A New Kitchen

After being in our home for a little over 3 years now we are finally getting around to redoing our kitchen. This was something that we planned on doing right away after moving in, however... well, I guess time sort of got away.

We are not completely tearing out the whole thing and starting over, just a few things to bring it a little up to date. We are replacing all our appliances with stainless steel and tearing out the nasty tile counter tops and upgrading with granite.

I met with the counter top guy today. He was really shocked at the amount of counter top space we have. Our kitchen is huge, to say the least. He ended up measuring out over 113 square feet. That is a lot and that also means a LOT of $$$.

In addition to the appliances and counter tops we are also replacing both sinks (one is a veggie sink in the island) and fixtures. Yea!

Now that the time is finally here I am SO anxious to have it all completed. It just seems like it can not happen fast enough. But, I am going to have to be patient as the guy told me today that the whole process will, ideally, take about 3-4 weeks and on top of that they are scheduling 4-5 weeks out for installation. Bummer! That takes it to mid September. Oh well.

Our next step is going to the showroom to pick out the slab of granite that we want. We will be doing that tomorrow. Very exciting!
