So where was I…

So it’s only been 3 months… and it’s been busy but not all about the house. I’m going to forget any chronological recap and just provide some updates.

In July I installed the yellow pine floor in the area off the kitchen. Now the dogs are doing a great job of scratching up the finish. While sanding the floor I discovered that one of the boards contained a lead bullet! Looks like a modern round (.30 caliber?) but I think it’s pretty cool (and it’s off in a corner so you won’t really notice it).

And Molly’s pigs are now quite big and love to lay in the mud.

And the puppy (Roxy) is getting pretty big and has chewed more of our belongings than all our other dogs combined.

Molly’s roosters went to the Grange Fair this week.

That’s Elvis on the left and Big Al on the right. Big Al was awarded first place in his category and went on to the grand championship but didn’t place. Elvis was moulting so he didn’t fare so well and placed 4 of 5 in his category. They are now for sale and we hope they don’t come home. Especially Ethan because he no longer needs an alarm clock to get up in the morning.

I have also been working on the kitchen. To the right of the stove is a prep sink and a butcher-block countertop. Underneath the counter are 3 drawers and pull-out spice shelves and a pull out rack to hold cookie sheets and other large pans.

To the left of the stove we have been using the cabinets and countertop from the old kitchen but those are now gone but I still need to install the slate countertop and construct, finish, and install doors.
