So last night, it looks like the monkey crew had moved to the next stage of renovation…Safety glasses are no longer needed, but a do-rag was definitely required to keep hair out of the first layer of plaster…

Here’s a close up so you can see how fine his work is….

Next come the switches…sometimes you have to put a little muscle behind it to get it jsut right….

You also have to make sure that everything is level…

Ha ha!! Naughty, cheeky sock monkey!!! That’s not funny!!!! You could get hurt!!!!!

Checking to make sure the plumber did everything right, or discovering a window to an alternate universe?

You be the judge!

    It sure comes in handy to be a monkey when attempting to make sure things are level. Love that hanging shot! I love all the shots and am happy to see that you have such an industrious monkey hanging around to help. He also looks very becoming in his do rag.

    Again, I want to commend you for taking such a creative approach to not going completely batty while construction is going on in your house, in the kitchen no less, as I know what a superb baker you are. How long is the construction going on and is the sock monkey contracted for evening construction duty throughout?

    YOur praise is not completely in line with my mostly poor baking skills, but yeah, I do love to cook…

    Stuff like this doesn’t bother me though, as long as I know that my things are in good hands…My landlord’s last handy man not only did horrible things, but also ruined valuable furniture…This time around, I have no worries whatsoever…My kitchen is in perfect hands! It also helps that I happen to be housesitting at the moment…couldn’t be better timing!

    It’s helpful too, to have a sock monkey around for the little things…I think with his help, the kitchen should be done in another week or so…I can not wait to break it in, despite the fact that I no live in fear of a horrendous rent increase!!!!
