Once we got
the old pantry removed, we were able to get cabinets to fill the space.
Linda found a butcher block top that will serve as a counter
for these two cabinets. They're a bit tight so I'll have to
find a way to create some relief here. The panel is 1/4"
thick and unnecessary below the surface of the counter. That
should help a bit.
We found our countertops and flooring at Charlie's Surplus Building
Supplies. Too bad we couldn't find the cabinets there too.
We looked. They have a nice selection but nothing
in the sizes and price range we needed.
Once we picked up our old refrigerator we put it in the living room.
It will eventually go my storage shed with our freezer.
There are always problems, aren't there? The new refrigerator
won't fit. Why? Because an adjustment wheel was
broken. I called Sears repair center. It will be 2
weeks before the show up. Hmmm. Until then, we
wait. We're hoping this won't be too big a deal but it could
complicate things. Even properly adjusted, I suspect things
will be too tight for our measurements. We have room but not
without some major adjustments.
One thing I was most pleased with was when Linda finished painting the
laundry. I pour sweat when I'm working so I have to change
regularly to remain comfortable. After being without our own
washer and dryer for months, it's so nice to have them here.
The new paint is darker and glossier. My grandson helped me
move our appliances from storage. He's a strong, hard working
young man and very good to his grandparents.
