Summer Project

So, I've been getting quite a bit done in the house this summer. I decided that summer is for indoor projects and fall, winter, and spring is for outside. Working at my job in the heat down here is enough for me and the horses don't seem to mind that they get to do their own thing for a few months.

Here is a pictorial of what's been going on inside of my home. I'm not finished yet by any means but I am well on my way. Most of the knob and tube wiring is gone (one line left) and the gas company is coming out next week to move some lines for me so I can make my kitchen work a little better.

Hmmm, I don't know why the last two came up upside down. I tried to change it and can't seem to make it work

I'm feeling pretty good about this accomplishment. I got a couple of days help from my nieces and a couple of their friends. Had a professional come in for a couple of things that I couldn't legally do myself, but for the most part, I've been on my pwn and doing this with my own two hands.

A few more cabinets are coming in soon and then I have to slow down and re coup on spending money. I will be waiting for countertops as what I want is gong to cost. I was going to create my own concrete countertops but changed my mind because what I REALLY want is soapstone. I'll have to live with plywood until then.

While I'm waiting for the next phase, I will be making the cabinet for the fridge and the range hood cover which will be rustic wood.

I've tried every which way to get those last two pics upright and it doesn't seem to work. They are right on my computer.

That's been happening to me lately, in this forum, with pictures that I take on my phone. They look OK on the computer and then upload sideways here. If I use the editing software on my computer and then save as a new file, it usually fixes it.

I would say that it is about 1/3 of the way finished. I know that I bit off a lot but will chew it slowly and have it done eventually.

Looks beautiful. My house is in need of that level of overhauling, but my husband and I don't have the skills to do as much as you've done yourself. I really admire that. We are having a heck of a time finding a contractor who is reliable enough to commit to working with us.
