Project Empty resumes

Project Empty is back.



avventura1234, who has experience with building demolition, emailed me the other day and said, "I need a project. Let's tear up your kitchen."


Just shelves with doors.

So we did. I emptied my wall cabinets and cleared the counters last night, and she came over today with her giant pry-bar, and we levered and pried and hammered and smashed, and down the cabinets came.



Then we ordered pizza.



We found nastiness behind the old cabinets, some of it almost certainly involving asbestos. We sealed it back in with a coat of plaster.



Then we went to IKEA and got new cabinets. So, not that much Empty-ness, but it's all in service of a space reallocation that really will improve my quality of life in the little house in Stumptown. avventura1234 just saw "Fight Club" for the first time last night, so she was calling me Ikea Boy.

The plan is to assemble the cabinets in the morning, paint the wall in the afternoon as soon as the plaster is dry, hang the cabinets in the evening, and get my espresso machine out of the bathroom ASAP.

Oh, this was just yesterday. The real non-paying busy-ness has been from the historFic. Of which a little demolition has cleared my mind wonderfully. I really needed a break from it.
