Catching Up

It's amazing how much can change in the 6 weeks since we last posted. We lived with Marc's parents for about a month of that. But it was such a long commute (don't get me started on Montreal traffic...) with extremely early mornings and late nights, I'm just glad we survived it!

The next few blog posts will be postdated to try and give a sense of the timing of the highs and lows over the past few weeks.

And here's a few pics to show some of the progress over this Xmas/New Year holiday period.

Marc's brother is helping out with the drywall. He also helped put rebar on the walls (which gives Marc the willies coz he got a major cut on his finger handling the stuff) and ceilings, along with plastic sheeting in preparation for the insulation to be pumped there.

In the kitchen, we added all the cupboard doors, plus installed the drawers, so now everything is unpacked and in its place.

That last cupboard on the right is actually planned to be at 90° to make a bar area, but I'm quite liking the openness of the kitchen as is, so we'll see.
