Photo Time – Phase 1

All morning, things here have been busy. Out with the old, not very well built sink cabinet and in with the new.

They are beautiful, they are more than we could have ever imagined. Jerry – the cabinet guy rocks and B who lent a huge helping hand – words can’t even describe how indebted we are to you.

I know that this design set up is, most likely, not for most – but for us to get the feel we wanted and utilizing the little space we had – this was the best option, unless we extended the kitchen. That isn’t going to happen and we always love a good challenge.

This is only pictures of the cabinets and not the full kitchen. I feel that after the sink is set and the granite is installed then I’ll try to get a full shot of that wall. If I can’t then I’m sure my father-in-law can since he actually knows what he is doing.

So here are the photo’s of phase one:

Phase one is now done and in the morning we move onto phase 2 – granite anyone?


Happy V-Day to us!

It has been a while, I know. Work has been CRAZY. There are no other words to describe the mayhem I walk into every morning now. There have been snow storms which had set the kitchen reno back a good week. There have been miss communication with the granite peeps which set things back – Damn e-mail. All is good now.

Today is the day when the cabinets are coming! WOOT!!!!!

There will be photo’s to take, photo’s to upload, and photo’s for all to see.

Tomorrow the granite will be installed. WOOT!!!

By the end of the week I expect to see the stainless top done and installed, if not sooner.

Things are moving fast and after waiting for almost 5 years to find the right people, who will not rip you off, I will be doing cartwheels when it is finally done.

There is still the issue of lighting that we need to make decisions about. I can wait a bit longer on lighting it’s a huge decision and we’ll let the kitchen speak to us about what type and what is appropriate for the space.

Stay tuned…time to rip out the last kitchen cabinet and the sink.

Just a Peek

I took a little trip yesterday to see this:

I could get into the whole story of how it felt that the forces we’re not in my favor of me getting to my destination. Naaah, not worth ruining the moment.

We are a couple weeks behind schedule on the cabinets and the husband and I are happy about it. It takes some of the pressure off of us to complete the kitchen floor and walls within the week. The Progress of the floor has been so slow it is starting to remind me of a government project.

The floor and I needed a break from one another in order to protect the walls. I was having many thoughts of throwing the 5-in-1 to see if it would stick in our kitchen wall like a Chinese star – I would say this kind of thinking warrants a break.

This afternoon we will meet with the cabinet guy to drop off the apron front sink at our usual halfway meet up point. There appears to be a slight mis-communication, mis-understanding about how the sink actually fits with the whole cabinet. No big deal really, just some minor adjustments have to be made.

Off now to hunt down some specifications for the sink.
