Slow Progress is Better Than No Progress

I feel I am living in slow motion with this remodel. Seriously! I feel that things were really clipping along and then BAM!! All the final details seem to be taking forever!

SO, here is the window that was delivered for over the sink. Hmmmm – notice anything not quite right??? I obsessed in this remodel on everything being balanced and in symmetry. I made it into a big deal! Literally! So, why would I order a casement window over the sink that was not centered with the sink? I didn’t! ┬áSo they went ahead and installed it and ordered the correct window – to be rushed of course.

Here is the correct window!

The panels have now been placed on the fridge and dishwasher – plus the hardware was installed!!

We have a faucet, which means running water. That is always a plus. We even have a disposal now!

Our backsplash was put in this week!! I love my beveled subway tile. Plus our electrician put in the LED under the cabinet lights. Now my trim guy needs to come back and finish out the window. Oh – that will take forever because I am sure he is on another job.

 

Front door has had one coat of tung oil on it. Waiting to see how much is absorbed.

Even more fun and games is putting everything back in it’s place! But first you have to wash and dust most of it! Takes for-freakin-ever!!! Never in my life have seen the dust that we have here!!

Then in the middle of all of this the dang AC unit upstairs pan overflowed!!!! Just lovely. Now our freshly painted ceiling in our family room has a monster patch on it. Just when I thought I was finished with drywall dust! We are just thankful that we were home when it happened! Now, the pan has a sensor in it that will turn the unit off when water gets in it. Pretty genius! Wonder why it did not have that already as it is only about 3 years old???

My to-do list is so, so very long!!! I just want to snap my fingers and it be done! I love instant gratification……………….don’t you?

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you will visit again or subscribe.

Catch ya later gator!!

Demo & Dust on Delaware – Kitchen Cabinets Arrive Today!

I am a tad bit nervous with the installation starting today with our kitchen cabinets. I sure hope I like them. No, actually I sure hope I love them. It is such a big investment.

Here is the blank slate of what things look like this morning – from the family room looking into the kitchen. Our Bella loves to be where the camera is.

And this is from the breakfast room looking through the kitchen to the family room.

I will post photos as the installation progresses!
