Expanding Foam in the Kitchen Cabinet Kickspace

While trying to find the coldest place in the cabin last week, Kenny noted that the corner of the kitchen under the cabinets was bumping against zero.  Both Donna and I commiserated that in the mornings if we weren't wearing socks, we could feel a breeze coming from beneath them.

As such, I grabbed two cans of "gap filler" foam and attempted to dislocate my shoulder and get the cans in underneath the cabinets to foam against the juncture of the wall and floor.

I think I didn't do half bad if I do say so myself.  I used up two whole cans just for this band, but now the temperature under the cabinets seems to be high single digits, and no more breeze!  This area isn't visible normally, and whenever I get around to adding the face boards to it, it will be enclosed and out of sight, out of mind.

The coldest corner of all.  This was also the hardest to reach!

Good steady stream here, even with obstacles.

And against the south wall.  I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.
