Model Home.....err Abarnment

This kitchen looks ready to roll......

......and so does the bathroom.....

....with it's super cute door that I'm pretty much obsessed with.....

Alas, there is no running water, much less HOT water to be found. Even more upsetting, is the plumber (aka, my Father) isn't interested in having a plumbers assistant, so I must sit and wait for my dream abarnment to be finished. 

And while I'm sitting and waiting (because you all know how well I do both of those....not!) I'm researching a new oven. Because we caught mine on fire today. Terrifying. We've gotten all the major appliances, except for the refrigerator, as hand-me-downs from my dad's friends, who are in the kitchen remodeling business. We had figured out how to fit in the oven into my house since it was a wall mounted dealio that I don't have a spare wall to install it into, so we were having to modify one of the bottom cabinets to make it fit. Today's agenda was to test wire it to make sure it was in working order, and hardcore clean it, since the previous owners apparently didn't believe in cleaning. 

Dad wired it up, flipped the breaker on, the digital display lit up, but before we could start our victory dances the control panel LIT.ON.FIRE! It was horrible. My biggest fear is of my house burning down, so this is a BIG DEAL in my book. Luckily we were testing this sitting out in the open, in our barn stall downstairs from my abarnment, but if that had been installed it would have caught the whole cabinet on fire, which would have caught the whole kitchen on fire and lord knows where it would have gone from there. 

Needless to say, that oven is toast. Literally.

Love to all,

Okay. At your a-barn-ment-warming party, we totally need to have a "fire-related dance mix." ("It's getting hot in here," "I didn't start the fire," anything with the lyrics "...the roof is on fire..." You get the idea.)

It's looking so good! I can't wait to see more!
