Cap and crown

This past weekend, I installed cap moulding on top of all of the cabinets. And I also had a friend (whom I owe big time) come over and help install the crown moulding.They need to be caulked, primed, and painted... they'll all eventually be white to match the other mill work and cabinets in the house/kitchen.
My ceilings are 9'5" tall, but for some reason all this moulding makes them feel so much taller. When I walked into the kitchen this morning I felt like I was in the foyer of the haunted house at Disney World--you know how the room grows taller as your standing there? Either that, or I was a Lilliputian in a kitchen made for Gulliver. Seriously, I've created a kitchen for big people. Five foot ten never felt so small.


Long lost update

Oh my heck! Has it really been two weeks since I've updated? My how time flies when you still can't cook for yourself. But I'm getting so so so close. And the fact that I can't cook is not my fault--either the manufacturer or the appliance store provided me with the wrong mounting plate for my over the range microwave. Too bad I took a ton of time to meticulously mount it to my wall and tile all around it. Blarg!

But no worries, a new one is coming (and it better be soon), so I can install it and then my stove, finally.

In the meanwhile, I'm to the point in the kitchen where I'm just doing detail work--and I've found where the devil is hiding out, for sure!

Since my last post here's what's happened:

1. Grouted the tile--not nearly as fun as laying the tile, but it looks really nice (will post picture of this soon)
2. Got water! Yay! With the installation of the faucet, came the installation of the new dishwasher and hooking up the icemaker in the fridge.
3. Got electricity! Yay! So far, my new light fixture has not burned down the house, phew!
4. Installed the remainder of the cabinets, cover panels, and cabinet doors (here's my standard update picture).

5. Installed cap molding to match the mill work on the windows and doorways throughout the house.

Things left on the to do list:

1. Install cap molding on all of the cabinets.

2. Crown and base molding installation

3. Install microwave and range

4. Install butcher block counter top on a small unit next to the stove

5. Install toe kicks under counters

6. Caulk, caulk, and caulk

7. Prime and paint molding

8. Touch up wall paint

The to do list is getting smaller, but these detailed tasks are definite consumers of time. But I'm so pleased with the results that I don't mind the extra time... as long as I get that stove installed, pronto.
