Sometimes things just come to a standstill. Something needs to be done but it can’t until something else is done first. That thing can’t be done because it is dependent on something else being completed.
That is where we stand with our kitchen today. We can’t get the backsplash put up until the counter top is installed. The counter top can’t be measured until all of the base cabinets are in place. All of the base cabinets are in place except one. The wrong size was ordered and delivered.
In a way I guess we had something to do with that. You see, at the last minute when we talked with our designer for the last time before signing all of the papers we decided to go with angled corner cabinets like what we had instead of a 90 degree angle that she had planned.
It was no big deal. It did mean a few alterations in the design because the 45 degree angled cabinets are a bit bigger. That meant that some of the other cabinet sized had to be adjusted. Apparently all corrections were made except for one cabinet. The one that was ordered and sent is too big for the space designated for it.
Our contractor contacted the store and the correct size cabinet was ordered. However, it will take three to four weeks for that replacement to get here so that means our contractor can’t finish the flooring until the cabinet is in place. We cant have the people come to measure for the counter top because all cabinets need to be in place for a accurate measurement. The backsplash can’t be put up until the counter top is installed.
There are still the lights to be installed and ceiling cracks to be fixed but that is a one to two day job.
So, as for now our kitchen remodel is on hold.
