The kitchen demolition has passed. The empty shell has now been filled up with wool insulation, wiring, new walls, a ceiling and yes, kitchen cupboards!! The power and lamps will go up this weekend, the tiling later next week. The pantry cupboards will be finished all built in the week after together with hopefully the granite benchtop and by that time hopefully the sink will be ready as well. We have been working it out ourselves and with the help of lots of friends and oh boy I tell you it is a steep learning curve. I am in total awe of those brave souls you see on the TV show Grand designs who build their own house or renovate an old fallen down ruin. It is amazing how much languages you have to know to talk to all the technical trades and get the stuff you need and what was in your mind as an idea. Us fibre folk can talk orifices and microns and hues and blends etc but wait til you talk to steel construction engineers, plasterers, electricians, builders. You will be amazed how easy it is , even when you take the greatest care to explain your self plainly and get that image in your head across to everybody involved, to have the other party think something totally different. There have been no major dramas at all thank goodness, but I can tell you there were some very close shaves…lol I will share some progress photos with you here but you can always see more on my flickr account in the kitchen renovation set.
Safe to say that Jazz and Bear have been very social and it is very funny to see both of them pitter patter towards all our friends in the renovation area to see whats going on. I think they imagine themselves to be our quality control team..
For the next two weeks I will still be camp cooking in the studio no doubt but there is light at the end of the tunnel..lol
How can a bunny fan possible resist that?
they are offcourse still in bits and pieces but you get the idea !
the cabinets are in, the stainless steel walls are in !
tilling and the lights will be done soon so next week there will be more photos.
