Figuring things out.
This is our first day's work. Three cabinets sitting generally where they will be installed. It may look like Tom did all the work, but I did do my fair share. It's just that I'm the one with the camera. I put all the drawers together and the hinges on while Tom built the cabinet boxes and put the hardware in them.
This is what the inside of an IKEA cabinet looks like. Particle board. I'm not sure I trust it, but I have it on good authority that this is reasonably quality stuff. Honestly, I don't think I'd put anything but solid wood cabinets in my home, but...this is a barn. And it will probably only be used moderately.
And it snowed this week. We actually got more than this, but this is when it just began. The temperatures have been the coldest that we've had in a year - low twenties, possibly a teen here and there. The A/C guys have yet to show up and complete the installation of the A/C/Heater, so there is no heat in the apartment. It has been bearable only because the apartment is so well insulated that it has stayed warm. But that warmth is slowly wearing off because we've had several days of below freezing weather. If we were working in the open part of the barn, I don't think we would have lasted this long.
Oh, and I had a birthday this week.
