On Saturday, we started the "small" project (ha - no project is ever small!) of finishing the pantry off the kitchen - a HUGE, happy thing for me! I can't tell you how hard it is to cook when all your non-perishables are stored in cardboard boxes and you have no idea what you have or where it might be if you DID have it!
So, beginning from the stud walls that formed the tiny room, I carried all the many, many boxes and lard/storage cans from the pantry and deposited them in a rag-tag pile in the middle room space that will one day contain the fireplace and sitting area. Then, Tom (or some bald man - we'll assume it was him) attacked the hideous job of insulating the walls and ceiling. (Insulating is NEVER fun.)
