    Kitchen update

    My contractor and I will have a sit down on Thursday morning and have a serious talk about money.

    Until then here is a couple pics:

    The kitchen as it progresses. There is still a 6 foot two tier island that needs put in. It's getting there but none of the trim or crown molding is installed.

    Pic #2 is just a look at the floors. They get one more coat of polyurethane in the morning.

    It is in the garage, on the floor, in the "pile". I was going to dumpster it but I think it's still out there.

    A bit better post than the last one Tim. Unfortunately home renovations can go sour in a heartbeat and that's just not acceptable.

    Hope you and the "Contractor" dude can come to a resonable agreement. We here at DC do not want to see your posts from that small cell the State of Ohio would reserve for you should tempers come to a boil and some actions happen in the heat of the moment.

    Maybe you can "pay" him with that 1950's Retractable Lamp? Hmm? Don't toss it just yet.

    The floors are beautiful! Actually, the whole thing looks a lot better than I pictured when you were describing it.

    You might be able to sell the lamp on ebay. Lots of people are into the "retro" look and might pay pretty good money to get an original in good condition!

    Plumbing, no. Electric, yes.

    My contractor's work is mostly good. He's just very slow and way over budget.

    that is vintage stuff call in the reality tv shows or take it to Pawn Stars. Put on ebay and watch some sucker from CA or NY and bid way up. Then take your proceeds and purchase more ammo.



    ......... Or just place in dumpster.

    Looking good. I love "hard floors" in living areas. Make maintenence and cleaning much easier. Did you climb back in the window?

    Nope. I came in through the other side of the house.

    @JL: Nice. The top one looks just like mine.

    What kind of lumber did you use on the floor?
    Red Oak.
