I had the chance to play the same game with my husband on Monday night.
You see, our kitchen originally had some laminate floors that had been installed on plywood over the sub-floor. In preparation for installing the hardwoods we needed to remove the plywood to have an even sub-floor throughout. You would think it would have been a priority to check that the sub-floor was in good condition with some time to fix it before the floors installers arrived, right? Of course that is the logical way to do things but the hubby waited until 6:45pm the night before the installers were to arrive to rip out the plywood. This is what we ended up finding, water-damaged boards and a hole.
So I proceeded to play whack-a-husband while he scrambled to rip out the 1×6″ boards that had to be replaced and formulated his game plan to get it done before the installers showed up. That’s what he gets for waiting until the last minute to check on something like that 😉
Even with that little setback, we are making great progress with the kitchen. Everything has been patched up, primed and painted. So it is looking like this:
Instead of this:
As soon as the floors go in next week, we’ll start building the cabinets and move in the appliances which are currently hanging out in the family room.
*Disclaimer: No husbands were actually harmed during the replacing of our sub-floor.
