Concrete, Grading, Cabinets, Paint

This page should have a longer title, but that wouldn't fit on the navigation button.  A lot has happened in the last two weeks!

The driveway has been poured.  The part closest to the street still needs to be done--they have to cut out the curb to do that. The concrete porch has also been poured.  We're starting to get a good look at what the house is going to look like when it's finished.  


More of the rough grading work has been done.  they're really leveling off the area where the ditch separates the two properties.

The kitchen cabinets are going up fast--they're trying to get them out of the garage and installed as quickly as possible.

There's an over-the-cabinet electrical source that is going to need to be lowered so it doesn't show.  Kenny said that's really common. I like the what-not shelf on the side of the window.  And the range hood is gorgeous. I think this piece came out really well.  The double whatnot shelves are pretty and the double panel on the doors keep it from looking stark.

Master bath: I told Stan that I got the three drawers to the right, and two of the ones to the left, and he got one for his stuff. And he said, "And I suppose you get these four over here, too."  Until then, I hadn't realized that the lower part of the linen cabinet was drawers and not a cabinet.  It's really attractive. Upstairs batch: the linen cabinet is a little shallower so there's room for the door trim.  It adds interest to the cabinetry, I think.

The kids will probably split the drawers more evenly.
