Karen was out all day today in Montreal, so Linda and I took care of Ben while the electrician installed an outlet for the new range this morning. Linda removed most of the cabinet next to where the refrigerator is going, jacked up the countertop to its proper height (it was sagging in the middle due to poor structural support), and did a lot of sanding of the walls and shelves to get ready for priming and painting. Various other shelves about the old stove area were also removed.
I went to work from 12:15 to 4:45pm, and took care of putting Ben to sleep around 7:45pm. Somewhere in there was a diaper blowout, a load of laundry, getting carry-out for dinner, and Ben’s bath. Whew.
The cabinet on the right side of the sink is gone
The cabinets above the stove are dismantled
The countertop is now level and the bottom support no longer sags
