Well … another week, and a lot more progress. As you may recall when the new floor was installed, all of the baseboards had to come off, including the custom woodwork Harold did in our entryway. The plans was that the installers would remove those pieces of base, and we’d reinstall them later. Apparently not all of the installation crew was aware of this plan. Every last inch was thrown out, never to be seen again.
This week, Harold milled all new baseboards and trim. It’s all installed now as well as new baseboards in the family room.
The hardware is installed …
and … in just 9.5 hours, the countertops arrive. So excited. Thanks Block Tops for working on a holiday.
Then everything will start to move quickly with the electrician arriving on Tuesday and pthe lumber on Wednesday to do their final installs. That leaves Thursday for installation of the backsplash …
(What do you think of this for the backsplash? It a combination of glass and slate. Apparently I need to calibrate my color because what looks green here is really smoke and what looks pink is a beautiful sandy color.)
… with a housecleaning service scheduled to be here bright and early on Fri.
Which reminds me … I need to call to have the area rugs returned. Can’t wait to see how they turned out.
