Good news, internets. The PIAB Kitchen Remodel Disaster '06 is coming to a close. What takes some people weeks takes us almost a full goddamn year. And by "coming to a close," I really mean "The cabinets are installed, but we still have to paint/do some extra demolition/reload the cabinets/install a new countertop/install a stove."
Sure, Rasputin will hand you a wine glass, if you ask nicely.
In conclusion, I highly recommend home remodeling. The results are more than we could have ever dreamed of. If we were the type of people to dream about a new kitchen, instead of the type of people who are forced to redo the kitchen lest we fell through a gaping, termite-ridden hole into the basement.
