Wiring harness and kitchenRead Now
Plans change... It's always interesting to see when plans meet reality. When I first encountered the 3/4" thick wiring harness running down the driver's side of the van I thought I had a way I was going to cover it. Of course, as the build progressed the ideas evolved and I arrived at a minimally intrusive way to cover the harness inside the upper cabinets (see photos below.)
The main kitchen cabinet for the cook top and sink have also evolved. We're quite happy that the evolution ended up incorporating a pullout pantry in the middle of the cabinet unit. I haven't quite completed the pullout unit yet but that is in the plans for tomorrow.
It has been very sad around here - our dog Brinkley passed away last weekend. She had been keeping me company in the barn for the entire build. She was not doing well three weeks ago; after a vet visit and some meds, she had perked up quite well and had a terrific two weeks. She was just coming up to her 13th birthday and she had a terrific life on the farm. She passed away peacefully in our company at home last Sunday. We miss you Brinkley.
Work has continued slowly on Redford.
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
