So yesterday the kitchen started to look like a real kitchen. Earlier this week they installed the floor which looks great and yesterday they wired the stove and microwave and put them in place and put a plug in for the fridge so it no longer is in the living room. They plumbed the fridge for water so I have ice and water in my fridge now.. I am so excited about that. They also wired and hung the under counter lights and moved the overhead light to the middle of the room so I actually can turn lights on when I come into the kitchen.
Next thing to do is to put the knobs and pulls on but I am waiting for them to be delivered. I am still vacillating on what countertop to put in. I sent away for a wood sample so I am waiting for that to be delivered too. They can't put my sink (the piece de resistance)in until I have a countertop which will probably take a minimum of 6 more weeks and then I have to decide on a backsplash and a paint color. We are getting down to the nitty gritty now.
Of course there are still 3 built ins that they are going to make for me. One will be a broom closet next to the fridge where I have an empty space. One will be a wonderful shallow pantry(yay) and the last one will be a window seat/dog crate area . Can't wait for that one too. Hopefully it will allow me to remove my dog crates from my living room.
