|On Christmas Eve Eve,
Bob laid down the plywood on the kitchen floor
and skim-coated the wall outside the bathroom.
handles and knobs have been installed on just about all of the doors
Standing in the bar area, looking towards the back of the house.
The appliances are here and waiting for the flooring guys to do their
thing on Monday.
Next week's game plan is as follows:

- Corian countertop
installation on Tuesday, 12/28
- hook-up sinks and
faucets later in week
- Bob is
off Friday for New Year's Eve
We fit some painting into our Yuletide festivities!
Bob took us to the woodshed for our first attempt at ceiling painting.
He recommended a better quality ceiling paint (we opted for Muralo
and a roller with a thick nap.
Eric took care of the cutting in while I worked the roller.

lavatory faucet (in the same style) for the bar sink.
I really wanted a high-arc tap with a pull-out sprayer -- but I didn't

Plumbing and Heating, but they said they "don't usually sell Price
Pfister faucets because it's hard to get replacement parts around
here..." Hello? Heard of the
I called Lowe's in Glenmont on Monday and placed a special order
through their plumbing department,
and they called on Wednesday to say they had arrived. We picked them up
on Christmas Eve!
