'Rover' approves!

Someone approves of our new kitchen drywall and floor. And here's proof. Today after the floor in the kitchen was put down, Jenna promptly took advantage of it.

Fancy dancy diagonal floor in the kitchen! Drywall on the kitchen wall! We are getting there!

The 12 foot drywall was tucked into place. Ralph and Ron gave Vic a helping hand. These sheets were BIG and heavy! Awesome outcome! And ready for me to mud up and paint.

Vic continues to display many talents during this reno phase. Today he moved and refitted the furnace vent in the kitchen floor in mere minutes just like the big shots do on HGTV. (he was moving way too fast for pics) Little do those outside of Yarrow realize I temporarily have one of those do it all handymen right in my own home, but believe me, I sure know it. And appreciate it. BIG.

Ron worked hard on this crazy floor getting the angle and cuts just so. And the finished product is exquisite! I keep looking back at the floor, just shake my head in bewilderment and repeat, "I LOVE this floor!" every few minutes. This stuff is from Costco and it is incredibly beautiful and ohhhh so nice on the feet! (compared to rough plywood especially) But I really do have to emphasise, the quality cutting and fitting is perfect, and I mean dead on. If anyone requires a good hardwood floor layer, I know thee guy to get.

I think it's safe to say that we as a group are getting tired. When a deadline looms ahead, it really does take a team to dot all the i's and cross all the t's. With less than a week for the kitchen to arrive, there's still important details to tend to every day. And I say this with a great deal of pride, that I am immensely proud of all these fine folks and their skills and for also offering their friendship as a bonus. I am seeing the house improve by the hour now and we are sooo close to being near the end! And what better way to go about all this than by the company of friends.

Time for some shuteye. Tomorrow morning will come very shortly again. I can't wait to see tomorrow's transformation. Everyday is like Christmas morning lately.

Thanks again all!
