We started at 7 am....
First project - rip out the wall board behind the stove
That was my job - I had to use the dreaded circular saw which is NOT made for a woman's hands!
Next the cement wall board - Oh how I HATE that stuff! And of course every wall had an outlet so lots of cuts - DUST EVERYWHERE. I actually had to use part of our lunch break to dust our my office! But now the walls are ready for tile.
That job took a total of 5 1/2 hours! Much more than I antcipated!
Next on the list was building the forms for the countertops. I thought that would be the hardest but it went rather smoothly - UNTIL we had to cut our the hole for the sink. We have a BIG, cast iron sink which I want to keep. It is HEAVY - which is why I like it.
But our forms came out great!
And Troy's proudest moment
I used several new tools today
Reciprocating saw - hate it
Jig saw - now that I could get in to
Router - Another tool I could get in to
Nail tap - tedious!
Well Troy just pulled up with the cement mixer - we PLACE (not pour silly girl) concrete today!
Hopefully we will be done in time to watch the Daytona 500.
