With the Nowak’s and Porter’s in the house the contractors were sure to get us a working kitchen for the big day. But judging from the pics from the day before – they still had a very long way to go – I wasn’t holding my breath.
They were at the house all day working hard – at one point I think I counted 8 contractors in the kitchen working…
Not to be detoured by the noise in the kitchen we all hung out in the living room watched some movies – went out for lunch and generally just tried to stay out of their way – while still having a good time, and a few drinks. The sun set and Kent started making his now famous “Outlaws” for us – while I made coffee for the workers – who were still at it.
Finally around 8pm they said they were as done as they were going to get – the lights, stove, sink, fridge and dishwasher were all working – so they were going to clean up and go. They had made good on their promise – while the kitchen wasn’t done – it was definitely functional at 9pm when the contractors left the house.
No sooner had they closed the front door – than we started up the baking – it was going to be a long night.
the list of goodies was short, but time consuming. But I could think of no better way to break in a new kitchen than with a large batch of Porter Rolls (even if it did take until 2am – thanks for staying up mom!)
