Well I am finally getting to the point where I can actually
visualize the new kitchen! We spent some time down
there today laying out where everything is going to be.
I would be a terrible architect or engineer--I cannot
see something flat on paper and understand where
it will be in real life. I have to have it drawn out or
better yet, laid out in real life!
My poor husband takes the time and measures
everything out, then draws it with a sharpie on
the floor so I can make a feeble attempt to
figure out where I want everything to be built.
How come I don't have this problem when it
comes to decorating food?!
Working on getting all the wiring in place for the electrician.
We were in the hardware store today talking with salespeople
to get the supplies. I stood and listened to them discuss the
different wires, voltages, amps, etc and all I heard was
qweiu wekfig to the oe;lf [peiw, djgoo, and rpotyosl
for the tiewrpogml and install weporpumbmssjddd
if you bvmsdfkp on the lctv2surt breaker etc............
Yay--the ceiling's framed in the kitchen! There is a lot
of time and work here, even though it doesn't look like it.
The roof is sloped to accommodate the deck above and
of course for water runoff, so the ceiling had to be brought
back to level. The right wall is the one that connects to the
garage and all of that exterior wafer board was removed
and both windows taken out and then covered.
Looking into the left half of the master bedroom. The panel
door is our bathroom. This ceiling was lowered to make
the room feel more cozy and warm. The ceilings were very
high so all the heat rose up and made the room feel chilly.
This doorway we are looking through will have a pair of
French Doors in it and I can't wait to see how they look.
This view is taken as you look into what used to
be the master bedroom. This room was so huge
that it was always drafty, so as part of this remodel
my husband framed up this 4th bedroom inside of
the master. The door to the bedroom is on the left.
The hallway continues down, our master bedroom
is on the left with the kitchen entrance on the right.
I had fun last week making a 2 year birthday cake
for a customer. When she asked for a "Backyardigans"
cake I had no idea what she was talking about since
my kids are teen and pre teen. I looked online
and found all kinds of pictures about these cute
animals that spend their time in the backyard.
The cake was white with strawberry filling, vanilla
buttercream frosting and all of the decorations
are cut by hand from homemade edible
marshmallow fondant. Fun stuff!
