It’s Week 4 and we are more than halfway to the finished line. Everyone is excited around here, even the late adopters have finally caught on.
For example, heading home from the airport on Sunday, my son shouted from the back of the truck “Mom! No one worked in the kitchen the entire week while you were gone.”
I found it funny to see how vested he was in completing the kitchen. Then again, it is his favorite room of the house and soon it will be mine, too.
So much planning goes into a project like this and often clients assume that if there’s not a warm body on site–no hammers dropping, no drills drilling, everything is at a stand still.
This couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Last Tuesday, I stood in the San Francisco airport and paid the deposit for my countertops while waiting in baggage claim. The countertops were installed a week later (yesterday) and boy, oh boy, they are lovely. I think it’s important to mention that it usually takes two weeks or more to have your cabinets measured and the tops fabricated. This likely happened so fast due to my amazing relationship with my fabricator. Or perhaps it could be that I was sobbing so loudly he felt sorry for me.
Nevertheless, he and his team came to my rescue.
