Week 2 is well underway in our kitchen remodel of our Herndon home. Things are going really well but not fast enough for my taste. I am getting pretty tired of TV dinners and pop tarts for breakfast! :)
The hardwood floors are going in now after they had to install a soft, new plywood over our existing old plywood. They are birch, engineered hardwoods. 5 inch, coffee colored. Cabinets and stainless steel Farm Sink are on order.
The electrical has been run and new sub panel is ready to install in the lower level office. Since we are installing 2 ovens, we had to have an additional panel installed for the extra electricity needed to run the ovens.
We were able to find 2 matching ovens, which is a miracle in itself. Electric, convection, single ovens that aren't $2k+ are hard to come by. We were able to find 2 KitchenAid, convection ovens. One was a floor model at HHGregg and the other we found on Craigslist from a seller who sold appliances from stores that closed. So basically floor models that didn't sell when the store closed. We found a pair in our budget! We also found an Electrolux electric cooktop with soft touch and 5 burners on sale as a floor model at HHGregg. We got all of the appliances at below budget. I still want to get a new refrigerator, but the old one will have to do for now as we spent more on the electrical than we thought.
We are learning the in's and out's through this experience. The good, bad and the ugly. Seems there is always something new that needs to be purchased from Home Depot!
Till next time...
