Kitchen Remodel Week 5: Almost There!

There is a light at the end of the tunnel!  I know that 5 weeks might not seem a long time for a kitchen remodel, but for what we're having done, it kind of is. I'm getting antsy to get things moved back and organized, because it drives me crazy when I can't find stuff.

But it's looking really good, and the anxiety about how the shelves would look was unfounded.  I really like them!

The grout was supposed to be a light gray, but somehow that didn't get into the contract.  They were going to come back and fix it with the other stuff they have to do, but we actually like the white and think the subway tiles give enough texture to the back splash, so we're keeping it the way it is.

Thanks again Virgin Timber Lumber Co.! If you ever need custom wood working done (shelves, tables, etc.), these are your guys!

There are still a few little things that need to be taken care of, which means we can't fully move back in, but we can start in the areas that they won't need to work on.  And, hopefully, by the end of Tuesday, it'll be really finished.  :-)

 Here are a couple of shots with the lights all on.

This is the small butler's pantry, which is now a beverage station, with a beverage fridge, coffee maker, electric kettle. It's hard to see at this angle, but the fridge is sitting kind of tilted back, so that's another thing they have to fix.

 And here's the other side of the room.  It's not put together, yet, but you see where we're going with this...

There have been a few challenges, which I'll discuss in my next post about lessons learned, but all-in-all, it's been a really good experience.  I think it turned out really nicely, which is good, because I don't think we'll ever do something this big again!
