I've lurked around here for a while reading all the great information on here. As an industry professional, I can say I have learned a lot about the building process from your perspective: as the owner-builder. So, thank you!

With the flooring done, work has shifted to setting and final assembly of cabinets.  That has moved along pretty well with only a couple of hiccups.  The cabinets that make up the china hutch around a large window are up, and while they need moulding at the top and glass in the doors, are set in place.  The island took over a day to set, primarily because the floor isn’t level underneath it.  That has had me scratching my head as to why - probably because of the swelling of the subfloor that took place.  Everything needs to be perfectly level, perfectly square.  As one set one side and work around, constant checks with a long straight edge are required in order to keeep everything in alignment.  It just takes far  more time than one can imagine.  But all turned out great in the end.  I may attempt to put up a couple of wall cabinets today. Woild be nice to get some of those off the floor.  Sandra has been doing a fantastic job of installing the drawer glides.  Very tedious work and involves locating and screwing the glides to the back of the cabinet and to the face frame.  It is something that I have traditionally done, but she took it on and that has made this move forward a whole lot faster.

China hutch assembly. Put together from individual cabinet pieces.
Island cabinets. Sink is set in place, dishwasher set in place. Drawer fronts need to be put on, once Sandra figures which fronts go where. Not as simple as it sounds.
Backside of island. Doors and false panels are on.
Drawer fronts, doors and false panels laid out in the great room as Sandra tries to figure what goes where.
Main living area with the floor finished. Nice to be soooooo clean!
