Flashback Fridays - Regina the Constructor

Lest you think from last week's Flashback that all I can do is destruct, here's me showing of my wild nail gun skills laying the sub-floor in our kitchen.

Now this was a wild project - involving many hours, three dumpsters, removal of 4 layers of wall, 2 layers of ceiling, and 7 layers of floor, dropping the last of the ceilings on Thanksgiving Day and kicking up dust so thick Hubby at the top of the ladder could not see me at the bottom. Christmas found us putting up insulation, and this flooring job followed not too long afterwards.

Can you tell we like to do things ourselves??
One of these days I will post the "before" and "after" pics of this kitchen (but that means I need to clean up the kitchen to take an "after" pic... I will get back to you on that one)

I remember the "before" when you were moving into the house! I have seen several "during" pictures but no completed "after" ones. Give that kitchen a lick and a promise and post some pictures!!!

I am SO jealous! I would love to own a nail gun. Now that I am not in the "rehab" business anymore I probably don't really need one but I still want one!

I can't show this pic of you to my hubby. He thinks there is nothing sexier that a woman with a power tool! Giggle!
