Authors: Bungalow13Our Cabinet builder sent us over final drawings tonight and we just need to make any last minute changes and sign off on them. He already has all of our wood and hopes to start building Monday! There are a couple little changes I want to make but I am totally ready to count hinges and pulls and order those suckers...

Authors: Bungalow13For those of you who have kids, you will understand what I am about to say.
1. Ben slept in until almost 8am on Sunday morning! Yes!
2. Steve's bro and bro's wife, Amber, took Ben to the zoo when he woke up from his nap on Sunday until after dinner and we got soooooo soooo sooo much done. I forgot what...

The weekend found us busy at work...while of course making some time for the Ducks Football
On Friday afternoon and Saturday, Steve devoted his time to several trips to Home Depot (fun, fun...or not) as well as patching in our boobie trap of a hole in the kitchen. It used to house a California cooler (it...

Authors: Bungalow13I guess that it really pays to call companies out on their mistakes. I just scored $98 big ones doing just that.
Point 1. We got our fridge delivered in June from Sears outlet-it was a return/floor model so the outer shell had some dings-no big deal since it is going to take a wood panel. However, upon...

Authors: Bungalow13Well, you saw my really long to-do list in my previous post. In case you missed it, here it is-BUT with a couple things already checked off. Hooray!
To prep for these cabinets to be installed, we have quite a bit of work to do:
- finish framing

Cabinet maker booked!
- Published on Monday, 27 August 2012
I am excited to report that more kitchen progress has been made. After getting the last of the 4 cabinets bids back last Tuesday, we booked a cabinet maker on Wednesday and laid down a fat deposit.

Steve & I were super lucky this past weekend as we got to attend a Plate & Pitchfork at Viridian Farm in Dayton, OR. We booked the tickets about 6 months ago so the anticipation has been building and I am happy to report that it did not disappoint.
We arrived and found ourselves parked in a dirt lot with...

Authors: Bungalow13Got a chance to make a quick stop off at the Portland Flea this morning. It's a pretty awesome monthly flea market of vintage (mostly mid century) and made goods. I got away without spending a dime but here are a couple cool finds that caught my eye. It goes until 4 today if anyone in Portland is interested in...
