It has been a whirlwind of dust and debris here. Hammering, drilling and sawing. The cloud is starting to settle as the dry wall is installed, primed and painted and the trim work is in place as of today. We still have more painting to do and the floor will remain unfinished until we do the rest of the kitchen over in February-March, but our new little room is almost done. I'll have to get a photo by daylight to show it off.
I was in the kitchen yesterday morning making breakfast and looking out the back windows when suddenly I realized that I can see the whole backyard now. It is really an amazing difference.
The cabinets are ordered and should arrive mid-February and we have just about settled on a cement tile floor pattern we both like. It is finally coming together. We are going to have to have a bunch of parties to show it off in the Spring.
