This was a very productive weekend. I've completed step one of the kitchen remodel, which was to lay new porcelain tile, replacing the cheap 80's vinyl flooring. The kitchen already looks 500% better! It has motivated me to continue the upgrade, as I move onto base trim, shelving, and paint in the upcoming weeks.
My girlfriend and I have developed an effective partnership through remodeling both her house and mine. On Saturday she was running the wet saw, while I measured and marked up tiles for her to cut. We got the job done quickly and efficiently, just like at a proper construction site. I even joked that we should go into business, and call ourselves 'The Bickerson's Contracting.' I laughed at that one. She thinks we should finish our own work before we get into business. I can agree with that.
I was also able to get back out on my road bike after about a two month hiatus yesterday. January in Denver is known for random days of bright sun and 50 degree temps. I always enjoy getting out and going for a ride around the city. I took my new camera, and as I'm learning about its functions, I took a lot of photos of the sites around Denver. I'm sharing them here if you are interesting in seeing them.
Life is good.
