Phew..this one took a while.
The most aggravating part of any remodel is waiting for people and product and accommodating delays in both. Months ago I read an alarming article about Iran and its nuclear reactors. The author stated that Tehran could get all the plutonium it needed for a bomb in just four months.
Shoot.. I couldn’t get a pick-up truck’s worth of good old American, standard, kitchen cabinets delivered in four months!!
As if to drive home how long Lowe’s was taking, a brand new hotel under construction down the street went from dirt to four stories quicker than I went from order to installation… talk about having it rubbed in your face every day when you take your walk..
But we are finished, and right now that’s all that matters.
Before and after pics:
New counters, flooring, LED lighting, backsplash, sink, appliances. (I tried to save the stove..I did!)
Added butler’s pantry in empty room off kitchen where previous owner kept his dogs.
Had to keep the kitchen cabinets- (that many new cabinets would have been way too expensive.)
