Kitchen remodel: The cabinets arrive

Cabinets arrive on Mark's trailerMark brought the cabinets to the house on his trailer this morning. I was worried because weather.com forecasted a 90% chance of rain. Mark told me to chill out though (no pun intended) because there was a zero percent chance of rain until 1:00 PM and, as usual, he was right. We are very excited to see how it looks. They got everything off the truck and into the garage about mid-morning and the path to the kitchen from the garage never goes outside, but through the laundry room so it is all good. The next thing is to figure out how to get the furniture into the house if stuff is drying or we would be in the way during the whole process. We might have to leave at least some of our stuff in the garage for awhile to wait for stuff to get finished. It is all supposed to be either finished or very close to it by the end of the month so this is a very minor inconvenience and we love to watch the work progress anyway.

Cabinets all lined up in the garage

I am not sure how far the installation will get today because there is some work that has to be done on the walls before they can start on that. Still, the cabinets should mostly be in place by the end of the weekend. I hope I am going to have time to put up some pictures, but we will mostly attending things and driving through Monday or Tuesday, after which we will be staying in the house full time (along with some of the builders, floor people, etc.).

  1. Mark was right, no rain Thursday morning. It made up for it in the afternoon. A thunderstorm hit, black clouds dropped an inch of rain in sheets or buckets full. Many said they had never seen it rain so hard. Moved North and caused a lot of damage to Lacey (may have been a tornado hit), trees down, power lines down, roads closed, power and water out. Definitely got everyone’s attention! Glad he got here in time.

  2. Gena, he sent us a video of how hard it was raining at the house that he took on his phone. Just wow! That look like a North Carolina or Texas storm. I think you guys are getting on an airplane today. Have a great trip and keep us posted! We are looking forward to seeing you in a week or two.
