Kitchen Remodel - Day 2

Here are two pictures of how the kitchen looked at 7am today.

That is the shot toward the L, no cabinets over there yet.  Note the sub-floor was skinned with wood prior to cabinets being set.

This picture is of the inside wall, one cabinet left to install on that side.

Last night, we received a computer call that the appliances were all being delivered between 8-10am.  Perfect.

Instead, the door bell rang at 7:10am, with me in jammies, while I was just waking the kids!!!  ACK!

Well, early is always better than late... so, it was just fine!

Here is the picture of the L section as of 1pm today!

They are installing more as I type this!  The refrigerator is also set in place on the inside wall, I will show pictures of that later!

We were not moving any walls, so obviously that is why they are able to go so fast.  However, every other place we got estimates from said 2-3 weeks, plus time for the countertop.  Sears Home Improvements was the only one that said less than week.  We didn't believe them!!! 

Hubby stayed home with me today because he saw how nervous I was last night!  I am so thankful!  He also knew I was tired and sore, so after the kids left at 8am, I went back to bed, and in spite of the noise I did sleep for about 4 hours!!! 

I love my Hubby!  He is out picking up lunch right now! 

More to come later...  I feel like I am hosting a home show!!! 

be well,
Dawn

Looking good!  My cabinets also came from Sears.  (28 years ago)  This year the first door came off.  I think that is a pretty good record.   I am thinking of having new doors and top put on as the cabinets are still sturdy.  What flooring did you choose.?  I need to decide.     Good luck with everything.      Pat

I was going to mention that it looked like an episode on HGTV.  Geez, I just love those cabinets.  I'm getting anxious to see the end result.  HUGS Chris

Dawn, I am so happy for you. Looks like they may finish it by the weekend. Guess you can't go wrong with Sears.
Good luck with it and try to get a nap every day, Bill
