Here's what the kitchen looks like today!

Next steps? Primer and paint today, then tomorrow the floor guy comes. While the poly is being put down I say we hotel it for three days, Dean says we just live in the basement for three days. Money is an issues since every last penny is being put into the kitchen so we'll see. Next week we'll be ready for the cabinets. Ahhh but will the cabinets be ready for us? NO! Two to three weeks left for those!
