The cabinets arrived yesterday. Woohoo!
The initial excitement of seeing the Kraftmaid 18-wheeler roll up outside was momentarily replaced by a fear that we hadn’t cleared enough temporary storage space for the boxes. Fortunately the truck wasn’t full. But I can’t say the same for our living room after the Kraftmaid guys finished moving box after box through the front door.
So how does a box-filled living room turn into a cabinet-filled kitchen? First, our Home Depot project manager shows up today to inspect the delivery and make sure nothing is missing or damaged. Assuming nothing is awry (knock on wood, er, Thermofoil) the HD installer will start assembling the kitchen next Monday, Dec 3rd.
That should mean completed cabinetry no later than Dec 5th, at which point the countertop process begins. But that’s a whole other story. So for now let’s just concentrate on the small victory of a quick and painless cabinet delivery.
