Kitchen Re-model pretty much done

I know that I left you in the dark on the kitchen remodel.  I guess a girl gets working appliances and she disappears. 

Here is the flooring going in (thanks Mike).

The floor installation went pretty well AFTER we tore up the first installed flooring in the foyer, bathroom, and hallway.  After a few weeks, a haze started to appear on the flooring.  After research the flooring got horrible reviews and others complained of the same thing.  So we tore it up and started all over again.  PAINFUL!

That wasn’t even the worst part about it.  Since we had to take up the flooring in the bathroom we needed to take a part the toilet and trim.  My brother in law Brian helped with this job.  It went fine until he pulled off one particular piece of trim.  Water started pouring into the bathroom through a nail hole.  Apparently a trim nail punctured one of the water lines.

A little set back and we still have the drywall to be patched.

By the end of labor day weekend we had this.

Best part of the refrigerator.  Probably not by accident that it has a shelf that fits 4 sippy cups perfectly!

This past week we got some of the detail work done and handles!  Amazing how much easier it is to open cabinets with handles.  I have to say that I love it!
