Since we are not going anywhere this year we decided to spend our vacation money on some home upgrades. Back in May we had a new furnace and hot water tank installed.
This week we are having the kitchen cabinets and counter replaced and have bought a new stove. The reno started today and I'm hoping it doesn't take too long. You don't realize just how much you do in the kitchen until you no longer have one. We are washing dishes in the bathroom sink for God's sake. The fridge is in the dining room beside the dishwasher. The plumber's bill will be considerably less that we had anticipated as he wants to take all of our old cupboards to put in his basement. The electrician is due shortly and the cabinet maker will be coming at noon to remove the old cupboards and counter. Everything is dovetailing nicely so far.
