Chestnuts Roasting in the Upper Cabinet


Okay, okay, that title is a bit of a stretch but it’s all I’ve got right now. It’ll make more sense with the story below… but back to business.

Shortly after tearing out the microwave (and the odd looking soffit that went along with it) we got to work pulling out the last wall cabinet.

Katie went ahead and emptied the entire cabinet during the day. Later that night I unscrewed it from the wall and ended up stepping away for a minute (mostly to run to the bathroom and tap a kidney) and when I came back, Chestnut (@chestnutthecat – yes, he has a twitter handle. Don’t judge.) had setup camp.

Knowing his current state of confusion over where the kitchen has gone, we’re pretty sure this was his attempt at picketing the renovation…

Eventually though, Chestnut caved, and the cabinet came down as planned.


Now to remove that dern stovetop. Tomorrow friends, tomorrow.

  2. Chestnut is sooo cute! Does he shred the furniture with his claws?

  3. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is
    added I get four emails with the exact same comment.

    Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that
    service? Cheers!
