day 5 - moving right along

it's hard to believe the kitchen renovation has only been going on for 5 days!

on one hand, the refrigerator in the living room and the make-shift kitchen in the office seem like it's been going on too long and i don't look forward to 3 more weeks of this.

making grilled cheese for C on the floor...

on the other hand, things on the other side of the tarp are moving along quicker than i thought and i'm really impressed with the progress.

so, here's a little update in pictures

remember, you can click on any picture to make it bigger.  i'm currently in the process of trying to figure out how to make my pictures bigger without look distorted.  any help would be MUCH appreciated.
*edit - THANK YOU JEN!  pictures are bigger now!!  =)*

i mean - i'm impressed!

drywall is being hung tomorrow, shaun thinks we could be painting by sunday and then the floor!

the cabinets and counter tops are already in and just waiting to be installed.

he is chomping at the bit!

really quick though, lets go back to demo day.

i wanted to show you something kind of cool that they found when ripping out the cabinets

6 records for a penny!

back in 1978, paula mcintosh successfully choose 6 awesome records (3 kiss albums, elvis, tom t. hall greatest hits & linda ronstadt), inserted her 1968 penny and anxiously awaited her records.

unfortunately, it seems this fell behind a cabinet, never to be mailed.

shaun was pretty psyched about this find.

i just feel bad for paula mcintosh...

there was no online tracking in 1978 to find out when your records will arrive. i can just imagine her being 14 yrs. old, excited about this awesome deal and then just waiting and waiting and waiting...

did anyone join BMG music club at that age? those cd's i sent off for where some of my first cds ever. and i couldn't wait to get them in the mail!

poor paula...

OK - moving on

hopefully the next post will reveal even more progress!

my goal now is to pick a paint color.

any suggestions? i want something in the green grayish brown family.

easy, right?
