Oh, wait until you see these pics. More beautiful than I had imagined. I've included pics of a couple of the guys who did this beautiful cabinet installation. Don't they do good work?
Lighting didn't happen today but in the next day or two. Plus a little more tile work and some clean up so I can start to get living room and dining room back to normal. I also can have the appliances delivered and installed, except the dishwasher. I think I'll schedule that for Monday.
The countertop guy did the template today and he's going to try to have it in on the 23rd. He couldn't promise but if not that, then the first day or two of the following week. And then it's just plumbing and backsplash to finish.
My contractor has convinced me I ought to add some spice cabinets in the space on either side of the window. I think I must.
Enjoy today's pics:
