I currently have no real kitchen... just insulated walls and some countertop with a sink plumbed in. My dishes are all on shelving units.
But, the most pressing issue is the bathroom, which needs to be gutted.
Then the kitchen gutted.
Then the flooring taken out and redone.
Then all the walls patched up and redrywalled.
Then, perhaps once the whole upstairs is done and spiffy, we can concentrate on the basement.... which also needs gutting.
it's the only way to keep my hubby sane.
Wow Karrie, kudos to you. If I had to go through that I would hang myself. It'll be worth it in the end obviously. My guy can't even put a shower head on properly. Last night that was the big job before he went home.
He had me wrapping this tape crap around this thingy and that thingy. I even asked, "are you sure". To his credit he did say no.
Damn thing leaked and he was convinced he hadn't tightened it properly which he was supposed to do today as he didn't have the right tool with him.
Mean time, I read the instructions, yeah, we put the tape on the plastic piece which it specifically tells you NOT to do. Helloooooooooo.
He just grinned. I won't even tell you about the time I begged him to change a washer. Good lord...had to have an emergence plumber that time.
I love the instructions for Santa and the email address, just in case...ho, ho, ho. Cute huh....oh the magic.
