I really would like to finish the kitchen soon. Really. It turns out it's kind of hard to make progress on such a big project with a baby running around. We're kind of stuck at point where we need two sets of hands for cutting plywood and moving cabinets, but the only time N and I can both work on it is when Baby B is safely tucked in bed and by then we don't want to wake him with power tools! This is the most recent step we've completed, and that was a few weeks ago. I guess we're taking "baby steps" to a whole new level. :)
So what did we do? Oh, we just built a hugenormous corner cabinet. No biggie. Except that it was pretty big. And stubborn and stinking hard to move! We assembled it in the middle of the kitchen floor before sliding it into place. For anyone interested in attempting a corner cabinet of your own, I definitely recommend Ana White's plans. Unfortunately in our case we didn't have room for a handy corner cabinet of that size. Boo. So we just made things up as we went along and built something that would fit the space.
Happy summer to us all!
