The adventures of Brian the pug and his devotees.

The cabinet and I suffered a few bumps and bruises, but worth it in the end! Who's coming over for dinner?

Now I Know Why it's Called a Built-in

Alternate post title: Easier Said than Done

Our designer suggested we move our built-in cabinet to the adjacent wall in order to create space for a dining table. I have been attempting to remove this stupid thing for two days, and it's still stubbornly stuck in place. It's starting to look like it would make great firewood at this point. There are millions of trim nails in every nook and cranny which are difficult to see, and even harder to remove. Every time I think I've pulled the last one, the cabinet still won't move, and I find another nail.

In happier news, we have layout plans for our kitchen, so it's a bit easier to envision what it will be like when all this work is done.

That's a lot of bones.

Renovation Commence!

We started to pull up the floor in the kitchen at our house in NE Portland. Or shall I say floors? Guess how many layers we found (so far).

Brian the project manager is helping by sleeping on top of discarded carpet from the bedroom. Betty just chased her tail.
