The yellow walls in the photos looks a little harsher than it really is. IT is actually "friendly yellow" it makes me happy

well of course the first time she comes it was spotless. I hope she wont catch me in a bad place next time when it is a surprise inspection! I think I will be fine though, without all of my other everyday junk laying around (like my regular kitchen) , I think I will do a good job keeping clean and organized.

ugh, the health dept caught me in a bad spot today.....my hand sink just fell off.....well i managed to put it back on, but i hadn't been able to get the pipes back on....

i hadn't called the plumber yet, i was gonna give it another go.

OH CRAP

and here he came....i showed him right off the bat, he was NOT happy.

he wrote down a whole bunch of stuff....i called the plumber while he was still at the shop, and i have to call him after i fix it.

i dunno if it's a big a deal as i'm making it....or if it's this dang PMS.

everything else looked pretty good on his report tho......this is the first time in 7 years he has to come back, i'm sure i will have to pay a fee...or a fine or something.

what a wonderful looking space! congrats on all of your hard work!


littlecake, I think most HD's will write up a violation they've noticed, but they give you some time (10 days? 30 days?) to fix it. I doubt that you'll be fined.

Other side of the state...about an hour north of Detroit, in a little town called Ortonville. Your cakes are amazing! I was hoing you lived closer and I had found a local cake buddy. I love doing cakes, but am still pretty new at it and have a lot to learn.

Congratulations on your new kitchen...its beautiful!

My brother-in-law was from Ortonville I think! Is that close to Clarkston?
