Renovations as of 10/13/2011

So the Kitchen/Dining room is coming along. I took pictures during the day and a few at night, the light makes things look so different, but it's all coming together. I just want to make sure that the finishing is done right. One thing I have to say is when you are doing renovations like these and say an electrician, plumber or carpenter doesn't want to or know how to do something you want them to, you have to push them. It's your house it obviously is more important to you, plus also these guys are in a hurry and are trying to get the job done and get paid. Sometimes I had to push harder than others, and I try to be reasonable but I also know that I'm the one that is going to have to live with the work when it's done. So if you can't see yourself living with it, ask them to do what needs to be done so that you can.

Thanks I do LOVE the breakfast bar, I think that might be my favorite part of the kitchen. I can't wait for you and Chris to come see it in person!
