We also had lots of visitors this weekend. Saturday I returned from St. Stephen with a misguided load of two by fours and found Chris and Heather lounging in my dining room with a few beers to share. See today`s Tool Review for more on that. As they were on their way out, Mark, Monica and William showed up once again to lend a hand. They`re a big help.
Mark and I set about turning the 2x4s into strips to furr out the walls so they can accept much thicker insulation. It didn`t really work. We did our best with two table saws but were unable to cut them consistently perfect so we had to abandon that plan and will source some other way to thicken the walls. William should be happy, he considered the stack as his personal boat and might have declared us mutinous for carving it up. We did end up closing in an eight foot hole in the side of the kitchen. Considering the neighbours five curious kittens and the occasional hint of skunk in the air, that`s a really good thing.
Moira and Monica went through and through the kitchen design and got the details down to a fine point, for which I was thankful not to be fully involved. Can`t wait to serve up some food over the breakfast bar.
Meanwhile in William-land, a particular stud in one wall needed some serious crowbarring, a bit of sawing and a good talking to. I guess I should state that William is almost four, or this will all sound a little strange.
We are now in the fuzzy area between demolition and renovation, hence this week`s blog title. Still finding some stuff to come out, but starting to build up again. We`re really beginning to look forward and bring in supplies, but let`s just say enough is coming out that at times I miss our dumpster.
I`m hoping to have some good progress to report on before the weekend, but you know how it is Monday to Friday, jobs REALLY get in the way.
