It's move-in day today. The first of the new appliances have arrived. New fridge, new washer and dryer, new oven (to be installed next week), and new dishwasher (to be installed on Monday). This is really pretty amazing and unexpected. We went from replacing the dryer to acknowledging that the washer and fridge were 20 years old too so let's replace all three. Then the oven and non-working microwave top got caught in the DH's eagle-eyed radar and the next thing I know we are getting a new oven too. Must say - I'm one happy gal.
OLD OVEN/MICROWAVE COMBO
Anticipating that there would all these new goodies in the kitchen (washer/dryer in the garage), I decided it was time to start painting the cabinets in the kitchen again. Our galley kitchen has been a work in stalled progress for over three years. Now I've gotten the bottom cabinets primed and base coated and the wood case around the oven was finished off this morning (well the bottom part of it anyway).
The open area, where the microwave used to be is going to be left open. I'm going to ask DH to install a couple of pull-out cabinet drawers to allow for movable open shelving. This is, of course, assuming that we can do this with an oven. Delivery and hookup expert explained about insulation so I expect this will not be a problem. Total newbie that I am to this sort of stuff, I worry about and question everything.
Gus, as you can see, was singularly unimpressed
