Kitchen Renovation - Week 3

This was a quieter week.  Monday the electrician was here to install the new panel (leaving us cold and in the dark until early evening).  Otherwise it was just mudding, sanding and priming really until Wednesday.

The crown moulding is primed and ready to be installed in the dining room.

There was a lump in the floor so they had to cut out this piece to fix it.  I like to think of it as a trap door, although it would only get you onto a beam in the basement.

Thursday was a day off.  So nice and quiet.

Then Friday was new floors.  They aren't exactly the same as the existing floors in the dining room but awfully close.  I actually like the colour of the new floors better.  There will be a peninsula covering the seam between the new and existing and only a small opening where you will actually see the difference between the two.

Next week is more sanding and priming (maybe painting too if we can decide on a colour).  The following week will be exciting - cabinets.

Can't wait to see the finished result. Love the picture on your banner and the blog title for that matter. That's why I'm here, it caught my eye at Hodge-Podge. Nice to see a fellow Canadian in the blogosphere. Enjoy the rest of your reno's. We have a basement thats been calling our name for a long time. I keep ignoring it. My children can relate...
