We have now moved into phase 2 this week. Chad, your last look at the yellow countertops! Accomplishments this week were:
- electrical wire for the oven and tv wire run
- bottom cabinets, stove and sink torn out
- new oven installed
- bottom cabinets stained and set in the kitchen (not mounted, yet)
- countertops chosen
It did take two more trips to Dallas to find the countertops. I took off a half a day of work to go look. Diana went with me. After making my selection, I got home only to find out that the size of granite I chose is not big enough for my kitchen. So Rick and I went back on Saturday. We did make another selection. Rick asked another couple if this was normal in the process. They assured him that it was very normal; they had been to seven slab yards that day. Rick and I only went to four in the last eight days; we just went to one of them three times. Each time we chose something different than the time before.
