B-day+190: Another day in the kitchen…

After last night’s late one we were up nice and early to make a start on the second day of kitchen construction.  Today we had the able assistance of Dan at our disposal, and we got through quite a few units, quite a few biscuits, quite a few cups of tea, quite a few slices of pizza and a couple of beers.  Well done us!

B-Day+189: Midnight kitchen

Burning the midnight oil we partially assembled the first three of our kitchen units.  Plenty more to go though, but it’s encouraging to make a start!

B-Day+187: Lights on, lights off

Most of the lights were installed today and wired up, along with the electrical sockets.  However there appears to be a little fault somewhere in the light circuit as the circuit breaker trips whenever the kitchen lights are switched on.  Electrician is coming back on Friday morning to find and fix the fault.

B-Day+186: Kitchen in a box

The kitchen arrived today, in loads of boxes, stacked into a daunting pile.  This photo only shows the small boxes – there’s plenty more where that came from…

Plus lots of the electrical second fix was done today, but not enough to give us some light to let me take a photo! Electrician is coming back tomorrow to finish off.

B-Day+181: Made in Germany

The first bits of our kitchen arrived today in the shape of six big boxes of German-engineered kitchen appliances. Shame we can’t use any of it yet (no kitchen units!), but who knows, it might not be too long before we can start cooking again!

Oh, the novelty of hot water hasn’t worn off yet…
