...they'd say "We're walls!"
That's because up until two days ago, they were just frames. The drywall went up on Tuesday. We still have to tape, mud, skim, and paint them, but it's progress, and progress is good.
All of the electrical is ready to go. You can see on the first photo, the blue circle on the ceiling is where one of the pendant lights will go.
The hood will be just to the right of it, and on the other side there is wiring for another pendant light. I'm still drawn to these ones, but we may have to hold off to keep our budget in check.
In the second photo, on the right wall, the wires poking out are set up for under cabinet lighting. At this point we're not installing anything, but this way, if down the line we want to add another level of lighting, the wiring is ready to go.
So there's plenty to do, and with the cabinet construction having begun on Monday, we are at t minus eleven or so days until they're ready to be installed. That's nota-lota days. Pardon me while I go breathe in a paper bag... -Actually we're totally up for the challenge to get the room ready to go. It will all be worth it when I'm makin' Mark some bacon on a gas stove and admiring the lovely custom utensil drawer. -Oh and don't get me started on the pantry!
