weeks since we started demo.

This is the working side (as opposed to the pantry side. Island cabinets just starting to go in. Had to place them to spot the island range hood. Blue tape on the floor is to get them back where they are now when we fix them to the floor. My wife and I just hung the range hood tonight. Have to get the ducting and electrical hooked up and get the stainless steel chimney cut down.

Then there’s the pantry side…

The “spare wood” up on top is extra shelves. We haven’t got to the details of organizing this yet. Heck, I still have tools and junk on 3 shelves :) I still have to make all the doors (18 of them) and there’s trim work to do everywhere, but once we get the range hood hooked up, they’ll also install the gas line for the cook top and I’ll plunk that puppy into a piece of 3/4 inch plywood until I get the island counter top installed. That’s probably a couple of weeks out yet.

It’s a lot of work. A lot of details. A lot of fussin’ and fiddlin’ ‘cause nothing in this house is straight. Not surprised, but it sure adds to the fun when virtually everything is a custom fit.
