The first post

Well I finally decided to join in. I hope I will have the patience to figure out how to make this work and make it worth while. Today was a good day to start because something so exciting happened today. I did dishes in my dishwasher. What? People do that all the time? Well I haven't since the third week in March. Roger worked his tail off this week and got our bank of base cabinets in, which includes a dishwasher. The remodel has been going relatively smoothly. Without the help of family and friends we would not be to the point we are now. We are so grateful that Grant and Margaret were here for a whole week helping out. He is the master of electric work! Our plan for the week is to see how far we can get with installing the counter top. After the counter top is installed we can put in the sink. I have never been so excited about any single fixture in my life. The sink in question is the Domsjo double sink from Ikea. I love it and convinced Roger of his mad skills... enough that he agreed he could install it in a non-Ikea base cabinet. It will really be like heaven to have a sink, I can't wait! Posted are some pics of what I'm talking about.





This is the before shot of the kitchen. Yikes! Yes yes that is plastic tile ALL over the place.



This is the current state of affairs... with the functioning dishwasher! Roger has done a tremendous job.

I kind of liked the whole, bathtub as your kitchen sink , I mean, less is more, right. . . .you're so high maintenance with the whole kitchen sink thing! ;)
Remember, it's never too late to do the triangle sink like ours, just want you to keep your options open. . .

You know Kelly, if we can't get the beefiness that is the sink to fit, the triangle might be a good option! And what's wrong with me not wanting to feel like I'm going to throw up everytime I did dishes? I know so high maintenance!!!!
