The kitchen project continues. Nothing to dramatic looking recently, but the work is continuing steadily.

Been working on keeping Silas involved as much as I can:

A few more pics for those interested:

Tearing up the old floor:

I slapped a quick coat of polyurethane on a few sample pieces of the donated floor:

Retrofitting wiring is always fun:

New lights (the old one was a cheap fluorescent, ew); there is actually a third one on the other side of the beam:

I'll add some more pics as I get a chance (for those that may be interested) - finally started laying down the floor. Got about 90% nailed down over the the weekend. I'm apparently getting too old for this sort of thing. My knees/back/hands are hurting for sure! oy.

Also, if folks are interested in way more pics than I ever post, become friends with Mrs. Gabriel on FB. She's a pic poster for sure.

If that's a hint to accept that friend request I received ages ago... done.

You have a water cooler! I'm so jealous.

BTW, where's the junction box for your wires?

:lol: No it wasn't. I didn't even know you had received one. It was just a general statement that she posts a lot of pics. :D That's kinda funny.

Exactly! Codes/Schmodes :D

(That pic was taken during a lengthy attempt to figure out what the heck everything was up there. Once I had it all figured out, I cleaned it up and put a box up there.)

I'd posted some photos a while back that you wanted her to see, so she sent a request. Meanwhile, I'd changed permission so that friends-of-friends could see things and "ignored" the request. But now that I want to see HER pics, I've accepted.

You're right; she posts lot more pics. :D

(Hopefully she doesn't get tired of all the pics -I- post... <redacted_emoji>

I pretty much just work on pipes at the moment. I have four being shaped right now, and three I just finished which I will post here today or tomorrow depending upon what gets uploaded. We are looking for a big communal house thing, and then... I will be doing lots of work I am guessing
