Alan in kitchen, pointing to where counter will be installed and cooktop (much later). Tomato Red appliances from Big Chill can be seen, as well as cabinet that Alan made. Below, Alan sits in half deconstructed bathroom. 1950's pink and black tiles came out. Thick 1950's drywall came out in an effort to gain a few inches in small bathroom. Fixtures will be replaced.
The following sequence shows removal of door molding.
First, adjacent doors, right with molding and left after molding removed.
Then, Alan adds joint compound to fill the gaps.
Lastly, door in utility room after molding removed and joints filled, but before painting.
Much cleaner and more streamlined look, but a lot of work!
Plugs of 5 inch high grasses and flowers and 16 shrubs were put in the ground on April 25 at Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting. May brought 5 weeks of drought and high temperatures. Thankfully, June was cooler and had generous rain. The plants are taking root.
