A Work in Progress

Jim and the boys are currently working on the cabinets that will be installed in our main floor kitchen. It's amazing to me that these cabinets are over 20 years old, yet look like new. Friends of ours pulled them out of a kitchen before it was to be remodeled. They were installed right to the wall of the other house, so the guys have had to repair some slight damage from taking them out of that house. They also put backs on them and stained areas that will be exposed. The other house had a galley style kitchen, so it was a challenge to figure out how to fit them into our kitchen. I think they've done a very good job.

Jim has also been installing drywall in the kitchen, and even installed a window above where the stove will be located. Imagine cooking supper and looking out over our garden area!

Jim was thrilled when he went to Menard's in Minot on Friday and found just the ladder we needed! We haven't had one that could reach to the roof of our house, and this one will be much safer to use.

By the time I got the camera out, Peter was coming back down the ladder. I handed him the camera and he went back up to take some photos.

Jim and Andrew making sure the ladder didn't slip. You could certainly pick Jim out in a crowd if he wore that fluorescent jacket!

We'll have a whole different view of the lake when we move upstairs ... From the rooftop, Peter could see above the trees!

We'll have to take more photos when spring arrives.
