The pictures kind of say it all. This is going to be a repeat to my friends that have been reading my Facebook stuff for a while, but I figured to move my house musings over to a blog. I’m going to try and track the restoration process in here. Some weeks will get a bunch of posts. Others might be a bit thin. Who knows?
So, I hear you ask, how did your beautiful kitchen turn into a mess? The Dot and I take in strays. We have a big Victorian house, and we hate empty rooms. Last year we had a kid move in for a bit. The bit stretched into spring. We weren’t prepared for what we were setting ourselves up for. While left alone for a couple of days when everyone else was out of town he plugged up the tub and toilet on the 2nd floor and water ran into our beautiful kitchen for three or so days. Needless to say, it’s a mess.
The inspectors are now making their rounds, and various contractors are figuring out how much it’s going to take to set things right. Not to mention any numbers, but it’s painfully large. Thank heavens for insurance!
Anyway, here’s a walk-through I made right after The Dot and I got back from vacation (revised 24 April with HD version!).
