My House: Laundry, Measure Twice

I started cabinet research for the laundry room this weekend and this made me laugh:

My sad excuse for taking measurements...

And the husband's thorough, neat and um, correct version...

Yaaaa. Thank goodness for Mike, we make a great team :)

  8. that's awesome : ) It reminded me of the time I told my husband the way I measured out a cup of water without a measuring cup. I told him, "just say, one-one-thousand, two-two-thousand slow and easy and that will be equal to one cup". My husband didn't believe me so he made me try it right there and then, and guess what? It came out to about 3/4 cup and I was shocked--my method had failed: ) Yep, my husband is definitely the more accurate measurer of the two of us : )

  9. haha! Love it! Gord wouldn't draw it better but would definitely take proper measurements. And for sure would install himself. Actually I like it this way because it's too meticulous for my liking.

    1. haha, totally - mine is way less fuss. I think I got mooost of the measurements right and said close enough on the few that I thought mattered less. I think I just knew I'd get Mike to do it again to make sure it was right!
