WE ARE FREE AND OPEN!....

CHAPTER 2
DAY 2

For 2 1/2 years I lived with the Iron Curtain!  I hated it from Day One!  In reality it was a small feature, but one that drove me nuts!   To be honest, none of our friends who have one in their homes are bothered by them!  It's just me....I am weird!  MC knows that and loves me all the same!

David and his assistant arrived early and got to work!!!

Trim work beginning!





A little paint!




The wall on the side of the upper cabinets created a discussion,  and a decision was made on the spot!

 David decided to create a great trim effect!



Attached and painted!
 
THE ADDED TRIM REALLY GAVE IT THE NEEDED  FINISHED LOOK
 PERFECT!
 



 Now we wait......to have the Drywall......Dry,   before final paint can be applied!




The secret to no Mess!!!

MC WAITING

CHAPTER 3
 DAY 3 


Yesterday, David seamed the granite together with Silicone.  He decided to wait and  see how it "set" overnight.   He wasn't 100% sure it would buff smooth.  He would make the decision in the morning....

First thing this morning he decided he would return on Monday and remove the Silicone and replace it with Epoxy.  He wasn't satisfied with the Silicone.   He wants the surface to be as smooth as possible and feels  Epoxy will do a much better job!

He touched up the now "dry"  Drywall and trim.....Job COMPLETED

THE REVEAL

 NO IRON CURTAIN......OPEN AND FREE









CONCLUSION....


 SMALL DETAILS CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD

I wish to add that David was a joy to have in our home.  What I have failed to mention is that the first day he came he had a 4:00 Dental appointment.  Early on the Second Day he had 6 ---YES,  6 teeth pulled!  But he came, on time,  before 9am. and did a Great Job!
Although he was  in great pain, he came on Saturday, Day 3 and worked on touch ups.  he was back this morning to replace the silicone with the epoxy.   He had been to the dentist twice over the weekend for emergency work.   We have one small detail left.....which he will take care of on Thursday.
