Above you can see the left side of the kitchen area, which is where we started. I think July 5th was the day we officially began.
These are about 1/4 of the boxes that contained our kitchen. There were around 200 boxes.
First cabinet in. Assembling IKEA cabinets is basically like Lego for grownups. Installing them into a kitchen takes more construction knowledge and skill, so the the first time I am learning to use power tools.
Construction is even more similar to quilting than I always suspected it would be.
The left side of the kitchen is nearly done. We've made quite a bit of progress since this photo was taken a couple days ago. What do you think about IKEA? Love it or hate it?
