Nathan’s favorite new toy…
Steve and I were so lucky to have his mom here this past week helping us out with the kitchen. It ended up being perfect timing. She did so much dusting, vacuuming, Windexing, etc. that she was sore and exhausted each night! She was so helpful, we tried to beg her to stay longer… here’s a picture of Anthony trying to pin her down.
Thank you “Grammie” for all your help! We love you!
Steve’s parents came this weekend to help us out since our kitchen is so close to being usable. We were actually able to cook our first dinner on the stove… spaghetti! Yum! It had been way too long since we had spaghetti. Grandpa had to drive back to Pittsburgh so his trip was very quick, less than 24 hours but Grandma is sticking around for another week to help us move into the kitchen.
Today was a very busy day with two runs to Lowes and lots of painting. We are so excited about our new kitchen!!
The kitchen is coming along, only 6 months in…
- We got the granite in and it’s gorgeous!
- The hole for the bathroom sink was cut too small so they have to come back to make it bigger, so the sink isn’t connected in the bathroom.
- They have to buy some clips for the kitchen sink so we’re waiting on that to install the sink, garbage disposal, faucet, and dishwasher.
- The tile backsplash is ordered and will be here on Monday so we can start installing that.
- Steve finished his bookshelf and the molding is done* (still needs to be painted and won’t officially be done until the range hood is in and it’s cut to fit snug.)
We’re so close… yet so far away. Lots of little things that still need to be done but hopefully we’ll be able to move into the kitchen here in the next week so Grandma DeLuca can help us settle in.
It’s been a little over 7 weeks since the kitchen remodel has started and the last two weeks there has been a lot of progress. The beam is up (the wall isn’t out yet), the floor is all pulled up, and the framing is installed. Luckily Steve doesn’t start work until next week because he’s been really involved with planning. The kitchen is going to look incredible. We can’t wait! Here’s some pictures
I took them with our fisheye to get the whole thing in view (I need to buy a wide angel lense), makes it look like our kitchen is shaped like a wine barrel
