I cut the holes for the window and doors and I still have all ten fingers intact!

I had to remove a piece of trim from the outside wall. I'll sand, prime and paint over that.

I learned a lot about jigsaws while I was working on this. This was the first time I had used one. The blade needs go into the saw facing away from you. I tried it the other way and couldn't see what I was doing! That's what happens when you don't read the directions!

My nifty little cordless saw even has a headlight! How cool is that?!

Here is a photo of the kitchen now. The top of the door opening is crooked, but I think some spackle and the door trim will hide that...

I love how the new window opening brings more light into the bedroom. Can't wait to get the window installed. Thanks for helping me choose the one that opens! I love it!

Right now I'm waiting for the paint to dry on the doors and window. Then I'll install them.
They actually fit! :D

More later. I'm going to take a nap now.

Hey, that's looking great! You are so brave to do all that cutting. I'm still a weenie about construction projects. I admire how you just go for it!

Looking good, Kathi! Can't wait to see the doors and windows in place.

Troy said...

Looks good so far. Cant wait to see your progress.

Cool Kathi using those powertools! I think they are pretty impressive (scary ;)) But they help a lot too!

You probably can't wait till the paint is dry! Why does that always take so long ;)
