One of my readers once said they enjoy my little quizzes or guessing games. So here’s one for you…
Any idea what this is?
I’ll give you a hint. Look at this next picture.
The kitchen counter at the WV place was the one thing we did that really didn’t work out very well. Hubby and I are NOT concrete finishers. We’ve never liked it, but we’ve lived with it.
Hubby spent last weekend in WV alone, using a jackhammer to dismantle the concrete counter. Then he removed the rest of the cabinets. (I’d helped him remove the wall cabinets the weekend before last.)
He spent most of last week there, alone, so he could work on installing cabinets in the evenings. (A wife and three dogs would have totally been in the way.)
He actually got a heck of a lot done all by himself. But that’s my Hubby. He’s quite handy and way more motivated than anyone else I know.
Hubby loaded all of the boxes of unassembled cabinets and hardware onto the trailer by himself. He drove it to the WV place. Well, almost. He drove it to the community, but the roads were VERY icy. After a small incident where the truck and trailer jacknifed on the very first steep hill, blocking all traffic into and out of the community for a couple of hours, he had to park the trailer. He wasn’t injured. In fact, it was over the course of the next two days that he had to make multiple trips back to the trailer, transfer the cabinet stuff into the truck, drive to the house, unload the cabinet stuff, and then repeat a couple of times. There were appliances, too.
I tell you, he’s awesome.
While he continued doing the hard stuff like building a small wall, assembling and installing more cabinets, hooking the appliances up to the electricity, etc., I once again assumed my customary unskilled laborer role. I got to do drywall finishing and painting.
This is what the kitchen looks like now.
There’s quite a bit left to be done, but that’s not too shabby for one guy over a week’s time.
The weekend wasn’t ALL work and no play. The girls were there after all. And they had a visitor.
I was happy to see a couple of bluebirds.
I took the girls for their walks as usual. This is one of the two bluebirds I saw. He was sitting on the power line above our driveway.
It’ll probably take a few weekends to get the kitchen completely finished. But it will be SOOOOO nice to have a dishwasher, new cabinets, and nice cooktop.
All in all, it was a pretty productive weekend.
Can you believe how much work Hubby got done all by himself?
