Small changes=Big Differences!

The last time I left you we had visited the property over Labor Day weekend and I haven’t posted anything because nothing had changed since then.  Well, this past weekend while mom was out of town and I was occupied with the U2 concert, dad took the opportunity to drive up and check things out.

Three things have changed since the last post, and while they may seem like small changes overall they have had a big impact.  First, outside:  the piles of construction debris are gone!  As you will remember from previous posts this was our biggest job of late and I’m glad to say that it has been completed.  As you can see in the picture below the piles of wood, drywall, metal, etc are gone.

The second and third changes are on the inside:  the cabinets have arrived and been installed and the floor has been painted.  Now work can advance closer to the finish line!  Here’s a look at the kitchen before and with the cabinets installed:

Lastly, the concrete floor that was plain and boring grey is now bright & shiny red.  Dad took some rugs that we had purchased up to the garattage to see how they would look, and I think it’s going to be really nice.  I look forward to seeing it in person!

Oh and also a little grass update, the seed that we spread over labor day has taken hold and you can see it filling in some on the hill at the back of the garattage.
