We continue to move forward, slowly but surely, on the kitchen remodel. Eric’s been working on the electrical for the past couple of weeks, and got all the lighting installed and switches wired. On Saturday his brother Ivan came over and they tore out all the old tile.  Poor Ivan – he always gets roped into helping us when we’re having a heat wave! It was miserable, messy, noisy work. Eric and I spent a good chunk of time yesterday cleaning up, and still have a lot to do. Even though they covered stuff up with tarps as best they could, there’s still a layer of dust over everything in that general area.

I’ll try to post some pics later this week – we’ve got our existing cabinets and appliances set up in a very rough approximation of the new layout so that we can live with it for awhile and see how it works. We haven’t ordered the cabinets yet, so we still have time to make some final tweaks to the plan.
