Installation of a high wall cupboard/up date: Kitchen done

Pose d’un placard en haut d’un mur.

English version below the picture

Mon cousin René ( celui qui parle aux phoques) installe des placard hauts dans la cuisine de sa fille Sylvie.
Ce n’ était pas simple à faire.

Il a fallu du temps :
-acheter les placards
-les soulever et les fixer au mur de la cuisine

Pour cela sa fille Sylvie et sa petite fille Lucie soulevaient et maintenaient le placard pendant que mon cousin René mettait les vis.
Il était guidé par sa femme Chantal qui pilotait l’horizontalité

puis il aura à mettre les charnières des portes

N’est-il pas beau le travail en famille ? Cela crée de la solidarité et de l’amour entre les membres qui la composent

Familial work to install this cupboard on the highh of the wall . The cat is amazed by the show 🙂
Travail en famille pour installer ce placard en haut du mur . Le chat est émerveillé par le spectacle

My cousin René ( you know the one who talks to the seals )is installing cupboards high on the wall of his daughter Sylvie’s kitchen.
It was not easy to do

It took time
– to buy the cupboards
– lift them up and fix them to the kitchen wall

For this, his daughter Sylvie and his granddaughter Lucie lifted and held the cupboard while my cousin René put the screws.
He was guided by his wife Chantal who piloted the horizontality.

then he will have to put the hinges of the doors


Isn’t it beautiful to work as a family? This creates solidarity and love between the members who compose it.

Voici une photo de mon cousin René prise chez nous en Février 2017 pendant qu’il épluchait des pommes de terre . Cet homme sait tout faire ! 🙂

My cousin René

Here is a picture of my cousin Rene taken at our home in February 2017 while he was peeling potatoes . This man is able to make anything! 🙂

Up date : Kitcghen done / Cuisine finie

Mon cousin René vient de m’envoyer des photos de la cuisine enfin achevée. Sur la photo ci_dessous on voit quatre placards vers le haurt du mur ? Avec les autres murs il y a 8 placards . Tout cela est net , beau et bien horizontal. J ‘ai suggéré à mon cousin de mettre de étiquettes sur eux pour savoir ce qu’il contiennent, chacun 🙂
Le chat est enthousiaste car il se dit que dans ces huit placards il y a certainement quelques douceurs pour chat! 🙂

4 placards sur ce mur Four cupboards on this wall

Kitchen done February 2
My cousin René has just sent me pictures of the kitchen finally completed. On this photo above we see
four cupboards towards the height of the wall? With the other walls there are 8 cupboards. It’s all clean and beautiful and perfectly horizontal. I suggested to my cousin to put labels on them to know what each one contains 🙂
The cat is enthusiastic because he thinks that in these eight cupboards there are certainly some cat treats ! 🙂

    I love the story and accompanying sketch as always. It is indeed nice to see family working together.
    Love, Christine ❤️

    Beau travail d équipe en effet…bravo à tous pour ce montage….et cette tarte était elle bien faite?bonne soirée je vous embrasse..on a un vent sibérien

  4. Dans l’angle du plafond, est-ce une famille d’araignées très douées en structures et en géométrie ?
    Personnellement, quand j’ai fixé les meubles de la cuisine, j’étais tout seul et cela m’allait bien. JLFB (c’est codé !) m’avait bien facilité le travail en me fournissant un rail que je pouvais facilement fixer au mur avant d’y accrocher les meubles.
    Bravo, Michel, et une belle fin de journée à toi et à Janine.

    • Oui cela se veut être une toile d’araignée mais une vieille dans sa catégogie , ayant probablement déjà reçu des coups de balai aussi hasardeux qu’inefficaces .
      Le coup du rail sustentateur est génial . Je ne suis pas surpris, Gilles.

  5. Doug Thomas says:

    The drawing is as charming as it is instructive!

  6. A beautiful family project! It’s not easy and hats off for the undertaking of this challenge! ❤️

  7. Indeed, your sketch is wonderful!

    Family is everything!

    Your illustrations add so much interest. Yes, it is always a good thing to work together as a family…it also can be a bit frustrating to have to hold something firm and still for a long time. I’m glad her arms were strong and she didn’t tire easily…

  13. Rachel says:

    Very heavy work to put a large cupboard up! I know, because we recently moved my bookcases and it was not an easy task.
    We have sunshine today, but it is still cold. The days grow longer and I am looking forward to sprin. 🌼

    • I imagine : moving book cases is not easy, Rachel
      I heard there was a lot of snow in the Noth -East of the US . But fortunately I see in Michigan you have a sunny weather , cold but without much snow . ❤

  14. YAY for Rene! It IS wonderful to work as a family and to have good helpers in the family!
    “Many hands make light work.” 🙂
    YAY for Michel! Your drawing/illustration is such fun and explains what is happening! 🙂
    Cats and dogs are always good supervisors to the work being done! 😉 😀
    (((HUGS))) 🙂 ❤

    • Finally there are two poles in this humble sketch: my cousin René at work and ….the observer cat !!!:)
      Thanks for your appreciation about the fun brought by this sketch . It was my goal, Carolyn ❤ But so quickly made ! ❤

  15. mrswrangler says:

    An interesting illustration of a family task.

