So I should be writing our “punch list” for the house tonight but I just don’t have it in me. I do have two Bud Light Limes in me so all is not set adrift. In about 10 minutes I’m going to sit my lazy ass down in the comfy chair, finish my beer and have some twelve-year-old kid halfway across the country shoot me in the back of the head via my Xbox. Freedom, sweet freedom.
Seriously though, I can cut the list and drop it off in the morning on my way to work. I’m going to go on vacation for a few days to recharge from all this house stuff. We can actually close remotely, so I’ll just monitor the last steps from afar. Before I leave though, I will stop by tomorrow to see pretty much what turned out to be the figurative crown jewel of the joint. Tonight is countertop eve. Only a matter of hours until our quartz counters go in, which should finish off the kitchen. Although I need to prod my brother to install all the door fronts.
I think I’ll be in love with our kitchen. Tomorrow will determine the degree of that love, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to look a lot like my rendering, and more importantly my mind’s eye…in fact it may be the one thing in the house that exceeds my expectations all around. The world needs our kitchen. I honestly believe the world is a little better off after tomorrow than it was before today because that kitchen exists….. or at least that’s the hope right.
No it’s not earth shattering or even that overly unique. Hell we filched it from a coffee table magazine. But we did make it our own. It has style, craftsmanship, and enough unique qualities to certify it as a needful thing this side of the earth’s crust.
Alright, I’m done. I’ll show you pics tomorrow. Thursday wins. Thursday is good. Only thing left to do is go battle Friday. And possibly have a beer in the new kitchen.
