Appliances are here!

Hi all,

Well, yesterday I talked to Bob Pendleton, my contractor about a few things.  He went to order the tile for the backsplash and they were out of stock.  So today I went back and picked out a different "color".  My sister, who went with me, said that it looks exactly the same.  I think it's a little lighter, but not much.

The electrician will be coming Monday or Tuesday.  The plumber decided to go deer hunting (bad timing!) so he won't be here until Thursday.  Backsplash tiles will be in Thursday.  So we're getting closer to finished.

The only appliance that's in place right now is the stove.  The rest are waiting for the electrical work.

Oven is in place!
Another shot of the stove side.  It's a convection oven with all these cool new features I'll have to figure out how to use.  
The dishwasher, and the microwave on top.  To the left you can see the side of the fridge.
The fridge is sitting backward so I can't get a good picture of the front, not enough space to get far enough away to take a picture.  
My faucet is still in its box, but here it is.  :)
Between the early morning delivery (7:30 a.m. on a Saturday!), the trips to the tile store, a trip to one pharmacy, a trip to the doctor's office, a trip to another pharmacy, switching out fridges and the task of figuring out which way the oven racks go in, I'm pretty tired!  I'm looking forward to having more to share next week as things get closer and closer to finished!


  1. Lovely, lovely, lovely! Good work, Ms Wilkins!

    1. I just now came back over from gazing at my new stove. Had to open the door and look inside. Found the meat temperature probe. Read some of the owner's manual.


Comments make me feel like I'm not talking to myself.
