Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Remodel Updates (Long Overdue)

I can't believe it's been over a month since I've posted about our remodel project! At this point, it looks like we're heading quickly towards the finish line. This post provides some detailed looks at the construction work. I'll do a separate post to show some of the "prettier" work that's happened recently (cabinet installation, tiles, etc.).

This new beam (upper right) extends across the entire ceiling so that we could remove the wall between the kitchen and living room. The duct was put back into place alongside the beam.

No more walls between the kitchen and living room!

Mr. E hard at work with his new friend, "Mr. Chipper," removing the nasty adhesive that was left on the floor after we took up the grey tiles

New recessed lighting in the living room and new drywall covering the holes that had been made to do the necessary new electrical work

The new wall extension along the stairs and around the corner to create a nook for the fridge

Starting to work on polishing the floor prior to staining with a mixture of two greys

No more tile or sink in the powder room!
