Water Goes On. Water Goes Off.

Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off.

Water goes on


Water goes off


Yep, I did that for about an hour or so today. When you’ve been without in-door plumbing in the kitchen for 6 months the novelty of it is all brand new again. Water goes on. Water goes off. Water goes on. Water goes off. But that’s not even the best part...

It’s A Thing Of Beauty, Folks


We’ve had rain here pretty much non-stop since Friday and the top-coat on the counter is taking forever and a day to dry. It took me two days to get 4 coats on. I ran a heater on the center part today so I could hook up the faucet. And once the faucet was hooked that means I now have access to one of the great modern inventions of our time: The Dishwasher. It’s wonderful. I got all the dishes out of storage and sent them all through for a good cleaning.

Because of the counter is still tacky I’m still a few days away from a home-cooked meal, but it is close. Very close. Tomorrow I start in on the last pair of doors for under the sink.

Yay--that's great! You've done a great job on your kitchen. I can't wait until the day we're able to turn water on and off in our kitchen...

Your post reminds me strongly of the "Ring goes on, ring goes off" LOTR take-off on Legendary Frog. I like your's better. It has some purpose to it. Hooray especially for dishwashers.
I think the work you do on your home is awesome!

The countertop is beautiful! And now you have a dishwasher to top it all off and just in time for Thanksgiving! Great work Greg.

We took pictures of the water running in our new kitchen sink/faucet for the first time, too. It's a thing of beauty.

Hello,

This is my first visit. I got here from blogflux. I live far away in Indonesia.
Reading your posts is very interseting. It was like reading a novel. Very descriptive. I feel like
I'm there.
I guess it will take some time to read all the posts here :)

Cheers,


Ujang

Ujang,

Welcome. Wow! Indonesia. That may be a distance record for a comment. Indonesia is a beautiful country. Isn't that were all of the Lac beetles are that they make the shellac out of?
