A monsoon has descended upon us.
Perfect weather for the task of thinking about flooring, appliances, cabinets, kitchens and bathrooms.

It is easier to spend hours inside a home improvement store when it is pouring outside.

Somehow this kind of weather slows the process of my head beginning to spin or explode from all this exploratory shopping.

A final design for the kitchen and bath has actually come into being in the midst of a monsoon.

I can't stand doing that kind of stuff. Good luck!

Well, what is the plan? What is the theme, what is the design? You set us up, where is the payoff? Some of us are very impatient to learn of every miniscule step forward in the construction process. ;->
We have gotten some rain too.

There are just too many choices, not just colors but materials, even allergen/toxicity considerations with some things. (Particularly the glues and such that are used to install them)...wait, I went off on a tangent there. Sorry :) What I mean to say is that I feel your pain. I see the weather has lead to some creative photography as well. You could develop a "side career" with that, I'd bet.

BTW, I'm seeing some genius in your awesome scarecrow-the yellow helps tie in and minimize the effect of the utility pole

BTW again, I really dig the slide show, and 10x my previous comment: you SHOULD be making money taking pictures. For real.

You must have become a bit bored being cooped up inside. I can tell since you had time to manipulate your photos.

Even though shopping for all of these things for your new home is tedious you will be so pleased when it all comes together.

This is supposed to be the fun part! Can't wait to see what you come up with. And the rain...well, although it is slowing things down some, it is a good thing.

Chuck I take a deep breath and remind myself it is for the greater good.

Frances do you want me to ruin the surprise of when it is done? I could do a post with a few links to some chosen samples.

Ha Lisa. Just doing this exercise sends you off on tangents because of the huge huge number of choices. Selling pictures is a thought for the future Roadside Possum Stand.

Other Lisa and Siria, in this part of the project I like the finished ideas more than the process that gets us there.

"Roadside Possum Stand"? Great idea! I have a friend here who does amazing wood sculptures with a chain saw, should you come to require an actual roadside possum! :)
