My poor husband has spent two days working on the hook-up to city water. Yesterday he worked in the rain. Today the sun is shining but things are not going any smoother. I've lost track of how many trips into town he has had to make, but its directly proportional to the number of problems he's run into...from the water pressure being so strong that it broke one of the underground pipes they installed yesterday, to causing the pipes inside to leak. Yikes! He tried re-routing the water to the tank on top the roof FIRST, and then feeding it into the piping system but that doesn't seem to be helping much.
High humidity and rain has slowed down the painting a little; it's taking so long to dry that I'm not able to apply two coats every day as I had hoped. Should be able to finish before we have to head home, though. Not so sure about the tiling. That depends on how much more aggravation the water hook-up causes.
I'm really happy with how the kitchen is looking, even though everything needs an additional coat (or three) of paint. Already it looks so much cleaner and fresher. I do adore a white kitchen!
Now let's see if the internet will work long enough for me to post this...
