End in sight?

More work has been completed on our kitchen.

Drywall was installed on Dec 27 and was tapped and mudded the next week. The electricians also stopped by to make a few adjustments.


This week, the texture has been applied to the walls and ceilings. Because of the exceptionally damp weather, it took a little longer than usual for each application to dry.

On Monday, the primer will go on the walls and we can move on to the next stage, either Marmoleum or cabinet installation. I'm hoping for Marmoleum so that we can get the washer and dryer out of the living room and back into use! Just having the primer done will be a huge step. Once it is done, we can pull up the mud and dust encrusted paper and do a thorough cleaning. Right now it doesn't matter how much I clean our living areas, the dust just gets tracked right back in by Pandora and us. Speaking of Pandora; she says, "Let me in! Or at least clean this window!"

Oh! And the best development of the last two weeks is that we have a deck in progress! I'll write all about that when it is finished, but here is how it looks right now.

Very, very cool Heather!

P.S. Don't run out of money.

wow! you commented before I was even done, I think!

Thanks for the advice. We're just trying to do our part to keep the local economy humming. ;)

Oh, everything looks so good, Heather. I think you have the most expressive dog in the world -- loved that pic of Pandora. Looking at the picture of your counter, I've already picked out the spot for my chair -- right in the corner so I can lean against that partial wall as you pour me another delicious cup of coffee!


Hello! I'm Heather and I'm a bit manic about Tacoma.

I'll probably be blogging about my experiences in Tacoma as they relate to the environment (natural and built), social (in)justice, community building, economic development, bio-diesel, public transit, biking, gardening, home improvement, food & wine, and my little family (me, my husband, one dog, one cat). This is my first attempt at writing a blog - so please bear with me.
