We are really cooking now in the Bennett kitchen, um not literally, but we are getting really close. This is the fun part of a renovation. When the cabinets are installed I get really excited because the space and design finally starts to take shape. After the cabinets come all of the finish details like– backsplashes, shelving, appliances, hardware and light fixtures. We’ve already come along way with just the cabinets in!
The rain slowed us down a little but the crew worked under the cover of the porch and framed the banquette.
On Monday, one of our local stone fabricators, Blarney Stoneworks came to template the countertops and install is happening tomorrow. A lot of times in a kitchen renovation, there is a lag time that can last weeks between the template process and countertop install but Blarney came through on a tight timeline for this project. Their ability to get to our project on relatively short order is what kept this project moving forward.
In preparation for the counter template, I ordered this undermount sink and I usually order 90% of the sinks for renovation projects from Overstock. Generally I find some great sinks usually for a better price.
What we’ll tackle this week:
- Install floating shelves either side of range hood
- Install floor transitions
- Complete trim out
- Appliance delivery
