When the electrician arrived yesterday I had a small bag of Buckeyes just for him, as well as a little plate to munch on right then. He was here on Monday until 7pm. I think all he has left to do is come back and hook up the disposal/dishwasher circuit once the counter tops arrive and the sink is set.
The lights are up in the closets and over the sink, phone line works, puck lights are under the cabinets and the oven hood is functioning! On Monday, Dave did get the oven in too! :)
There is a bit of framing around the oven to be done, but what a BEAST!
On Tuesday, besides the electrician being back, Dave hung the hood and the pot rack. In this photo you can see the 'fridge - still not in it's place, the arch and the hood.
The lighting in the kitchen is great! My FIL stopped by yesterday to check on the progress and he asked Dave if Duke Energy is giving him a stipend?
The light I chose for over the sink matches the hood. It's stainless and glass. You can see here that the sink is in it's box in the spot where the refrigerator will go. I think today the 'fridge moves to its home. Also not in its correct place yet, the stove top sits on the sinks spot.
From the arched entry looking at the carport door you can see the island on the right with new hood and pot rack! We were a bit excited after Dave and Tash left today and we just had to bring the pots upstairs to get a sense of how it will look! There are lots of pieces of cardboard covering corners and the floor. The wood on top of the island is just temporary too.
I am thinking of investing in a paper towel company. Can you say fingerprints? Or to quote the magician in Frosty the Snowman, "messy, messy, messy...to coin a phrase."
Today, day 22, trim is being installed, caulk being done and the drywall guy, Gary, comes back tomorrow. Painting should happen on tomorrow or Friday.
