Photo Friday: Building Your Own Kitchen Phase 2

Happy Friday!

Last summer, I announced that I’d be blogging less to focus on building a kitchen for Dawn. Little did I know that project would be interrupted by three months of disability due to two back surgeries.

Well it’s time to get back to work. Slowly. Gingerly. With no heavy lifting. And my theatre-turned-storage room is getting crowded.

When will I finish? April? May? Who knows?

Have a great weekend.

Grace to you, Lon

Photo Friday: More Building, Less Blogging

Happy Friday!

For those of you who follow Average Us, Thank you! Thank you for taking your valuable time to read our thoughts on Christian life and hope, tithing, mental health, and suffering.

Maybe you’ve noticed that I haven’t written anything new for a while? That’s because I am shifting my time this year away from blogging and toward home projects. I recently completed building a new miter saw station in my workshop (gallery below), which will come in handy for my next project:

I am completely remodeling our kitchen—building and installing new cabinets, floor, countertops, etc. Dawn wants a “primitive” style kitchen, so the cabinets will look like individual pieces of furniture with a worn, milk-paint finish. I’ll start this month and document the process here on Average Us for those of you who are interested in that sort of thing. I think this could take 3-4 months since I work only on Saturday. We try to reserve Sunday as a sabbath to the Lord. (Someday, I’ll blog about why.)

Until next time, trust in the Lord our God with your whole heart; devote your whole life to Him. He is faithful and kind.

Grace to you, Lon
