I'm enjoying a beautiful morning here at the Jammi Homestead...the sun is shining and the air is filled with the crispness of early Spring. That of course, is outside the house, where I am not. My beautiful morning consists of starting the workday by gazing at my bank of monitors and getting ready for a day of reporting comparisons - which can actually be fun, except that after an hour of peering at the screens, my eyes are begging to be punched out. Soon, I'll hear my contractor hammering away and the crack of 2x4s falling. The smell of sheetrock dust will again be in the air. Sheetrock dust, in case you don't know is like sin, it clings to everything and it goes everywhere, no matter how hard you try to contain it...it is impossible.
My kitchen is begining to take shape and is becoming the better space that I always knew it could be. What started out as a mini kitchen remodel, has become a medium kitchen remodel and is consuming more money than having Cousin Eddie in the house. The decision to knock out the pantry and the hall closets to add some square footage to the 'eat in' area was a good one. I'll give you a sneak peek. The area to the mid right of the picture is where the hall closets were. Notice the beautiful heat/air connections for the upstairs unit....that was one of those additonal hidden and unknown costs that continue to beat my budget to death...I use the term budget very loosely, as it was blown quite some time ago.
A view of the two closet doorways opening from the hall into the kitchen. Removing these two closets and a smaller pantry area, opens up the kitchen which was one of my major goals. These two doors will become one opening and as a bonus will lighten up my dark hall.
Wiring is on agenda for today.
