The kitchen is getting closer. Marianne finished all the drywall work, textured the ceiling (by hand with a sponge) and then painted. She also thought carefully through the design, layout, colours, and manufacturer and did all the ordering (from Ikea).  Joel put most of the cabinets together.  Harry and Joel figured out how to get all the plumbing (that Dennis had started) through the cabinets and got it all placed properly.  Harry has continued to hang cabinets and get the range hood in place and hooked up. 

 A few more cabinets to set up for the island. Counter tops should be arriving in the next week or two.

We now have most of the electrical work done, including all the plugs and those darn 3-way switches.  (Finally eh Case?)  Installed a generator panel as well, but now need to dig a path through the drifts to the shed to get the generator out… maybe we’ll wait till spring and hope there are no ice storms.
