Where To Eat?

The drywall on our kitchen ceiling is cracking and peeling.  As we got estimates for repairing it we found out the easiest (and most effective) fix would be to add an additional layer of drywall on top.

The job started today, when the contractor dropped off his tools and went to the store for materials.  I removed all the breakables from the area, and the contractor helped Hubby Tony move the kitchen table and chairs out.  When I got home from work there was a stack of drywall leaning against the wall in the garage and the kitchen floor was covered with tarps.

The job will take portions of several days.  In the meantime, we have two choices for eating our meals:

 "Table" in kitchen

Kitchen table in family room

    1. Me, too, but in the meantime I'm enjoying watching the TV while I'm eating :-)

  2. We look at the spot in the kitchen that needs repaired, and then ignore it.

    1. We did that for many years. It will be nice to have this job struck off the list of things to do.

  3. This reminds me of the leak we had in our kitchen in Illinois. We ended up building a second floor over it which FINALLY ended the leak. :-)

    1. Wow! That's a pretty extreme solution to the problem!
