    Some progress. One more 12" cabinet to install, trim, install shelf behind sink, wall. Lots left to do.




    The disaster to organize before I get it all closed up.

    Just wondering if tape was used to keep things in place temporary or permanent, like wiring, piping etc. I just happened to be searching for adhesive tape yesterday.

    And is that ply wood for the kitchen sink counter? Is that sealed or what happens now?

    Lol, it's all glued, soldered, and nailed.

    Wood is sealed and just temporary until we are done with remodeling kitchen and then I am gonna try and make a concrete countertop. Kit is only $100 bucks shipped so figure why not give it a shot.

Installing outlets above cabinets and switch is by sink in same box as the disposal, and can light above sink. Will post pictures. Just did warm white for kitchen, not full RGB color changing with remote like I did with dry bar.

    Also removed old sink counter and EVERYTHING to do with base cabinets. It was nasty and drafty. Been dieing to pull it all out since we moved in.






    In a couple weeks this will change to floor to ceiling cabinets to left and right of window. Just 24" deep with a batwing design doors. Between will be a 36" cabinet I am thinking of opening up for cook books and such.

    Added 2 20amp circuits, one small appliance branch circuit and a disposal/dishwasher one. Most wiring is done. GF wants one more set of outlets at end of counter which lets us plug in 12 things on that side when done.

    Some yard work. Hired tree trimmers, fixed sprinklers, then raked, cleaned, aerated, planted seed, fertilized.





    Get a lot more sun in yard now. That's my POS car. Running it into the ground before I get another. Well, actually have that and a 2010 Mazda 3. GF drives Mazda, I drive the 97 Camry. My choice. Holding out a bit before I get me another tundra. Which will be the fourth tundra I have owned. I am a truck guy.

    Working on grass and paint.


    Also kitchen



    Again 30" deep counter and pulled uppers 1.5" from wall to make it easier to reach them. All cabinets were about $500 and countertop was free scrap from aunts counter top business.

    Last of old cabinets removed. Went cheap route for this. Bottom cabinets were damaged as was most of cabinets in kitchen. Havnt paid more then $50 for a base cabinet. Got 2 36" base cabinets for $50 because lowes screwed up. Since uppers are much more visible i buy ones that are not damaged. None of the damage of lower cabinets are visible. Usually side or back busted and i just add wood to brace thats out of site.
