The cabinets cannot be ordered until the installer does a site visit to confirm (measure) that the plan that we have will indeed fit into the space that we have. This will be next Wednesday or Thursday. I'm resisting the urge to feel anxious that we are working in a deficit when it comes to the kitchen. I want to be in the home before the end of October and I predict that it will be the kitchen cabinets/flooring/counter tops that prevent us from moving in.
On a much happier note - I found this deal last night at Lowe's. It was already in clearance as a floor model sale and I was able to negotiate another $200 off the 'clearance' price. They will hold it in the back until we close. I'll store it in the den until the kitchen is finished and ready for it to be installed.
I'm looking forward to using this appliance :)
Yes! That is 2 ovens....the smaller one will hold all my casserole dishes, the lasagna pan, pizzas, cookie sheets. Not all at once, mind you; but individually. The upper oven has 4 racks that are all adjustable. I
think, suspect, know, believe I'm getting excited.
I had to opt for all electric because we discovered yesterday (after speaking with the gas company) that the natural gas line to the house had been killed when the developer went in and made the road to subdivide. We'd have to pay $500+ for the new tie in. There is no natural gas to the subdivision. This means that we have to remove the really nice gas logs in the den fireplace and burn wood there. We could bury a propane tank in the yard and use that but we don't want to spend the money to install or furnish it. Like B says - its just another small thing in the whole scheme of things.....but its not a deal breaker. If I'm tempted to be irritated or upset with the fact that we have no natural gas supply - I'll just go sit in the kitchen and stare at my new and spacious cabinets and all my appliances :)
