Kitchen remodel finished like soap

kitchen remodel glass subway tile

All kitchens must have soap, and our kitchen is no exception. It is 99 99/100% finished. There are a couple panels and one errant drawer that needs to be replaced, but other than those pieces landing and being installed, it is all done. Now we begin the process of moving back in and deciding where things go. It’s nice to have access to a refrigerator in the house. We have not decide what to bake in the new ovens, and overall are in the ‘new car’ stage of the kitchen where we are having fun playing with it, but afraid to actually use it. There are still various odds and ends still needing to be purchased such as stools and shelf liners. Originally there was suppose to be a stainless steel backing and shelf behind the stove, but through some error it doesn’t fit by like a half an inch. Luckily we have the entire backsplash tiled (in case we were ever to take out the stainless steel backing) so it doesn’t have a giant hole above the cooktop. It’s been a fun journey but it is now enjoyably over, and we can get back to normal kitchen life. So many other kitchens are under construction, it will be great to see them all completed. Until then enjoy the final pix …

Kitchen remodel the appliances have landed

It seems to be a law that the closer to the end of a project it is, the slower the project seems to go. The appliances have at finally arrived and have been installed. Unfortunately there is some complication where the back stove shelf is neither available nor apparently will it fit even if it was. Something to do with the wall not being level. The cabinet doors for the sink were removed to work on the plumbing hookups and garbage disposal. When re-installed the doors were put on upside down, but at least this is easily corrected. The new microwave and island over were installed, and powered up, and with some tweeking here and there the refrigerator also is finally in. We were a little worried about the refrigerator as we ordered it as frameless. This isn’t done nearly as often in the us (for unknown reasons) as in Europe, but ended up with pleasantly clean lines. The final set of pictures will be with everything done (hopefully) and with all the paint also completed. But until then here are the latest pix …
