The kitchen took another big step forward yesterday with the installation of the granite work surfaces. Taps, hob-fitting, flooring and painting still to go…
The kitchen project has reached the end of phase one. Everything that can be done prior to the fitting of the granite worktops is done. Oven and fridge/freezer are operational. Next step is tiling in the utility room and fitting of the granite, which takes place later in the week.
Today’s progress has all been at the other end of the kitchen, hence the shift in camera viewpoint. We now have the new fridge installed and the utility room has been transformed.
Things are definitely moving along on the kitchen front, partly because I missed a day in my photo journal. This was because I was out till late eating and drinking with the team from BA Holidays and guests from the travel industry. An enjoyable evening was had by all, although this morning I rather wished I had headed for bed a little earlier!
The holes in the wall are now gone and as a bonus we now have an interesting ‘two tone’ look. No workers here tomorrow, so next update will be Monday when the fitout begins.
Our long overdue project to update the kitchen is now finally underway. I’ve decided to keep a photo diary of progress, so here is the status at the end of day one. As you can see, things get worse before they get better!
We spent the half term holidays in the States experiencing all that is best about the american lifestyle. We stayed first with friends in Pennsylvania and then with friends in Massachusetts. Highlights included glorious fall foliage, wonderful (huge!) houses and Halloween with pumpkin carving and trick or treating. Shame we couldn’t stay another couple of days and experience the finale to the US election.
