The best meal of my life...

Posted 04-04-2010 at 07:33 PM by Leah Frances

Last night I was treated to the best meal of my entire life at Cafe Eve in Alexandria, VA. They don't have a Michelin Star yet, but they expect one or two in the next few years. Seven course tasting menu with wine pairings and 'gifts' send between some courses from the chef. I had to give up on the wine pairing after the third course - wow I was getting tanked.

Started with three little 'bites' one of which was a rabbit liver (yuck), but one was a deviled quail egg - too cute for...

Boy! Am I tired!

Dumpster arrived this afternoon. Spent most of the day tearing up the old Kitchen floor (Pergo) and sledging the bathroom walls. I had placed all the old kitchen cabinets, sinks bathtub and the like outside so I had to move that stuff into the dumpster. Thank God for my Deere 2520 with loader!!! After tearing out some bathroom walls I found insulation in two interior walls and also insulation in the bathroom ceiling. Not sure of the original layout but doesn't look like any of the adjacent spaces...

220v to complete rough-in

Posted 03-22-2010 at 11:14 AM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

Everything is completed except the two 220v lines for the cooktop and the oven. Had to call GE to clarify location of power. After discussing it with them it has been simplified so will proceed. After this is complete will take picture before I close wall up after I apply fire stop. Will need to finish hall bath demolition beforehand so will be starting on that tonight.

Frustrating day yesterday...

Posted 03-19-2010 at 10:11 AM by ChrisDIY (Chris the DIY guy vs. "The Ranch")

Went at lunch to Lowe's to buy duct to continue on the range exhaust. 3-1/4" x 10" duct comes in two pieces so it costs roughly $10 per 3' section. On the other hand they carry 6" round for $7 per 5' section. No brainer right! However, Lowe's does not have a 6" wall cap. Trying to save money I buy the 6" round and plan to hit Home Depot on the way home. I leave work and go to Home Depot. Home Depot doesn't carry Broan anymore and the 6" wall cap they have is...
