Yes, too many.

I plan to close up the doorway into the hallway, build kitchen cabinets along that wall and install my new Viking stove over there too with a nice range hood. I'll also be adding a dishwasher and moving the laundry into the back corner. Let's not forget my little screamer, Hanai, who is always in the middle of the floor for you to trip over.
But, reality check.
Right now it looks like a bomb went off in my kitchen:

The original mailbox was in the way of where a landscape drain needs to go. It had a pink post--much like the rest of the house--that I repainted green. It's placement was practical but not aesthetically pleasing.
IMO, mailboxes distract the eye away from the house and rarely function as a decorative attribute.
But they are a necessity--no one wants their mail fluttering down the street in the wind
Stumbled across this townhome mailbox at a Sears Hardware store closing sale for $8. Now the mailbox is 'hidden' behind a column and the old one removed, whixh was in the way of a much-needed landscape drain. So....progress.

But which one?
Just got this section of kitchen floor pulled up that was patched with mismatched wood. The blue floor must have been a porch floor before. Think I'll just leave that as the subfloor. The joist at one end is compromised by old termite damage. So I have the option of pulling these up, sistering the joist, and relaying. Or going under the house to do it. Or just skipping it altogether.
Looks like they're all face nailed. That's good. That means only a few would have to come up.
The joist already has been sistered, it's just the nails aren't grabbing. That means none have to come up so long as its not going to be walked on.
I'll just facenail it and build a kitchen penninsula over it.

The following night we had the dingo. Alex moved the dirt on his property then dropped it off to me.
