We are so close and yet we are a month late

ck_squaredNovember 22, 2013

We finally see the end of this very long tunnel which started over a year ago with the initial planning.

Demo was end of August. We were scheduled to be done end of October (of course, I knew that wasn't going to happen).

Everything is done except UCL and OCL, island pendants, shelves in pantry, paint in closets and mud room, paint touch ups and final coat on the flooring. It was really a main floor remodel but the kitchen was the big thing.

As everyone seems to agree, and though some of us (me) don't ask a lot of questions of the board, we do gain much knowledge from all of you; professionals and amateurs alike.

So a big THANK YOU to all who unwittingly helped me during my search for information and helped answer questions (both asked and not specifically asked by me) throughout our process.

Now here's a little sneak peek:

We started our Reno the end of June and we are winding up, by Thanksgiving, but it will be Christmas before all is moved back into the house.

Love the cabinets!

Is that a soapstone countertop? Those cabinets look spiffy! :) What are you planning on for the backsplash, if any?

Thanks, chrissy. The photo does not do the counters justice. They are Fantasy Brown quartzite.

karen - I hear ya! I don't expect we'll be completely moved in until Chrismtas either. And I'd love to be able to host one or both families this year.

Roberta - The backsplash is in the photo leaning up against the wall. It's a glass tile, all one color, variegated size.

Not hosting any family other than those that hang out here everyday anyway!

Doing Bob Evans takeout Turkey feast on Thanksgiving. Might do the same or Der Dutchman for Christmas! :-)

Beautiful cabinets and counters! Can't wait to see the finished kitchen! BTW, what are your pulls? They are just what I am looking for.

What a teaser photo, but enough to tell it's going to be very beautiful indeed. Congrats on being functional by the holiday. That was my wish but alas not to be.

Thanks, everybody! We're really excited about the space.

legallin - the pulls are Richelieu 873, 228 mm in Brushed Nickel.
We originally loved (and still do) the Richelieu 8160 but when we got the sample home, thought it looked too wimpy with our cabs.

Here is a link that might be useful: Link to pulls

Don't you hate the anticipation? The gas got plumbed in for my cook top yesterday, but no cook top install. I am beyond sad that I am so close and can't cook this weekend.

Oh that looks gorgeous! Love the b/s tile. Do you need the phone jack there? It is easy to move some things around before the tile goes in...I wish I had.

You've given us a couple of other glimpses of those gorgeous walnut cabinets. I can't wait for your reveal!

I have serious Brown Fantasy envy.

At bookclub, the hostess had this quartzite in her kitchen, with white/cream? cabinets. I had never come across the BF, even though I had gone to same granite yard where she found hers a few years prior. IRL, it is so pretty.

Bookworm - funny story. We had seen this FB quartzite back in August when we looked at 4 different stone stores in one day. This was at the first place we looked. But I didn't love it so it didn't register with me until a month later when I saw it again at a nearby stone store.

Loved it there. Told my GC about it and he told me to go back to the first place (which was also his fabricator, btw). I made the drive (45 min. drive vs. 5 min. to the nearby store), saw the stone and loved it! By choosing that shop, we saved $$. It really does look so much better in person.

I am sure your kitchen will look great.

What color is your BS? Hard to tell from the picture.
