go barefoot. And the carpenter’s wife has curtains instead of cabinet doors…
Or did until this week. The builders in this area are being hard hit by the economy and work is scarce for carpenters. Well, paying work may be scarce, but there is plenty of work here at Patchwork for a carpenter. Dave may not be getting paid, but he is working.
Last week, Dave put a floor in what used to be my rabbit barn. It’s now my wool sorting area. Siding will be added at some point, but for now, it’s wonderful to have a dedicated space for sorting and drying wool. And I imagine Dave is happy that I’m not sorting wool in the living room anymore.
This week began a project that it just as exciting – Kitchen Cabinets!!. I suppose if I were a proper housewife, I would say more exciting 🙂
(really, this is straight – just couldn’t get the right angle to show that in the picture!)
He’s halfway through the kitchen cabinets and will start on the other side soon. I still have to make some design decisions for that side. The doors will be stained lightly darker than they are now and Dave has made some neat wooden handles and pulls.
Gosh, it looks so nice, I think I’ll stay here! No kidding .. I am NEVER going to move again 🙂
