Here is the rest of the kitchen, with shots of the front entry way and the dining room (which now has what was the kitchen table in it - soon to replaced with a new table)

Here is a look at the cabinets (minus the countertops, which have just been ordered and will take about 2-3 weeks to get in) in the kitchen. You can see where the stove will go, where the refridgerator will go. What is not so clear is the middle of the room table and the kitchen countertop/table (which will seat 4).
At least this much got done in the past 2 weeks! A lot more was done, there is tiling in our bathroom, at the sliding glass door that leads to outside in the back, and most of the entryway.

This is the kitchen, half tiled ==>
This is the dining room, likewise, half tiled ==>
And this is what it looks like out on the sidewalk - we have a new sidewalk, one that is not lifted by the roots of the trees!

This is what the kitchen floor looks like after it has been "mudded over" (a completely technical term for covering the floor with concrete-like mud). It basically provides a hard undersurface free from the defects of the 30 year old floor. It was poured in about 3 different layers, each one oozing out further than the previous one.
This is a shot of the dining room area, also quite completely mudded. This was also done in about 3 days, as was the kitchen. The mud does not take very long to prepare (one part water, 5 parts "mud dirt") and it basically evens itself out over the floor.

So, anyway, we took a break - Linda and I left Michigan behind for a while and headed out west, to Southern California - this shot is taken in Laguna Beach - on the left, there are seals on the rock, and on right, there are birds, seagulls. There are also seagulls on the rock on the left, at the very top of it.
This shot shows the ceiling above the sink area (the west end of the kitchen) - it is wallboarded over and some mud is in the cracks.
This is the east end of the kitchen, showing the rest of the ceiling.
This is another ... cord(?,!,?) ... sticking out of the wall - somewhere or other.
And here is the area over the fireplace after it has been covered by - wallboard!!!
Here is the living room above the fireplace, with the door that was above it removed.
Here is a wider shot of the picture above.
OOhhh! a hole with a cord coming through!!! Gorgeous!!
This is the area above the stove ... not sure why they broke through - possibly to configure the electrical outlets differently.
