Pantry, Roofs, and Closets.

Busy weekend here at Zoo View Home.  We had long ago decided that we needed more storage in the kitchen, so I spent some time looking at thinks we can do.  I decided that a free standing pantry would be the best option.  We needed something tall, wide and relatively shallow.  Ikea's Besta shelving unit was perfect.  

Here's what we had before:
 The bar has been moved to the living/dining room, to make room for the new pantry.  Here's what we have now:

It looks much larger in this photo than it does it real life (said no man ever!).  We need to add handles, but I'm looking forward to having much more storage space in the kitchen. 

We thought we had a small leak in our roof, so we have had some roofers come out and estimate the repair, and the replacement of the entire roof.  One roofer said that we didn't have much of a leak, and wasn't an emergency situation.  We are thinking we have the roof replaced in November or December. 

After much persistence from Nick, we finally finished the office closet.  

 It will be the central storage location for many items.  The left side with the pegboard will be for tools, and the right side will be for tall items.  I will update you on the details of the storage in the coming weeks, as we fill it up. 

We are currently preparing for Hurricane Isaac, which has moved more west, and will not be that bad after all.  Hurricane Romney is another story.  It's going to be very disruptive this week, with the RNC in town.

Anyone else have a busy weekend or week?
