Unfinished projects mock while un-started projects protest their place in line.
Planning weekend trip with MCM friends to 20th Century Cincinnati Feb 28th – March 1st. See us and say hi.
Back to renovation talk.
Small challenges are hurdled in process of progression. Mid-century modern renovation hurdling resembles; Stop. Stare. Scratch head. Lottaliving forum search. Angie’s list visit. Budget check. Resume. Blog about it.
Hurdles arrived in form of blizzard depositing 14” of snow on roof.
Ice damming revealed vulnerabilities in rubber roof.
Waiting for 50º weather to replace rubber membrane. 50º in a Midwestern February is a longingly hopeful make believe. Fortunately no more leaking has occurred since snow melt.
Took snowy opportunity to complete lingering kitchen projects. Installed cover panels on both ends of cabinet run.
Those of you following for a while will recall laments about flippers who destroyed this house before we began rebuilding. Their poor workmanship is once again revealed:
Removed awful flush-mount light to discover huge cutout. No junction box. Fire hazards go boom. Installed junction box.
Installed vintage bullet fixture to shed additional light on kitchen island work surface. Reminder: this ceiling will eventually be tongue and groove, alleviating need to finish out drywall.
Been contemplating finishing element for backside of kitchen island. Found nice sheets of Birch wood.
I write this while first coat dries. Now off to sand and apply second coat. Next post will feature completed installation and possible found treasures at 20th Century Cincinnati.
