The hood is there for the coffee roaster, so the counter will be very convenient. It's just that 5 foot drain run that's now a bit of a drag. Good thing it's a pantry. No need to be pretty.

The fifth and final coat was put on the floors on Friday. We got back home on Saturday, I picked up Reuben from "country living" on Monday, got his nails retrimmed this morning, and took these photos this afternoon. It's a bit glossier than I expected (probably because they put 5 coats on rather than 4), but I do think it looks great. Waterlox. So far, so good.
So we semi-packed on Thursday, preparing to vacate the house for a few days while they did the floors. At about 3am, I heard a CRASH-CR-CRA-CRASH, leapt out of bed (while Jack slept) and started surveying all the rooms upstairs and down. Miraculously, I didn't see anything. And good thing, because I was actually able to get back to sleep. I had decided that what I'd heard was probably the dish drainer falling into the cement laundry sink downstairs (which happens amazingly often and is amazingly loud) but forgot to look at it when I wandered around. I was wrong. It was a portion of the basement ceiling falling down.
The next morning we had to vacate for a few days while they put down the next two coats of finish. Off to the "country estate" for Reuben...
