Wow...a lot has happened since I last posted. Look behind the cut for kitchen cabinetry, a propane tank waiting to get buried, lots more plumbing and electrical rough-ins, the brush-pile going up in smoke, and more! Enjoy!

[Lest anyone be confused, prettypammie posts the pictures to my Scrapbook album and annotates them using her POV--so when the picture says "my mixer shelf" you can make the appropriate translation. It's a cool gadget, but I wouldn't be dancing and singing over it like Pam was yesterday...just saying...]

This is my mixer shelf in its deployed position - it raises up and snaps into place, so I don't have to slide the heavy mixer around on a countertop.

For the most part all the interior walls are drywall, but we chose to use a little extra log siding in the LR.
