Dishwasher working!

July 14, 2009

Arturo came by last night and finished the necessary electrical stuff for the dishwasher.

We have been so busy lately and not home, that we have not made too many dirty dishes. We will have to get busy so we can run the new dishwasher.

Oh, and another trip to Ikea last night for more drawer insert thingys.

Countertops installed today!

July 8, 2009

Just back from vacation yesterday, and our guys from Precision countertop were here earlier than planned to install the countertops. Took them only about a half an hour!

In process:

And…. finished:

Up close… Caesarstone White Ash:

We loves it!

While home today I took a ride to Ikea to buy inserts and organizers for the drawers/cupboards. We have sooo much more space we are not sure what to put where! Will have pix of the nifty organization once that is done.

Friday the plumbing will come in. They will install the sink, disposal, dishwasher… and that will pretty much be it for the contractors.

We have to move the fridge in. Bree wants to wait till the last minute…until everything is done and new.

Of course we still have to do the backsplash. Why have we not narrowed down our tile for it yet?! That is not like us. I guess we just want a rest….Aaahh.

And…. this morning bright and early the cabinet installers (Olson Installation) arrived and started getting to it. They are fast and good! May be done today!

We did adjust a couple of our cabinet configurations and I had to make one run to Ikea for some supplies (2 panels). I got back at 11:15 and sooo much has already been done:

Finally, we get to start feeling useful!

May 18, 2009

We got alot done this weekend. Well, Rick got alot done first, then we got to work.

Rick finished sanding and prepping the walls. He did awesome! His work is done for a little while (he will be back after cabinets put in to do the duct for the microhood).

We cleaned up all the dust (which was not that bad…love that we have a shop-vac!), and already primed the whole room:

 What child labor laws????  Kyan helped out with the painting. She loved helping (we figured the primer step could be fun intro to painting for her):

P1020015

 We are really busy (with other stuff!) every evening this week, so this weekend we will paint color (once we decide on our color), and we will work on the window trim and preparing the subfloor for tiling. We like this part!
