This is how it was left when Carey went back to work a week ago.
Carey and Jared back at it yesterday morning.
The last upper cabinet coming down.
Clean slate...or rather it will be when the horrid slate backsplash comes down...which is proving difficult. The plumber was here yesterday and did some necessary work. The electrician will be here tomorrow to give it a look, then will come back to do the work on another day soon. THEN we can schedule the cabinet installation (they were delivered this week, and are waiting in the garage).
Now I have to choose a countertop material. Today I narrowed it down to these two. One of the above is laminate, and one is granite...can you guess which is which? I really thought I wanted laminate, because: it can look very similar; we have never been hard on countertops as far as burns, scratches, etc.; it's less expensive; and just seems less...snobby? But after looking at the edge options today, I didn't like any of the laminate edge choices. Also, I would really like an undermount sink, and those are not really suited to be paired with laminate countertops. So I'm going to think about it for a few days. Any thoughts or advice?
