House in shambles

We spent a week in Florida getting our SCUBA open-water certification, and decided to get the bulk of our kitchen work done while we were there. It was a partial success — we got our certifications. However, the kitchen, and basement bar are far from complete. Templating for the countertops will be done today (hopefully), and we’ll see the rest of the cabinets moved in before that happens. We’re currently doing a lot of barbecuing, and eating easy-to-assemble meals.
The laundry room floor was done first. It’s nicely tiled now:

Here’s what the kitchen looked like before:

Here’s what it looked like last week:

Here it is now:

Here’s the basement bar. It’s actually been tiled and grouted since this photo, and we painted last night, so it’s not as bad as this:
