Well, the countertops are in, and we're really happy with them. It's difficult to visualize how a particular shade of granite will look in your kitchen. Will it go with the cabinets, the floor, the wall color? When thinking of various colors, we weren't sure whether a lighter, beige color would look good, or if a darker color would be better. As we looked at the samples, though, it was very clear we preferred the dark color over the light. I don't have any photos yet that adequately show the pattern of the granite, but at least the photos below can give you an idea of what they look like. We're still waiting on the refrigerator and the microwave, which will be delivered on Wednesday, and then we can get the dishwasher and microwave installed. Then we'll be ready to move things in and start using our kitchen!

More progress...

This will have to be short and sweet. It has been an extremely busy time at work for me, so I haven't had time to post anything lately. But here are some photos to show what has been going on around here.

First of all, the cabinets are all in! And our new floor was installed a couple weeks ago. We are currently finishing up the painting that needed to be done. Our countertops will be installed on Tuesday. The new stove is sitting in our living room, and our dishwasher should be delivered by Friday.

Be sure to note the old floor in these photos.

Here are some shots of the new floor:

And a few random photos, showing the new soffits above the wall cabinets and the finished pass-through hole!

Aside from getting the painting finished (we still need to paint the ceiling), the next project is putting all the pulls on the cabinet doors and drawers. I'll post again soon, once our new countertops are in.
