Something that has been in the works for a few months, that I haven't mentioned, is we (well, really, Steve) are changing out our cabinets and in the process, will have to get a new counter top. (darn) While we haven't definitely picked out the counter, Steve has been busy working on the cabinets. Remember when I left for Minnesota? He had just started taking down the upper cabinets. I did help with the first one!
Here's what the new uppers look like:
It seems strange to have a cabinet along the outside of the range hood, there will be one on the outside of the stove, too!
We're very happy with the upper cabinets. Steve did a good job.
The next phase was to get the lower cabinets out along the peninsula, which he did a week or so ago.
The step after that was to get the peninsula counter top off, without wrecking the walls.
Now he can put in the lower cabinets that go along this side.
We can't do anything about the counter top until all the lower cabinets are put in. In the meantime, we'll use plywood, I think.
Getting rid of that tile is a good thing!
Thanks for letting me share.
