In my absence...

Well since Monday evening I've been doing what I do best- working, eating, helping with the kitchen, and sleeping.

Here's an update on the kitchen progress so far this week:

The focus of the week has been assembling the fridge cover panels and attaching the over the fridge cabinet. This was no easy project, but it really customizes the look of the kitchen.

First up taking the very large, heavy cover panels outside and cutting the down to size by removing approximately 9" from the bottom and 6" from the back. Due to the recent rainy weather this process took two evenings to complete (can't use power tools in the rain).

On Wednesday evening Matt cut braces to separate the two panels to the perfect width to fit the fridge perfectly in between the panels. After installing the panel braces the cabinet was attached to the panels.

After all was assembled on the floors the panels/cabinet were lifted into place on the wall. It was quite the task, but in the end the plan came together and Matt was successful.

After it was all set we installed the fridge. Yeah!!! And just in case you are wondering to the right of the fridge will be the dishwasher- which is currently in the foyer.

So what do you think so far?
