So this week I got the shelving up in both kitchens. The shelves that Sandra had worked hard on preparing are finally in place. The rental level kitchen went pretty easily.  The backsplash is made of softer tile and the masonary drill bit went through easily.  On the other hand, the tile in the main kitchen is thick, porcelain tile.  Porcelain is so hard that a regular masonary bit barely makes a dent.  I ordered diamond bits from a tile tool supplier.  Did they work? Well, barely. The first bit wore out after 12 holes, the second lasted even shorter.  In the end, I reduced the number need to be drilled by eliminating the lower screw on each shelf bracket.  After all, it is the top screw only that is really holding everything up.  


While Sandra is finishing up urethaning the bunkbed frame pieces, we’ve started on two coffee tables, using material from the sawmill.  Just started those and we’ll see how well they turn out.  A lot of individual pieces go into each one.

Sandra repainted the entire stairwell this past week.  A ton a work! It had gotten pretty trashed over the past year plus, from hauling stuff up and down, and staining the stairs.  It just looks soooo much better all freshened up!

Company arrives a week from Sunday.  Two groups through the middle of October. Trying to get as much done before they get here.

Just about ready to have pictures taken for the rental unit so we can get it listed on AirBnb and other sites.  Just waiting for the pool table so it can appear in posting pics.

We think we’re almost done, but boy! It just seems to never end!

Fireplace on the second (rental) level is finished. Just need to get a TV and mount it
Rental level kitchen with the shelves in place. Makes such a finished look
Main level kitchen shelves. This is the coffee bar, where guests, and us, can go get set up in the morning and stay out of the main kitchen! ;-)
