It’s been a while since something was too big for the stairwell and had to go up to the roof… *VIDEO*

After the kitchen-bookcase-misappropriation, I excommunicated Self; denying her Craigslist access and banning her from a position of power.

I said – Self, that was the last straw. You can no longer be trusted… as punishment, we are NEVER buying anything ever again.

Self said – or, we could drive directly to the bank and take out all of the money… have you considered that option? Then we can get this mirror.

I thought there was one kitchen decision that was finished… But then I remembered that if you think something is not a problem, it is most likely because you have not yet determined the extent to which it is actually a huge problem.

apron front.
offset drain.

I had originally wanted the 36” Rohl Shaw farmhouse sink… the larger size is visually appealing to me. But I’ve scaled back to the 30” sink because I’m not planning to bathe in the kitchen, and we don’t have a huge amount of space.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.

Beginning our DIY kitchen remodel— gutting the bathroom… *VIDEO*

This is going to be one of those times.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
