This is looking even better than I’d pictured it in my head. The mix of ‘Dove Grey’ lower cabinets with the ‘Chalk White’ upper cabinets is perfect. If it had been totally one or the other colour, I think it would have been too much for that long stretch of wall.
Today things really began to take shape, and I can see how things will looks. The big fridge-freezer is in place, but not connected and the water lines are plugged in yet either. The microwave-combi oven (on top) and the huge single oven (below) are slotted in, but not connected. I am however reading user manuals so that I’m already to play once everything is up and running. That however might take a bit longer than planned. The granite worktop man can’t come out to make a template until Wednesday next week, and it takes about a week after that before it’s fitted. The man who makes the template for the glass walls (back-splash goes on all the wall surfaces will measure up, and then that takes another week after templating. So we’re looking at least another 2 weeks before I can have my kitchen back under my control.
Peter-the-Painter also put two coats of white on the newly plastered living room ceiling, and the new Georgian door is ready to be painted tomorrow. Skirting boards and coving all painted and drying as I write. Those take a bit longer to dry because they are oil-based paint.
Here are a few photos taken after the workmen left this afternoon. And by the way, kitchen-fitter #1 and kitchen-fitter #2 are the most brilliant carpenters that I’ve ever encountered. And that’s a fact!
