Piecing it together

Matt and our friend Nick, who has installed cabinets before and has woodworking skills, got a great start on the cabinets this weekend. We spent a lot of time on Saturday just figuring out what all the pieces were for and how it was all going together. It was frustrating, but I am glad they wanted to take their time and do it right. So, at the end of the day, we (by that I mean “they”) had one corner wall cabinet hanging. It looked beautiful! But Sunday, they were able to hang just about all of the others (and I do mean “hang,” even the floor cabinets are about an inch off the ground because of the unevenness of the floor). All that is left are the refrigerator cabinet and the one small cabinet right beside it on the opposite wall. We finally did move the refrigerator, and we both like its new location. It so much closer to the door so you don’t have to walk through the kitchen to get to it. Also still to do:

Order counters
Put the cabinet doors back on
Hook up the dishwasher and sink
Install garbage disposal
Install microwave (bought a dented one at the Sears Outlet for $150 on Friday)
Finalize the electrical (call electrician)
Install toe kick and moulding and wall trim
