Andrew (Our Beloved Contractor, OBC for short) arrived early with a bunch of stuff for M&L. Buckets, mortar, tools, extra construction-y stuff. He was quite surprised (and happy, I hope) to see that we'd already found a bathroom vanity for the downstairs bath, and we had a little chat about putting in a temporary kitchen in the laundry room for the duration of the kitchen remodel. He'll be looking for a basic kitchen-type lower cabinet (pre-made) to house a laundry sink (which will double as a kitchen sink for the next 5 weeks) and a set of drawers and a bit of counter-top, and if it's got Shaker/Mission style doors, it's a bonus, but I said "Hey, it's a LAUNDRY ROOM" so he's not gonna look that hard. And then we went our separate ways, after I set up coffee for the guys.
When I returned 2 hours later, it was to the scene of much industrious working.
To quote Monty Python: Huuuuuuuge... tracts of tile!
It's browner than I thought. And it's going to make a difference in how I view the paint, too.
This is SO MUCH FUN! And it's not even LUNCH TIME!!!!!
