LIKE FREEZING. LITERALLY. UGH.
The blustery snow from my window at work...
So we went to our frozen little cart this weekend and honestly, couldn't get much done. It was 25 degrees and there is NO WHERE to warm up. We were able to get all the counters RE-painted (story of my life), and they are ready for sinks and plumbing.
Hand washing sink to the right, double basin sinks on the left.
Because it was so cold, we decided to do some much needed appliance shopping. We were fortunate enough to get a refrigerator donated (thanks, Joey!), so that's good, but we still need the necessities. Grill, Fryer and Hood. Yikes.
This stuff is NOT cheap. In staying with our mission to get most of our materials donated or use recycled stuff, we are quickly realizing that we DON'T want to go that route with our appliances. We've done an excellent job staying in line with that mission for our building materials (over 90% donated or from Rebuilding Center), but because we want things to LAST and OPERATE, we are purchasing our appliances new. HELLO WARRANTY! Shopping for these things, however, is sort of like shopping for a car. So many options, so many different features, all of 'em shiny and new.... IT'S HARD TO DECIDE!
One thing is for sure, I'm loving the chef hat!
Travis is good at keeping things interesting as well.
Once we get these things purchased...(this week in fact)...the cart is going to move at a rapid pace. We will be able to complete the entire front of the cart and the "kitchen." Then on to the exciting stuff...like painting the outside and completing the menu...
