Kitchen Renovation – small big things

In the past week, the countertops were put in:


They are engineered quartz (Caesarstone brand) and are a huge improvement over the old laminated counters, if I do say so myself.

A few days later, the backsplash (subway tile) was installed:


The prep sink is now fully functional, and the main sink is mostly hooked up – we’re in the home stretch now. Our contractor tells us that we should have a functional kitchen by the end of today – inspections are the end of next week.

Kitchen Renovation, And Then…

Well as mentioned, the tile was installed in the past couple of weeks:


And the counter top templates were finished, but due to some FURTHER miscommunication, there was a delay before the fabrication could begin of another week and a half. The good news is that we have an install date for the counter tops now, of 11/10, and after that the backsplash tiling, and appliance hookup can happen. There are still a few other details to be done too, but the counters are really the long pole here.
