Kitchen Renovations - Day 3

Day 3 was yesterday. I was working, and so could only help Jimbo renovate in the morning. We disconnected the sink and he chopped the whole countertop and cabinet in half with a reciprocating sawsall. Boy those are cool. They remind me of that National Film Board cartoon where the man is always sawing the furniture. "Stop sawing the furniture!" "Did not!" "Did too! I saw you!" "Did not. And anyway, you're always shaking your eyes!" "Am not! I never shake my eyes!" "Do too! See, you just did it. Stop shakin' your eyes!!"

Anyway, one could get carried away with both dull text-only cartoon footage, and with using a sawsall.

While I was at work, Jim framed the space for the second window in the south wall. He said that it took him 1 1/2 hours of heavy swearing to remove one stud from the wall, because none of the rusty nails would move. A good day to be at work, methinks...

The electrician stopped by last night to have a look-see, and he's coming in a few days. Day 3 was dull, let's face it. Perhaps the renovating honeymoon is over? Perhaps it's all filth and despair and panic from here on in? Nah. Bring it on.
