i realized today that it has been two weeks since my last post and i was was supposed to be sharing more progress the next day. but here it is now.
the second project on the house was the kitchen. we opted to go with an ikea kitchen and M installed it all by himself with the odd request for my help. we finally have all the cupboards (one of the down falls of ikea, not everything is in stock at once).
it is a huge difference from where we first started but there are a few last things to finish up before i do the final reveal.
