Kitchen Reno Day 5

Things have moved along surprisingly quickly. By the end of the first week Serve and his crew from Vima Design have removed all the old cabinets and fixed the subfloor..this happened on the first day.

By Friday gaps in insulation have been replaced and the gyproc installed. Wiring for the new Microwave as well as the low voltage wiring for the Under Cabinet Lighting, LED of course has been installed. The ceramic tile has been laid and only waits for grout and the walls have been painted. Pretty good for a week I thought.

Kitchen day 5

The custom built cabinets arrive Monday and the new appliances come in on Wednesday so by the end of the week we should be back in the kitchen. We will have a temporary countertop because the quartz guy won’t measure until the the cabinets are installed and it can take up to two weeks for the quartz countertop to be delivered and installed. That will be a huge improvement over our current temporary kitchen in the dining room which limits our meals to what can be cooked on the barbecue or in the microwave.

Temp kitchen

Can’t wait to get rid of the clutter of the entire contents of the kitchen in boxes and remove the tarps and drop cloths from the furniture. They have been really good about sealing up the kitchen when sanding so dust propagation has been minimal.

Reno mess

With luck it should be all finished by the end of the month. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
