WELL the kitchen place has sent alot of wrong stuff so they have fitted all they can for now. On monday they measure up for granite work tops. and hopefully following date it gets painted. But i go away soon . So this kitchen could drag on until the autumn . They started it in mid june .

Hey ho i aint going through this again

I am betting the kitchen WILL be worth it! My kitchen took over 6 months (longer for some small things) but WELL worth it. Keep your eyes focused on the light at the end of the tunnel!

Problems that were out of our control, mismeasurements, personal conflicts, schedule conflicts, just stupid things ya know. The absolute worse time (no kitchen sink or appliances) was not that bad, only a week or a little over - I did alot of preparing for that (set up the powder bath as a makeshift kitchen sink -no one goes potty in there during that week!), microwave in dining room - but in the end - it will all be worth it! I love LOVE my kitchen now, not just for what it looks like but for how functional it is! Hang in there!
