Notes: Main refrig is undecided. I don't like KA curved handles else I'd be fine with the $5999 stainless! The KA with panels will be ~$7000 after paneling; for $1000 more I could be swayed to go to the SZ/Viking product. I had been under the impression that a panel-ready refrig would be cheaper than SS, but am wrong. We don't NEED 2 compressor SZ action (we shop 2-3x per week by choice, no stinky foods really, have a backup fridge if things go wrong, no need for the "name" since not selling soon or impressing anyone). But man, for $1k more, I'm tempted to say why not.
For the second refrig, we just wanted a solid backup fridge for the pantry, hence the Amana.
We are having our GC price out some basic cabinetry pedastals to see if he can beat $192 x 2.
Be interested in everyone's thoughts on value for money/alternatives; $20k is in our price range. We have not done in-depth reviews on the clothes W/D, beverage center, oven-door style MW. Thank you in advance!
