We have a number of projects for this week. After we finish the last bedroom, we want to paint the wooden cabinets in the kitchen. Then they'll be set next week when the countertop guys come. We went with a black granite. At first I thought granite would be prohibitively expensive, but it turns out one of the advantages of having a tiny kitchen with limited counter space is that it's cheap to resurface. And if I'm going to work in a small kitchen, it might as well have beautiful counter tops. After the cabinets and countertops are in place, I want to tackle putting up a subway tile backsplash and changing the fluorescent lighting fixture. We shall see how that goes. It is definitely a more ambitious DIY than painting.
Anyway, since I'm not posting pictures of the house, I thought I'd post some pictures of the yard. That will be our next project once we move in. Or my next project anyway.

Anyway, hopefully next post, I'll have some proper progress to show you. Until then, it's back to painting...
