Of course, it's only half done because the clean-out is complete and now the next phase is in front of us. We need to buy new furniture and countertops and get it put together properly. The base cabinets we have out there now were from the kitchen project we did in a rental over 30 years ago. They are cheap fiberboard and meant to be top cabinets so they aren't properly raised off the carpet so the doors are nearly impossible to open and close. I need to buy new, proper cabinets, some nice filing cabinets, and some new countertops, creating the L-shape I'm wanting for the office. I need to study the IKEA catalog and figure out the measurements and then actually purchase the items - and get my sons to help their father install them. I'm anticipating that the thinking may take at least 6 months and perhaps this will be a great winter to accomplish the whole thing and have it done.
I like having projects but I love getting them completed!
