One of the items needed left unfinished was installation of a microwave over the gas range. We have a small counter top unit that we've used for several years but it's small and only 700 watts. Julie had been researching over-range units and we were getting close to making a purchase. Last week she saw a listing on craigslist for a unit similar to what we wanted. The owner bought it but never installed it. Cost $50. The owner offered to deliver the microwave to campus for $10 which was well worth the expense since it saved us time and fuel for the drive to Williams to get it. We installed it this weekend.
The last major item to be completed is putting tile on a bar. We bought tile for this a few weeks ago but decided we don't like the color and pattern. If Julie can find replacement tile then we may complete this task next weekend.
Seven months! I'm not certain if I'm slowing down or just getting lazy and prone to procrastinate.
