Well, exciting day here in Hancock.
I got up at 7 am (very early for me) to await the arrival of the contractors. They were about an hour late but they are here now working.
The kitchen designer came to remeasure with the contractor and make sure the new refrigerator from Nate and Dan would fit with the design as planned. It does. He brought me sampled for the countertop and I chose one. How funny is this... it's called Raven's Gemstone. Too cool. I picked a paint color for the walls too and will probably use the same one in the bathroom if they paint that (which they might not do).
The Company is Wilsonart Home. The photos on their site don't much look like the actual thing. I took one of my own of the sample and downloaded a photo with the Tibetan Sky (cool name isn't it?) paint color.
Meanwhile there are two nice young men digging and pounding outside my front door. They will do the frame, I guess and lay cement and then leave it all to set all day tomorrow. I was going to try and take pictures of the progress and "men at work," but it's too awkward to do that and I don't have their permission and am shy to ask, so...
Wednesday, they'll come and finish up. Yippee! Next Tuesday, they will start the bathroom. Kitchen cabinets take three weeks to be made so the work in the kitchen is probably 3-4 weeks off. Work in the bathroom will take 4-5 days. I'm going to have two very unhappy kitties but they are going to have one very happy human.
