Every day we make a little bit more progress! Eddie has spent a lot of time installing our security system and working on the gate. He is currently painting the metal on the gate black. Next he will be applying marine varnish on the wood and painting the walls a dark green.
While waiting for the kitchen cabinets, I spent much of my time cleaning up the dust, which seems to be never ending. Just when I think I’m making a dent in it, someone comes over and creates more of it! The kitchen cabinets were installed two weeks ago. It took the workers two full days to do the work. They are beautiful!
The granite counter tops were installed 10 days after the kitchen cabinets. It took them a full day to do the work…and you guessed it…they created more dust! The fine white dust was everywhere. Unfortunately, they had to cut the hole for the kitchen sink inside the house and that made things even worse. When the workers took their breaks, I would vacuum up as much of it as possible.
As soon as the granite guys left, I started cleaning up. I have become obsessed with getting rid of all the dust! The next morning, Eddie sealed the granite and it was hard to wait the six hours for it to set. I had only a week to do the unpacking before I head back to NC for a six week visit. I really wanted the kitchen to be all organized for Eddie who is staying behind to continue to work on the house. He has a long “honey do” list.
