A few nights ago, Bob came over to help us plan out the kitchen a bit more. There have been previous discussions about what all was going in the kitchen, but this meeting was more about laying things out – figuring exactly where things should go, and how much room they’ll take up.
Liz has been building up a collection of images/printouts and both she and Bob were working out the details. I mostly listened in from the sidelines, as I was busy making dinner for everyone in the meanwhile.
It was great to see Bob working in Autocad, laying out a rough plan for where things should go. With the bulk of our work focused on cleaning and demo, it was exhilarating to think about future stuff – to think on the creating the new, instead of removing the old. I know that Liz in particular was very excited/happy afterwards.
Interesting discovery from the evening: Bob found a date etched into one of the joists, indicating the original date of the house. Need to get some better lighting and try to take a photo. It’s kind of a crazy reminder how old this house is!
