The painting is finished (almost)

Today was a semi-major milestone on the kitchen remodel. The paint is back on the walls! At least on the walls in the kitchen. There are parts of the wall facing the living room that still need some "work" before they are ready to be painted. It'll be the end of the week or the first of next week before the seams get "built up" enough that they appear flat and smooth (and ready to be painted).

This side still needs some work!

But the good news is that the kitchen side is done. All of the walls (which wasn't too bad since most of them are going to be covered with cabinets or tile) and the ceiling.

The wall that will be behind the fridge

The doors to the deck!

That paves the way for another big day tomorrow. The floor tile is going down! That is pretty exciting. Every day the kitchen looks less and less like a construction project. The floor tile will be another big step!

Unless there is some major malfunction tomorrow - then the base cabinets will go in Thursday, and the wall cabinets will go in Friday while the countertop people take their measurements.

Hopefully, the countertop will be ready Monday or Tuesday which will leave the wall tile (which should only take a day or two). After that, it's just piddly trim work like installing the outlets and putting down a couple pieces of baseboard. So by the end of next week, we should be "moving" back in to the kitchen!
