Moving Day is Tomorrow

flevyNovember 7, 2012

We move into our new house tomorrow. Today was a very busy day getting the house ready. The granite team arrived bright and early.

First in were the perimter counters---Premium Black Brushed. It has a leather finish.

Then came the master bath vanity--Carribean Green

The Shower Bench--Durango Travertine

The kids vanity--Azul Macubus

And then the island--Sea Pearl.

It barely cleared the door. The lead guy was measuring the doorway all morning. When they were bringing it in, I don't speak Spanish, but I got the jist of what was being said :)

One Two Three...Lift

A little fussing

And it's in place!

Thanks for letting me share. It's been a very exciting day. Too add to the excitement the plumber called me around 3pm. He had finished his last job early and had some time to come over this afternoon if I wanted him to start hooking up the facuets and the dishwashers!!!! Yes Please!!! So tomorrow when the kids and I move in I will have running water in the kitchen. The range (Lacanche) has shipped from the factory and is expected Friday or Monday. Now if only the cabinet company could send my remade fridge panels just a week bit quicker all would be good.

Love traditional homes.....never know when they were built....never out of style. Always seem like the ultimate family gathering place.

So much accomplished in one day! It looks great, and I hope the rest of the final details like the Lacanche install go as smoothly for you.

Congratulations!

P.S. more pics please as soon as you can!

Designnov... I'll look for the tile box. Sorry off the top of my head I can't remember the name of the tile.

Wondering if you could tell me how your Sea Pearl is holding up? Does it etch or stain? I looked at it today and am considering it for my counters. Thanks.

I would like to know too. I found Sea Pearl today that was polished on one side and honed on the other side.I can't decide which side I like better.

Is yours polished?

thanks, peke

Hey flevy, do you still like the sea pearl? What colors show up? Some people say gray or green or blue. Peke
