    What did you do today?

    No. It wasn't offered with these cabinets but that's okay because Ruby doesn't like them anyway. Ruby and I design together. My input is mostly for construction, structure, sturdiness and code while her input is according to some master plan in her head. Somehow, it comes together and we end up...

    We have come to the same conclusion!

    What did you do today?

    Yes, I considered the vertical alignment. The tops and base cabs came out even in this spot. The filler was because the designer thought I wanted the cabinets to end at a certain point but the plan changed from “Plan B” to “plan C”. I added a 1” filler so the stove would not be right up against...

    The plan called for a two inch filler between these two cabinets but I decided a 1” filler would be better

    What did you do today?

    I got another corner base cabinet in today. This shot is really distorted. The uppers look huge. I was trying to figure out what it means when they say the base cabinets have to be level. How level? I put a level on our kitchen counter that was installed by a pro and the bubble was right up...

    What did you do today?

    Well...I haven't got much done recently on the kitchen project. I'll blame it on the holiday and the heat. It's been really hot, although, I'm glad we're not in California because Sac has been in triple digits for a week and forecast to be in triple digits for another week ahead. Anyway, I did...

    Moving

    Yes, I second that! We moved in 2020 from California to Alabama and used an online mover. What a horror story! The day of the move, they doubled the price, said we mid-calculated the amount of stuff. Isn’t it their job to estimate the cost of the move? What do you do? Our old house was sold and...

    What did you do today?

    I don’t winterize. I leave it open all year. It uses only a fraction of the chlorine in the winter as in the summer. Of course, down here, if it goes below freezing, it usually doesn’t last long. On those nights, I just leave the pump on so it doesn’t freeze. We are so dry! We need rain badly.

    What did you do today?

    It originally was just one wall but our initial plan was for a L shape but the latest plan (plan C) is a flattened U shape like this. Plan C calls for the stove moved to a different wall and counter top on both sides of the stove. I drew the counter in on the left of the stove because it...

    Improper plumbing & trying to remodel bathroom/laundry

    You are really good with Sketchup! I don't have the patience to do the detail that you do.

    What did you do today?

    We had a minor setback on my MIL’s kitchen remodel. After I had just painted the new Sheetrock, we decided to change the location of the stove and add more cabinets. I had to cut holes in the new Sheetrock to reroute some electrical cables. I had to get my drill in there to bore a hole up...

    What did you do today?

    We have an above ground pool too. It has a wood deck all around it. So far it has worked out well. Are you thinking about salt water? I don't know much about salt water pools but on the "Above Ground swimming pool" FB page, they talk about it a lot. We had a pool party this week because it's...

    What did you do today?

    I got the Sheetrock taped and a first coat of joint compound on today. I went into the crawlspace (which isn’t connected to the main crawlspace) and installed some LED shop lights down there in preparation of doing some plumbing work for Linda’s new kitchen.
