I stopped by Andi and Neil’s house yesterday to see how things were going. They are getting close to being done! The cabinets and trim look fabulous thanks to all of Chris & Kent’s hard work. The to do list is getting much shorter and the end is almost in site (although I’m not sure Andi & Neil would agree with this right now). The countertops were templated last Friday, unfortunately we are looking at another 1-2 weeks before they can actually be installed (it appears that one of the downsides of using the Ikea countertop companies is that their cue is quite long). The contractors will be finishing up most of what they can do until the countertops are installed today. The items left on the list:
-Undermount trim for the upper cabinets (we need to get the clips for these, for some reason Ikea didn’t supply them like they should have).
-Missing side panel for one of the upper cabinets (we need to get this and then have it painted)
-Last of the crown molding for the upper cabinets (waiting for missing side panel)
-Make removable side panel for fridge. This will have a tackboard on the upper part and a chalkboard on the lower part.
-Pick up last set of doors and drawer fronts at painters
-Finish Priming Walls (scheduled for today)
-Paint walls creamy yellow
-Finish sealing wood floors
-Install pendant lights (after a couple of weeks on backorder they are finally ready to be picked up at the store)
-Pick out small piece of butcherblock for counter above radiator (possibly at Home Depot or Ikea)
-Install sink and dishwasher
-Patch walls after counter in installed around opening to Sunroom
-Decide on knobs for upper cabinets and handles for drawers. We decided to wait on this until we see the countertops in place.
-We decided to wait on this until the counters are installed. Tile will go on the north wall backsplash behind the stove.
