The Counters are COM-ing

The counter guys arrive Wednesday to start removing the tile and the old counter tops. We will be without a sink for a few days starting Wednesday. My new appliances are in the house. Stove is in middle of floor...plugged in. Told the hubby that it can't work real well since it is in middle of floor so we need to eat out at least once a day. I think he knows I'm full of it"...but he did take me out to eat today.

Once counters are removed...template guy comes in and makes the template pattern...then the quartz is cut...while that is being done...Backsplash tile guy comes in and removes the backsplash...which is stuck on the wall and then will put up new board and then tile....The counter folks return and install counters..Tile man returns and starts tiling backsplash...with those "million dollar" glass tiles I picked out. Of course the tiles I chose cost an arm and leg per square foot, and tile man said they are labor intense to install...so am spending a small fortune on just little chunks of tiles. But hopefully it will be worth it.

As far as my new appliances go...they each came with a manual about a 1/2 inch thick. The only manual I didn't have to study was the refrig. The stove wakes up when touched and then goes back to sleep if not used. I think my hubby just enjoys watching it come alive as he touches it everytime he passes it. I shouldn't talk I sat in front of my new front loading washer the first time I used it and watched it like it was a soap opera...my old fashion washer clunker seems medieval now.

It will be great to get a really new kitchen....will post photos later.
