    It all looks beautiful!

    Can you call yourself a real liberal if you aren't reading driftglass?

      It was a lot of work, but I didn't do that much myself. My most important function was finding the right people at the right time and fortunately I'm pretty good at that part.

      My mother spent fifteen years prior to her death cruising around in a power wheelchair in the place. And, given her poor eyesight, there was a lot of damage that had been caused by repeated collisions ove the years. The wheelchair alone left black track marks everywhere it went and her little dog wasn't exactly housebroken.

      As you can see from this photo, the doors on the base cabinets were in bad shape from the wheelchair damage so I ended up replacing all of the doors on all of the cabinets along with a lot of trim.

      Fortunately, the guy who did most of the work had a lot of experience using epoxy fillers of the kind that you use in auto body repair and he was able to hide a lot of damage. But, the doors had taken a lot of abuse and they were beyond repair.

      The only trouble with retirement is...I never get a day off!
