Our Kitchen

They actually showed up today to install the kitchen!! Yeah!! I cannot wait until it is completely finished. The cupboards were even nicer then I thought, which is always a bonus :) Tomorrow the installers (Steve and Steve, father and son, makes me laugh) will be done with their part of it. We were fortunate enough to stumble upon West Valley Ceramic for our tile. I believe we were working with Dana. She was GREAT! First person in our search for tile to sit there and take the time to help us find the right colors to go with our cabinets. We just kept a door off one of them and brought the whole thing in. She was able to help us find a nice tile for the floor, laminate for the counter and a back splash to help set off the counter. So, two more weeks and all that will be done! We will go talk to someone about carpet tomorrow. Painters come tomorrow also. Only a couple more weeks and it will mostly be over with. Not sure what is up with the siding guy. He showed up yesterday, stayed for a few hours then took off and we haven't seen him since. And of course we are experiencing a little hiccough with our water heater. The water comes out nice and hot for 30 seconds then turns lukewarm. We've turned the knob as high as we dare and still no hot water for longer then 30 secs. After talking with Tom today it seems a part upstairs may have been put in backwards or a switch of some sort left the wrong way and it's diverting the hot or cold water (not sure I get it) the wrong way. The plumber will be here nice and early, 6:30 am tomorrow, to fix it.

I've been a little busy so I haven't been blogging, but so exciting to see the progress. You have to be so excited to almost be done. It looks beautiful.
