New cabinets… Le sigh….

Standard

So, yesterday was a fairly pokey day regarding the kitchen. Had 2 new guys appear at the door at 9:00 and they only worked until 12:00. They put in and moved outlets around. The old kitchen configuration only had 1 outlet on the main stretch of wall. Any modern kitchen needs 1 outlet about every 2 feet – there are so many gadgets & gizmos to plug in. I now have 3 at the main section, plus 2 more on the wall where there have never been cabinets before. They finished 2 of them completely and wired for 2 more before leaving. Not happy with the minimum of work but at least they were thorough.

They appeared again today. They finished the outlets and commenced working on cabinets. Man oh man, did they make up for yesterday. First, I walk into the kitchen to see this:

Initial cabinets up.

An hour or so later I see this:

Kitchen 6

Previously naked wall with upper cabinets installed.

It just gets better and better. By the end of their working day (3:00 pm), this is what I have:

I knew this wall needed cabinets. Look at all that storage space!

The hub of kitchen, now sleek and lovely. Can't wait to see it with base cabinets and the stove.

They should be done on Monday. I can have my granite people out to make their template. It is going to be so freaking beautiful, I don’t think I can stand it….
