Thanksgiving is Around the Corner

And it’s kind of a hard deadline for us. The family is coming over. People will be IN our kitchen. No one in my family has actually seen the kitchen–has actually been over my house since this even started. So it’s a BIG DEAL. And we really want to be finished. We got some important stuff done this past weekend–it’s AMAZING how different the walls look with door trim and baseboard!–but there’s still a few things on the punch list.

Updated list:

Still Left To Do:

Buy door trim/baseboard, paint, cut and install, touch up nail holes

Paint door trim that wasn’t taken down (and therefore didn’t get painted in the basement)

Install Vent cover

Buy and build new stool from Ikea

Buy, stain and install wooden thresholds and metal thresholds (Finding this is proving challenging due to the width)

Caulk backsplash where caulk has shrunk

Dig out a bad spot on the caulk

Filler panel between fridge and over-fridge cabinet and under cabinets on either side of microwave

Filler pieces cut and installed for under microwave

Adjust doors and drawers so that they are all perfectly level, then install soft close hinges

Electrician out to do finish electricity 

Electrical inspection (Passed!)

Drawer pulls

Figure out configuration of island interior (shelves on one side/drawers on other–depends on how electrical outlet will fit) and install drawers/shelves

Seal backsplash – First coat, second coat

Return unused/unneeded stuff to Ikea (October 7th)

Outside:replace trim/siding and an outlet from door installation
