Here is a close look at the doors that Jake designed for the cabinets. I have always loved Craftsman style homes and this was actually one thing we both agreed on. THAT HARDLY EVER HAPPENS.
Here, the cabinets are waiting in the show-room for their transfer to their new home. (Actually, I guess they were waiting for Jake's brother to be available to help heft them over.) Thanks, Daniel!
Porter drew straws and won.
Yep. He's busy helping with the install.
Another shocking occurance: the stainless steel sink was cheaper than the one that joins seamlessly with the solid-surface counters. It was actually way cheaper than either of us expected.
Jake's dad was absolutely floored that I would pick stainless over seamless but I have always loved stainless and I know how HARD my family is on sinks!
When Jake said to keep the cost of the faucet under $200, I was so afraid I'd have to get something I hated, but this one was on sale at a home-everything-store. Happy day! The removable spout is magnetized. It does shower or stream.
I LOVE IT.
You would never regret having a faucet like this.

|Rylee is holding the handles. Did you know they just snap off? Uncle Dan did, thankfully. I dread to think the ideas they'd have come up with to get that thing to fit through the door. Whew.|

|The moving in begins bit by bit.|
This is the front entry-way. It was added to the house later and for some reason, slanted steeply away from the house. Jake started to fill it in to make it level and get it ready for tile. Then, he ran out of... um... what's it called, again? Uh...
