The Cabinets


Wednesday, August 22, 2007

It's Like Getting Up From the Table at a Restaurant

The moment you do, boom your food comes.

So I wrote the nasty post about the house and boom shack-a-lacka, we have cabinets and a possession date. Sept 26th, we'll be sleeping in the new house =).

I'll post pictures of the cabinets shortly.

They Are There!

The good news is the cabinets are there!!!! Pictures to follow

Monday, August 13, 2007


So I don't know if anyone actually looks at this blog anymore because it has been abandoned, but I ma going to refer to it from my original blog, so here is my complaining.

So the reason there have been very few updates on the house is because basically NOTHING has happened. We have been waiting for our cabinets ALL SUMMER. In mid June they told us it would be 4-6 weeks before they were delivered, then another 6 weeks to finish up flooring etc. And we would be in the house. That would have been this week. So the cabinet company is at least 6 weeks later then they said they would be. So we call once a week to check with our builder, Cardel, they contact the company and say oh it's coming next Tuesday or on Friday or whatever excuse they come up with at the time. The thing is I don't know if the cabinet company is feeding us a line or the builder.

The big problem is our house now is up for sale. Who knows when we will get an offer, and if we take it, we may have no place to live. (Which is not necessarily true, but I don't really want to move twice)

So when our builder calls us this week we are going to go postal and demand that he do is job and find us a proper date that these cabinets are coming. He needs to talk to the people who are making them, or the people who are shipping them. Go down there himself and look at them, because this is ridiculous.

I'm usually pretty nonchalant about stuff but enough is enough.

Till Next Time, and hopefully a better update.

The House is Up For Sale

Well after a cleaning weekend bonanza here are the pictures for selling the old house. Here's the living room. Notice our designer's lovely mantle and they encouaged us to get lots of plants. Also the TV is on the opposite wall of when you come in.

What use to be the playroom is now the dining room. Notice Darryl's lovely table and chairs. Plus our favorite paintings that were moved to this room.

The den with the huge red chair in it. Which picture do you like better # 1 or ......
# 2........

The main picture of the front of the house. =)

So much hard work. Hopefully it sells quickly.

News and Pics

Good news in regards to the house. The cabinets should be delivered in the next 2-4 weeks. Yipee, another 6 weeks after that and we should be ready to move. Yeahhh!! So we are looking at about August 15th =) Now it's time to get into gear with selling our place now. Here are some pics of the house, which has not changed in two weeks, and probably not for another two weeks.

Here's obviously the front of the house. Yeah for brown, will hide the dirt better then the yellow we have now.

The stairwell with the paint color that will give my parents and Darryl's parents heart attacks. Chocolate brown. =)

The living room with the stone fire place.

This is from the back corner of the lots, which may not seem like a big deal, but if you live in any big city it is. Yeah for a big lot!!!
