I’m continuing work on the “nuts and bolts” of the mini house; trim, cabinetry, and will have to get the doors made.

Here is the trim in place in the greatroom:

And the kitchen peninsula is in the works – I have finished the cabinet box and spray painted it black, in preparation for the wood veneer to be applied. Here it is:

Sigh…I have now noticed that the pendant lights are off center. Not sure what I am going to do about this. I will think about it later.

The nice thing about a hobby is that though some things must of necessity be properly sequenced, because it is a hobby and not a job, I can jump around and work on whatever appeals to me.

So aside from staining and installing more base and crown molding, I am going to make the “stainless steel” apron front sink. It will be made from basswood. I’m not yet sure if I will simply paint it as I have done with the fridge, or if I will use my sheet aluminum to line it. I’m leaning towards trying the process of lining it with the sheet aluminum. If that doesn’t work I can always paint it out.

I printed out tons of pages of marble slabs for the countertop and am having a lot of fun trying them out. So many choices, but only one can be picked!
