Granite baby!

The granite got installed yesterday and it’s so nice to have counter space again!! The end is getting very near.

As you can see, our awesome kitchen designer had the great idea of putting a countertop above the radiator. The height of that counter is 30″ instead of the standard 36″ but I have no doubt that it will be extremely useful. I think that one piece of granite doubles our granite square footage and I can’t thank our designer enough for that genius idea.

And look – the first thing we needed to find a home for was my KitchenAid mixer. It looks so great in it’s new permanent home!

I know it looks weird that we still have that subway tiling with the leftover liquid nails. Have no fear, we are putting up a different backsplash that will cover the ugliness. We’re hoping to get that finished up this weekend.

AND, the most exciting part of this week comes today when the plumber hooks up our appliances!! We’re having a celebratory dinner at home since we’ll be able to cook for ourselves for the first time in 6 weeks!!

    Wow, I can’t wait to see the completion! It’s also very smart that you made freezer meals…that really does save money and time! I hated when we reno our kitchen, we had to eat out for weeks…it got quite annoying to pick something up for dinner. We spent more money eating out vs. eating at home! Good luck with your kitchen reno, I bet it will be fantastic!

    Wow, I can’t believe the magic you created in that small kitchen, I am so excited for you. I can relate, my kitchen is smaller, but thankfully we are house hunting and kitchen is big on the priority list.

    Great job preparing! That baby is packed!

    I haven’t seen a radiator in forever! 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the new kitchen.

    That is pretty impressive all those yummies that you’ve created with a limited amount of space.
