Its been a while since I posted any home repair stories so why not give an update of where we are at:
1. We put up drywall in the hallways
Two examples is enough. Next task.
2. We framed in a bedroom closet (which you have seen before, go to the bottom of my last This Old House post) and framed in and started to add drywall to a new hall closet. There are were no non-bedroom closets in this house so we have made a point to create some.
3. Design and build a pantry for the kitchen. I can’t really take any credit for this one. Chelsea has a huge kitchen with an empty corner that used to be occupied by a washer and dryer. Why not add more storage? She designed a non-permanant pantry off the top of her head while we ate lunch the other day, and we purchased the materials this afternoon. A couple passes of the table saw later and we have some pieces ready to assemble. Here is an early view of her masterpiece:
I’ll put more pictures of this one up when its finished. Just a few more shelves to cut and then it goes together.
I also managed to shoot worse than bogey-golf this weekend, go in to lab for a while, and draft one of two fantasy football teams. I’d say it was pretty productive.
