Nov. 28 – Monday
Tom was very good about sending me picture updates of what was going on in the kitchen the week I was in Utah. ¬†I just was not very good about posting them here on the blog. ¬†So, better late than never.
Nov. 29 – Tuesday
Wednesday – Nov. 30
The wall tiles finally arrived. ¬†There were REAL problems in getting this tile. ¬†I had purchased it back in October to make sure that I was not the reason for a delay in the kitchen. ¬†When I tried to pick it up a few times before I was leaving town I was told by Jamie that it would be available to pick-up in a few days. ¬†Shame on me for believing him. ¬†As it turned it he was not being honest with me. ¬†When I went in to pick it up on the promised Friday before I was leaving – again it was not there. ¬†I then told Jamie that I was leaving town and that this was not acceptable. ¬†He told me that he would deliver the tile to my house when they installed the counter tops. ¬†Well…………………..when he went to bring the promised tiles to my house they were THE WRONG TILE! ¬†Needless to say – I was not very thrilled about all of this.
Not to worry, the Friday after Thanksgiving he sent a driver out to Long Island to pick up the correct tiles only to find out they were the wrong tiles also. ¬†Now I am getting really worried. ¬†As Jamie started to call around he was not finding any of the tiles that we had order. ¬†He then expanded his search and ended up finding some down on the¬†Jersey shore.
One good thing about the missing tiles – it was keeping the heat off of Pedro for a few days.
Dec. 1 – Thursday
The keyboard drawer is installed.
The file cabinets drawers
the kitchen drawers
and the doors on the pantry.
I LOVE the beautiful crown molding. ¬†I am really pleased with the work that Pedro is doing.
Dec. 2 – Friday
the stove (but the gas line will be attached after the wall is grouted and sealed)
Overview of the kitchen with the¬†appliances.
Here is a problem child, because of the thick thick casings we have it hits the frig door here on the corner. ¬†Pedro and Tom are thinking that some brown wood there like it on the side of the cabinet (see below). ¬†WRONG – I said that whatever they did it had to be something that would be white.
I am getting really excited to see all of this in person. ¬†It has been hard to be away and know all of this work is going on – but I had a wonderful time with Emily, Ben and the kids.
