Graeme and Rebekah have reached the point of their reno where most of the BIG things are in place, and it's time to focus on the smaller details. But occasionally a big thing will pop back up and demand attention...
These photos document work done over a two week time frame. The first week I was out of town for work. During that time, the appliances were delivered and cabinetry was finished and installed. I couldn't wait to get back to see it all! It was wonderful being able to use a stove again, and I can't wait for the dishwasher to be hooked up. We haven't used one in about 3 years!!
Unfortunately, this week we found out that the countertops weren't ordered as planned. We had chosen quartz and, since nothing was in the works yet, the wait time will be anywhere from 3-8 weeks. We are talking with a company that can hopefully do this quicker — hopefully closer to a 3 week timeframe! However, this sets us back and our original project timeline is now long gone! I'm glad we never had an actual date set in our minds since it will be well over a month when all is said and done!
Goodness...we cannot wait for this to be complete and really start cooking and living in here!
Estimated time for project: 3 weeks
