And still there is no progress on the kitchen. For four straight weeks, our kitchen contractor has not shown his face, but that is supposed to change this week, which is–Yes! You guessed it!–week seventeen. The kitchen counters are scheduled to be installed this week, and that means we should finally have a functioning garbage disposal and a functioning dishwasher. Our contractor said he plans to do some other stuff too, but I’m not holding my breath.
In the meantime, other things have been happening in the way of home improvement. We had our peeling soffit and fascia replaced along with the leaky gutters and downspouts, and also the siding on the dormer. What an improvement! It was a big job that took six days to complete, and it wasn’t cheap, but the house looks so much better, and we shouldn’t have an ice rink this winter from leaking gutters and downspouts.
