I visited my cabinets this morning!
DH and I stopped by my cabinet maker's shop this morning, and he gave us a tour of the progress so far. All the construction is complete; the doors and drawer fronts are done. They were staining the last box when we arrived, and are about 75% with finishing. When that's done, hardware installation begins.
It was so cool to see my sketches come to life! Everything looks beautiful. DH just laughed when I had to walk around and look at every single piece - Dan the Cabinet Man said he wasn't surprised - he's gotten to know me pretty well!
Installation starts next Wednesday - I can hardly wait! The Cambria fabricator is on standby, and Dan will schedule templating with him as soon as he knows when the base cabinets are will be in place.
A week from today I should have some progress photos for you!
