Well this is all getting rather boring isn’t it?
Nothing much to really report on.
The kitchen delivery and installation has been delayed by at least A WEEK! I thought the end was in sight, but it is not.
We got our kitchen appliances delivered though. So they are here, chilling, sitting here in the way.
The floors have been sealed with 2 coats.
With this spare time, we have managed to paint the ceiling, walls and paint all the skirting and architraves. So there was very little cutting in to be done.
All we will have to do is patch and paint over the screw holes.
Next job with our spare time is to paint the pantry. I have already stripped of the ugly contact paper that use to line 3 shelves.
As of yesterday we have continuous gas hot water!! We bought the unit 18 months ago and it has been sitting in the garage ever since. We finally got that installed seeing as the plumber was booked in anyways.
We don’t have a date when the kitchen will be installed. It is kind of like playing it by ear at the moment. I am not too fussed at this point in time. There is still other things we can do in the room. Maybe we will install the architraves ourselves and save some money. We need to paint the windows as well and change over the hard ware to the new brass ones that I purchased a long time ago. The back door could be removed, paint completely stripped and painted again with new hardware for that installed too. The handle and hinges have been painted over entirely! ICK! I hate that. PEOPLE it is called take it off or tape it! DO NOT PAINT OVER IT!!!!!!
Nearly 3 weeks since rip out and our mood is still pleasant.
