Cheaper Things

Before I forget to say this...I found the same cabinet pulls that I decided to get for $.80 less each.  Doesn't sound like much but when you need 56 it really adds up. It's good to google the product name and number because you never know where you might find something less expensive.  Of course, once I placed the order on Monday, I got an out of stock notification telling me it would be 7 to 10 additional days on Tuesday and a shipping notification on Wednesday.  They got delivered on Friday.  Crazy!

Week 13

So we are heading into week 13.  WEEK 13!!!!  Ok, now that I got that off my chest, I'll tell you what's been going on.  All of the cabinets were to be delivered on 4/13.  That didn't happen so it was pushed off to 4/18 which would have been ok but we only got 4 or 5 that day.  A couple more things came on Friday and I was assured by the cabinet maker that the cabinets would be here so they could be installed beginning on Monday.

My day started off with text messages from the builder because his guys were there and ready to start at 7:30 (as they are every day...they're awesome) but no cabinet guy.  He did show up a little after 9 and lots of cabinets are at my house, hopefully being installed while I type this.  I can't wait to go home and look.  I only hope I'm not disappointed.  The reason this is stressing me out (besides the fact that it's already been 12 entire weeks) is because the granite template guys are coming on Wednesday and I would love to get the fabrication started.  The sooner the better.

Besides that, nothing much is happening.  The backsplash tile is ordered.  I think it's going to be really nice.  This is a sketch of the detail over the cooktop.  If you click on the picture you can see it better.  Anyway, this is just what I was imagining.  It seems that the kitchen designer and I were of like mind. 

I'll have to update if anything happened since I left this morning.
