As I've probably mentioned before, the kitchen here is quite a bit smaller than the one we had in West Lafayette. The two of us, being somewhat pack-rat-ish and liking to cook have accumulated quite a bit of stuff, much of which has been piled in boxes for the last weeks. But no more! Derrick finished a pantry for the kitchen and now it's functional!
We have a table with more clean space than the six inches we need to eat, we have counters we can actually use for preparing food, and, as an added bonus, Derrick swept up the layers of sawdust and dirt from the construction AND mopped! It may never be this clean again, but today, it is beautiful.
