Kitchen Shelves

There are a few reasons why we have not done any finish work on the interior of the cabin yet. We ran out of money, we couldn’t get building supplies to the cabin over the winter, we were tired of working, and we didn’t really mind how the interior was because we had been living in a tent up until then. The lack-of-finished-interior we had in the cabin was already a huge improvement from the tent, so there wasn’t really a huge rush. It was nice to relax for a little while.

Now we are ready to start working again. There are some things around this house that are getting to be annoying. We have no storage space for anything. There are some random milk carton shelves here and there, but nothing really. That means that everything that we use on a regular basis is piled in various spots around our tiny house. I want there to be shelves in the kids room in the worst way. All their toys are everywhere all the time. Many of the toys have mysteriously disappeared, causing our very limited storage space to be full. The kitchen would be another wonderful place for some shelves. We only own about five spice choices because we can’t fit anymore.shelf1

Once the walls start going up, we can start with the storage building. We plan to start putting the walls up as soon as possible, but we are waiting on some money still. My tax return is taking nine weeks to get back to me for whatever reason so that puts us in to early May. If we were to start putting shelves up now, we would just have to take them back down in a few weeks when we got enough money to put the walls up and do it right. It would be silly to put shelves up now.

We do a lot of silly things around here I suppose. The kitchen got a new set of shelves. There just happened to be a spot on the wall where we hadn’t even put insulation up and some scrap wood laying around. The man just wedged the scrap wood between the studs in the wall and add a couple of screws. Very simple shelves and very easy to take down. No big deal.

So, this is what I got.  Not really sure what the point of one shelf is, but I got moaning and groaning about putting more up and having to take more down.  I guess it’s valid.  But, I wanted more shelves.  He came up with this great shelving thing and now we are both happy.  It isn’t attached, but it sits nicely on the table top and gives us a little more room until we get the walls up and can have real shelves.
