Kitchen Nears its End

To recap the kitchen, here is what we had at the beginning.

We decided against new cupboards, as ours, though very old, are in excellent shape. We did not paint, though we will touch up an area or two in the next week. We added new hardware, which the before picture actually shows. We put in a laminate floor, new quartz counter top, a new deep stainless steel sink, and a glass tile back splash.

We had done all new electrical work in the house earlier in the year, and made the light over the sink finally functional.

Here are the after shots.

Pretty, huh. Maybe I will actually cook in here now.

New sink and counter tops

New countertops and sink installed today. All that remains is the plumbing, scheduled for tomorrow, and of course, a backsplash. This look is not too pretty...

The road to Reno

May 2011

Mount Shasta, the end of the four lane highway.

The snow is melting, leaving lakes where the meadows usually are. We are about 4500 feet above sea level here. Unknown mountain, one of many.

Entering Nevada, we have another 4 lane roadway !

Looking mighty Reno-like !

Back in Oregon, southern most coast, this is Harris Beach. Hub is feeding the squirrels

Harris Beach
More Harris Beach.

Sheesh, I think we are back home again.
