Yes, Labor Day has come and gone and our kitchen remodel still isn’t finished. A little bit of progress was made last week, but the measurements for the counter tops still haven’t been done. Hopefully that will happen this week, but not today. Nothing is being done today.
Last week, more electrical work got done on Monday. The electricians have been fabulous. We have wonderful LED lighting under the cabinets, and a new pendant light over the sink.
Unfortunately, no more work was done on the kitchen until Friday. But a lot was accomplished that day. The other two windows went in, and the window and door casings were installed. They look great.
Also, the baseboards are almost completely done.
This week I’m hopeful that the work that remains to be done on the windows, primarily the outside caulking, will get done, as well as the painting of the trim and the second coat on the walls.
The range hood is supposed to go in and the surround for the vent pipe built. The pantry is still without the roller drawers, so maybe they will finally get installed, and maybe the drawer that needs to be cut down to accommodate the chase will be finished. The dishwasher and disposal are supposed to be wired this week, but they can’t be installed until the counter tops are done. But at least I can do a little bit of cooking now, and clean up is much easier with a functioning sink.
And we are still awaiting the installation of the crown molding on the top of the cabinets and the shelf for the microwave, and a few other odds and ends.
When it is finally complete, I think the kitchen is going to be fabulous. I’m getting ready for the day it’s finally done; I have bought shelf and drawer liner, and I have been giving a lot of thought as to where I am going to put what. I won’t have quite as much storage in this kitchen as I had in the kitchen of my previous house, but there is still a lot of cupboard space, and it’s going to be a totally kick-ass kitchen. I can hardly wait for it to be completed.
