My Kitchen Re-Do! Windows and Drywall

Week 3

We’ve finished day 2 of dry walling with the Bucket Walkers. Bucket walking is an amazing technique to watch. Have you seen it? Imagine a man standing on the open end of a tall bucket, using his weight and swing to travel along the floor. They also use stilts. It’s a fussy messy process, but lookin’ good!

The kitchen sink window looks much bigger when it really isn’t. That’s because it’s now 1 awning window rather than 2 casement style.

The electricians have been busy digging out, re routing and making new lines. There were wires everywhere before the dry wallers came. The builder took lots of pics so he’ll know exactly where all these wires are when he’s ready to dig them out for the final switches, outlets and electrical connections.

Notice all the can lights in the ceiling!

    I’m so glad you are recording this step by step. Everyone loves before and after pictures.
    It’s so much more open, that it’s probably hard for you to believe it’s the same square footage.

    Nice choice for your over-the-sink window since you certainly have a back garden you want
    to see.
