Steve built the half wall in the kitchen this weekend. The wall looking out to the front door will be where the cooktop is going. The long wall facing the great room is counter top with the sink centered in the middle. We might place another cabinet at the end of the wall with a bookshelf for cookbooks.
This was my project. Pulling nails out of USB board so we can re-insulate & run the electric. Most of the nails are ring shank nails which are twisted on the shank making them almost impossible to pull out. It's a good way to get any frustrations out :-)
Steve built this over the hole the stairway to the basement. A window will be placed on each side to let light into the stairwell so less electricity will need to be used.
He then built a support for the top for a workbench. Sunday I went into the woods and pruned the raspberry bushes. I also found this downed tree that could possibly be used for a support post in our living area. We really like the idea of bringing nature inside.
Before we left for home, we took "Earl" the pickup out for a drive. He's been sitting in the garage all winter. He started right up. I'm going to be staying at the farm next week so Earl will be my "ride".
