Living in dust

I can't believe the last post was over 6 weeks ago - it's been pretty busy over here and finding time to post pics has been few and far between.  We are starting to see the end of Phase 1 - Kitchen/Laundry Room reno but there are still a few items left, mostly aesthetics but it's nice to finally have a functional kitchen. woot!

We removed the existing patio door and window....this was only a month ago and it seems like years at this point.

This is the view from the living room looking towards the kitchen. We removed the existing kitchen (on the left where Derik is putting up the drywall) and have now built a future laundry room/mud room.....I have been promised that today is the day that the appliance go in.

This is the view into the future Laundry/Mud room which at this time was used as our break spot (you can see the water bottle and Tim Hortons bag on the floor, how far we have come since those days!

Unfortunately we don't have many pics of the kitchen construction but as you can see the floor is down (we went with 18x18 travertine which turns out are very heavy and awkward to install) and we have pretty much completed the installation of the cabinet.  As you can see, we don't have any lighting yet (in these pics) and have had to use one of those industrial lamps borrowed from my brother which has served us very well as we have spent many days working into the wee hours.  That said, we have installed pot lights and as well as under cabinet lighting, but that will have to wait for a future post.

Here is a pic with the granite installed which is about 2 weeks ago.

View of the sink/future dishwasher and fridge area.

Well - off to tackle tasks for today (which did I mention includes a finished laundry? cue fist pump....and hopefully won't be another 6 weeks before the next post :-)  Happy Sunday!!
