Kitchen: Whats cookin...

Well, we've been very busy working away since my last post. We now have a fully functioning utility cupboard (one two three - hooray!). I'll pick up where I left off with some pictorial explanation...

So after the plumbers visit to move the pipes, we set to work earthing them and sealing up the hole we cut in the ceiling
We then filled  all the gaps in the plasterboard with a filling compound and sanded it down - very messy... it was not until after this was done that I set about cleaning the entire kitchen (and I mean everything) for the third time (groan) - *tip for the future... it may seem like a lot of work to remove everything that is not in a cupboard, out of your kitchen before doing these small things, but trust me, cleaning them all afterward is a lot more soul destroying! You have been warned!* - Here some pics of it all plastered and sanded, oh and a very dusty husband to boot....

So then we could fit the floating shelves (complete with blowing the fuse because of drilling into a cable - whoops - check where your cables are people!) and paint it. And once that was done, we could move the washing machine in and other bits! Hooray!

As you can see from the first pic we have used expanding foam to fill around the door and eventually this will get plastered so the wall with the cooker on will be lovely and smooth. We won't be laying the floor tiles until the kitchen units have been fitted.

I thought you might like to see some picture of what the kitchen looks like - before the washing machine moved (so that when it is all complete you can marvel at its wonder and beauty)

The exciting thing is that the new kitchen is now in the process of being hand crafted at the workshop, all final design decisions have been made and we just await the nod to take out the old one and start the fitting.
