Can you spot the exciting new house development in this picture? That's right, there's lights! Real, live electric lights that can be turned on and off with a switch! Of course, not all of the fixtures are hooked up, but I turned all the ones that were and went outside to take this picture:
Here they are, blazing away in the kitchen, showing off the cabinets very nicely.
Here are the black island cabinets in place. They'll look really striking with the black stove, I think. As you can see, there are no lights up yet in the living room... but I expect there will be by the time I get out there tonight.
Here's the laundry room, witht the maple cabinets. The washer and the dryer will go along that wall, beneath the row of cabinets. The cabinet in the corner is a lazy susan. The square box thing sitting on top of it is a stool, I think, that the cabinet guy is using to help with the instalation.
Here's the rest of the laundry room cabinets. There will be a 15" square utility sink in front of the window.
Not only are the lights hooked up in the utility room, but the fan is also operational, and there are switch plates on the walls. It's probably the most finished room in the house right now. I probably spent 10 full minutes standing there, switching the lights and fan on and off and on and off... :)
