My cabinets were delivered today but....
I was so looking forward to my cabinets being delivered today. Well, they came, and when I saw the doors and drawers, they looked like I expected - cherry, shaker style, etc. BUT... I couldn't spend very long inspecting the cabinets (they weren't done delivering them before I had to leave to go to the office), but I did look them over enough to discover that the boxes and shelves are particle board! I was really upset, to say the least!!
From the very beginning with the KD, I had said that I did NOT want particle board. She wrote plywood boxes in her notes and the contract definitely says plywood boxes. But that is not what I got! (These cabinets were not at all in-expensive, by the way.)
I called the GC, and he told me it was "furniture grade particle board", "stronger than plywood", "greener", essentially formaldehyde-free, etc., etc. Whether or not that is all true, it is not what I agreed on. The GC was to contact the KD (his sister), but I haven't heard any more yet. I really don't know what to do about it.
My DH does not want me to delay things (obviously re-ordering would do so), but I am very unhappy with the way things are right now. I so wanted to be excited (was even going to try to post pictures) at this point, but all I am is disappointed. I know I will have trouble sleeping tonight!