  16. Resa says:

    It is a fine time when family’s work together.
    So, the cupboard is up very high. Is it for the cat? Is this why the cat watches on?
    Fun sketch, Michel! xo ❤

  17. Gayle says:

    Yes..it is wonderful to see families work together!! Love your drawing Michel…especially the cat watching!!
    Hope you and Janine are well…

    • Yes , Gayle, this sketch is a illustration of the familial solidarity but we have to admit the cat looks like an very interested observer making plans to get into the ccupboard when…needed !!!! 🙂

  18. calmkate says:

    ha my father was like that … he with the help of a few tradie cousins built our family home, the elder brother and I were the labours. But dad built the cupboards, stairs, etc … he went to classes especially to learn how to do it well!

  19. Julie says:

    Its wonderful when a family comes together to help each other. Your drawing of the activity is wonderful. We have a cat who likes to join in when we are doing work in the house as well. I have jobs already planned for John to do when the spring arrives and the days get warm , which hopefully will be soon.:-)

    • Yes it is so good to have a helping family . courage to John for the spring works .
      It looks the cats love to be around when something news is coming
      We hasten to be at spring and get rid of this darn virus !!!

      • Julie says:

        The cupboards look very smart indeed 🙂 Yes hopefully there will be no more restrictions now , here all restrictions have been lifted which is great news

      • Lifted restrictions will be appreciated , Julie but we have to be prudent . A sonhave bee tested positive last week and this week this is another one !

  20. Cheers to family working together – including your contribution of the drawing. 😉 Unfortunately, my family is not large enough or close enough to do that, so I would hire someone.

  21. Marion says:

    It’s hard work, but worth it for the end result! 🙂

  22. murisopsis says:

    Sparky would rather do almost anything to hanging shelves! It is always a family effort here too!

  23. Angie J Poynter said on FB:
    Thank you for sharing this!

  24. Sartenada says:

    Hello Michel. Very nice work. Working together is much meaningful than to do it alone. I love your drawing which tells with 1000 words how it all went. The cats always are curious and the watch what happens around them. I speak to flowers and they will reward it by blooming long and beautifully. I also send positive thoughts to the dogs on the street that come against me. Dog owners always wonder why they want to come greet me. LOL.

    Have a wonderful day. Amitiés,
    Matti

  25. LGail says:

    Even the cat is interested in the installation of the cupboard. ☺️🐈❣️
    It’s always goo to read about you and your family and to see your drawing. I hope you’re doing well

  26. Lavinia Ross says:

    Yes, even the cat is helping! 🙂 It is wonderful when family work together to get something done. I love your drawing, Michel!

    Much love to you, Janine and the family, ❤️
    Lavinia

  27. cocosangel says:

    Sounds very funny, the way you have explained, the cupboard was handled.
    Nice drawing.
    I like how you say, your cousin, who talks to Seals… 😀 😀

  28. Zakiah says:

    Love the sketch and the explanation. he is great handyman who can tackle everything….from peeling potatoes to putting the kitchen shelves up!

  29. Louisa - Midlife Wellness Coach says:

    Comme le chat, je suis émerveillée par le spectacle et aussi par ton dessin ci-dessus!!!

  30. Rachel says:

    Well done, Rene! They look very nice, and will be very useful in the kitchen. I am glad it all worked out. 🌹

  31. neilc693 says:

    Those cabinets are very nicely done. And since they were chosen, they will surely fit the needs like a hand in glove ! As a renter I’ve only ever had cupboards that were already installed, which of course all but guarantees a poor fit with one’s requirements.

  32. Oh, good! They do look so clean and beautiful! Bravo, René! Well done! 🙂
    I like your idea of labeling them, Michel! 😉
    I hope the cat is right. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  33. Teri Stockton Ramirez said about the up date :
    Nice job! It’s amazing what can be accomplished when we work together.

  34. Nancy Stuebs said on FB:
    It turned out beautifully. Light and modern!! Good job!

  35. I ❤ your sketch! Hard work to install those cupboards, I bet. The kitchen is lovely – stylish and efficient.

    • When you want to do things by yourself and like in this case of installing 8 cupboards and other furnitures , Caroline, it takes a lot of time, patience and the support of the family. . ❤

  36. Caro says:

    Bravo 👏c est très joli je peux passer commande 🤣.elle a de la chance Sylvie d avoir un père bricoleur 😉
    Passez un bon dimanche je vous embrasse

  37. suester7 says:

    I like how the cat watches over everything in your drawing! 😉

  38. kmaidy says:

    bonjour Michel,
    c’est moderne et bien pratique , nous n’avons jamais assez de rangement dans une cuisine !
    J’avais toujours apprécié chez ma grand-mère, elle avait en plus du buffet de cuisine, tout un mur de placard du sol au plafond !
    Mais n’importe qui ne peut pas installer de tels éléments, il faut que cela soit vraiment solidement fixé !
    bises sous un peu de soleil qui réchauffe les coeurs !

  39. Marion Manson said on FB:
    It looks really good!

  40. bernard25 says:

    Bonjour MICHEL joli travail

    Chaque jour, il faut prendre le temps
    De regarder et écouter les autres

    Il faut oublier notre petit “moi”

    La vie est faite de bons moments
    Qui nous arrive à chaque instant

    Remercions la journée qui vient de s’écouler
    Que celle qui arrive soit encore plus belle

    Profitons de la nature elle est remplie de merveilles,
    de chaque instant présent

    Je vous souhaite une belle journée de bonheur
    Bise Bernard

  41. L. Marie says:

    Maybe the cat will jump up to explore the cupboards!
