New Year's Eve found me finishing the last of the cabinets. I have the three pantry cabinets left to assemble tomorrow and paint behind where the cabinets will be installed.

I find myself more interested in doing the work and less interested in writing about what I am doing . . . like many other O-B journalers.

The tile that we picked up at an auction is very high quality according to Kelly our tile guy. We got it for about half of what it normally goes for. Kelly is an awesome tile setter. I am very glad I left laying tile to the pros. I have done ceramic but never travertine and never 1/8" grout lines. It is looking real good.

We went to HD to get SKUs for a bunch of items we lack so we can send it to the Bid Room. I have been buying things when I need it for a while now and I wanted to see if they could save us any money. I faxed the info over this afternoon and hope to hear back from them Friday.

Our budget numbers are looking real good. I can't see where I would even need to use the rest of the money on the draws but from our budget we don't look like we are that far under. I won't make any predictions but we will definitely come under our budget which included a 10% contingency fee.

This was a cold morning - hey it's Arizona - it doesn't freeze all that often here.
Travertine flooring - we found Kelly, our tile guy, off of Craigslist, called his references and he is performing just as the references said he would. We couldn't be happier.
Audra and I put every screw in the backer board. I had help with the wood subfloor because we were assembling cabinets.
Happy New Year's Eve! I know we should be cleaner, but assembling 44 cabinets leaves a lot of cardboard and packing material around. We'll recycle what we can and pitch the rest. It is a bit of work to assemble the cabinets, but by doing it this way we saved at least $6,000 but likely it was more.
Luis has become a good friend. Here he is painting the ceiling.
One crate down, five to go.
