I will take a few minutes to show you the visible changes to our ‘new to us’ house. But before that I would like to say to anyone reading this entry I will soon return, haha! The work is winding down. The pictures do not show the work that went on under the house.
Okay here is the kitchen before:
I was most proud of the floor work. There was a 50+ year old 1 1/2” sag in the floor. It took about three days, but slowly we brought it up to level. I wanted to keep the old white cabinets, but Sherry insisted on new Oak cabinets. I am glad she did. She also insisted on a dishwasher (besides me, she said this one was getting pretty old to trust with our fine china! Remember when it used to come in washing powder!)
Sherry stacked the drawers to stain and apply the poly while I did the cabinets:
I get in a hurry and used 3” screws to hold the doors open so I could do all the finishing at one time without removing the doors.
Below I am leveling the final base cabinet.
Oh Sherry love the addition of the commode to the kitchen!
That is the Kitchen where the most work was put in. It has been fun, usually my day ended at 2100 (9PM).
Shirl came over and started the yard work just after we moved over here. She said, ‘y’all are gonna have a large wild area, I said I sure hope so, and hope the neighbors do not complain.
This is what we call our patio area, it is in the shade and there seems to always be a nice breeze. My equipment was set up here and stayed out, no problems with vandals.
To go back to the beginning, my first call was to my buddy Sticky. Below he is telling me what I am gonna need.
Here he is doing it:
Even before Sticky, I had to take down a large boat port that stood where We wanted our RV to sit.
Enough for tonight so as not to bore you too much.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by the Shipslog. Next entry I will show the bathroom Sherry wanted reworked.
We have sorta made a decision, not sure we are ready for roots yet? Maybe? We do have a son who thinks he wants to rent it. uh oh!
