So very close!

We are so very close to a completed kitchen! Today was day 52 without a sink or stove, know..who's counting?

FINALLY the cabinets arrived!

Asher was pretty fascinated watching the whole unloading process. He sat here for a couple hours watching.

The first day was a lot of unloading and carrying, and basically staging the cabinets in the kitchen and garage. Then the put all the toe kicks down. Here's what it looked like at the end of the second day.

And I was oh so thrilled to come home at the end of today and see there are only a couple odds and ends of things that need to be completed or tweaked.

My favorite part at this point is the window seat. To the right of the window is the pantry, and to the left is a mail center. With doors. You know, so I can hide the mail away when people come over. LOL The fabric sitting there is what I found for the cushion cover. 

The cabinets are natural cherry, so over the next couple of months they will get darker as they're exposed to natural light.

So what's left to complete? Tomorrow the granite guy comes to make a template so the granite can be cut,  the overhead vent is scheduled to arrive and the drawer and door pulls get added.  Monday the electricians come to finish up wiring for the appliances and get electric to the island. It takes several days for the granite to be delivered, and until it's installed we still have no sink or stove but at least the fridge and microwave can go to their new homes!

I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel!
