What a weekend!I just arrived home from an overnight trip to Minneapolis with Amy B., Megan, and Marie, and I am thrilled to see the progress made in my absence! I'll share all the excitement of Saturday and Sunday but first, let's backtrack to Friday evening.
Here goes the first piece!
Scott placed mortar just on the wall; no need to back-butter these small tiles.
Just a few minutes later, the bottom row was in place.
The next morning, I was out the door by 5:45. While I enjoyed shopping at IKEA and the Mall of America on Saturday, Scott emailed two progress reports to me:
By lunchtime, two walls were nearly done.
Good Job, Mr. Pack Rat!
The room looks much larger without the peninsula that held the stove top, and the section of wall that held the double oven.
Thank you, Kevin, for all of your hard work!
Kevin also had the unenviable task of unloading all remaining items in the old kitchen. My pantry is now full of all sorts of odd-and-ends for which I need to find new homes. Of course, if the pantry had actual shelves as planned, I would have a place to store all of this!
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
Maybe I should begin planning another weekend getaway...
