Day 15

Every time I look at my cabinets and the walls and finished trim, I am so pleased with them.  What’s even better is that Brad is really pleased.  If the contractor is really happy about it, I figure we have a winner.  I was busy in the office working on quotes for a client all morning and then went out and spent the afternoon with Mom at the doctor.  By the time I got home , it was 6 p.m. and Brad had already gone.  So these are pictures from when I came home.

I was not surprised to see this – the roll is our new floor and it was in the garage when I left.  It was a bit too heavy for Brad, so when Eddie came home, he helped Brad carry it in.  Apparently he also has the laminate for the counters, that is down in the basement lying flat for the laminate guy on Tuesday.

He bought one that is 13′ so he can do it in one whole piece, no seams.

This is the stove’s lasting parking spot.  He was going to put it outside and then wasn’t sure it would fit through the cabinets. This way worked very well and when it is time for it to go, it will be through the front door.

Unfortunately it isn’t plugged in, it needs a more powerful plug than we have anywhere except where it was in the kitchen.  However, we managed fine without it and probably won’t be able to use it again – then again, who knows?

You can see the top of my pantry cupboard, I am so excited to have that for canned goods, etc., no more rummaging around in the back or things getting lost.

Brad spent a lot of the day putting shims under the cabinets to make sure they are level and plumb; then he was able to secure them to the wall.

This is the small cabinet next to the back door and the dishwasher.

These are the cabinets on either side of the stove.

One of the cabinets has rollout shelves – it is the one opposite to the stove – Cool!

I was so surprised and pleased to find we had this roll out next to the sink.  now I won’t have that ugly white garbage bin any more.   I love it!

This is the latest tour of the kitchen – Luzma from next door came by to see what we have been doing.  She thinks it is beautiful – I certainly agree with her.

    • Thank You so much Char – I just love going into the kitchen and admire everything. I am so pleased with how it all is coming together. If you need a good contractor, I know just the man.
