It’s a good thing scenes like this don’t bother me.
This is the wall where the new cabinets will go. This was the deer camp and there obviously wasn’t a lot of need for electric plugs. There was one on this wall but we needed them higher up so we’re putting two. The only things that will be plugged in here will be things that will be plugged in while I’m using them — maybe the crockpot, the blender or hand mixer. Nothing will stay on this countertop and stay plugged in. You can see at the far end how close the window is to the wall where the cabinet is going to be so that’s why we had to stop the cabinets 2′ from the wall and we’re putting a book case/shelf type unit there that matches the cabinets.
The bigger hole with the wire hanging out is because everything — master bedroom, living room and dining room, foyer and who knows what else, was all on the same circuit and Chris, the electrician, thinks that’s not good. The new plugs will be on their own circuit. I objected but . . what do I know. I won’t be plugging anything in that I hadn’t already been plugging into the one plug and I hadn’t had any problems. The drywall he cut out of that spot will be stuck back in there, patched and we’re hoping to get this whole room repainted before the cabinets are ready to install. So, for a while, I’ll have a patched spot in the dining room, which is no worse than where I tried to touch up some spots with the very wrong color of paint.
Today Chris got the hall light installed, the ceiling fan on the front porch re-wired and this much of the living room done. He’ll be back tomorrow . . sourdough waffles and sausage will be served at 7:30 a.m.
