Another Week's Worth of Work

It is Saturday evening and I am really excited to report the latest improvements in our home, which Kevin is just wrapping up. He is vacuuming the sawdust and mess as I type.

This week's project included:
1) Finishing the paneling on the laundry room walls
2) Cutting and hanging trim for the ceilings and baseboards
3) Painting the laundry room floor
4) Installing carbon monoxide and fire detectors
5) Completing a wonderful shoe shelf
6) Hanging a cupboard for our laundry supplies
7) Re-routing the cable lines to a different part of our basement
8) Installing 3 new light fixtures and an updated switch plate
9) Finishing the installation and plumbing for our utility sink
10)Adding coat hooks for the kids' snowsuits

I only wish I had a "before picture" to show!
Kevin thinks he will take the night off to watch a movie before beginning the kitchen renovations tomorrow!
