Lisa and I met with the owner of Siegler's Custom Kitchens again last night and finalized our plans by selecting our handles and molding for above the cabinets. We hope to have him out to the house by the end of this week to do the official measurements and then we can expect delivery of our cabinets, countertops and sink within 6 weeks.
This of course means that we need to begin the work in the kitchen that needs to be completed before the cabinets arrive. I am hoping to begin tearing up the linoleum flooring this weekend and hope that it isn't as bad as I think it will be. We have those 12 inch linoleum tiles in our kitchem, which makes me think that underneath that is probably an older linoleum sheet (or two ro three). Once we get all of the linoleum removed we will need to replace some of the subfloor as it currently is soft in places. After securing the new subfloor we will need to make sure it is a level surface for the tile that will then need to be laid. However, in order to lay the tile on the new subfloor we will need to remove our current floor cabinets and stove and fridge.
Does this sound like a lot of work to anyone else?
Oh, and did I mention that we also want to remove part of the walls that separate the kitchen from the living room as well?
We are hoping to have the entire kitchen project completed by the end of August, assuming the cabinets arrive before then. I hope to be able to provide photos of our projectas it takes shape...
