Oh, how I envy you your canning kitchen. It would be a great place to steam tamales, too!

Saludos, Karen

And a mouse (mice?) had stashed at least a 5 pound sack of cat food under the cabinets.

Wife insisted on this house because of the amount of money we could save. It only cost me my sanity.

The whole house needed reworking so we rented a 10 yard dumpster and filled it with 'house'. This is where the kitchen stalled.

Wife asks me when I'm going to finish it. I remind Wife how when you start with a nightmare and get it to only a not-disturbing dream it can be lived with for quite a while.

Whach you think of the lights? LOL, It was Industrial lights done this way or crawl through the attic with pink insulation to do the wiring .... I hate pink insulation (pathologically) ... Some day I'll put in real fixtures, probably after going on Valium.

Yes, the floor is urethaned plywood. We took up the carpet in the bedroom with the intent of putting down hardwood, discovered the room really could use a second sub floor. Put the sub down, urethaned it to seal it, it didn't look bad so I started running numbers and found we could second sub floor with urethane the entire house for the cost of doing one room in hard wood. It's quite functional.
Thanks for the inspiration Wart I am copying your floor
