The darkest hour may be just before dawn, but in the case of a kitchen remodeling job the darkest hour has to be just before your torn-apart kitchen starts to be put back together again.
For me that darkest hour was last Sunday, that is, a week ago today, when, after having gone through the first week of demolition, electrical reconfiguration, and reconstructive drywalling, my kitchen looked like this:
However the next day, Monday, the cabinets arrived, and piece by piece,
And so Tuesday evening Tom and I ventured out to Lowes,
By Thursday afternoon our sink and dishwasher were gone and all the cabinets were in place and wrapped up, ready for the drywallers who would arrive the next day to put the finishing touches on the walls and ceiling.
And I thought, And a few days ago there were thousands of Haitians huddling under a bridge outside of Texas who would do anything for a job cutting, loading, and delivering materials to customers. Companies need workers. Refugees need work. Is this rocket science?
Anyway, there will be no further work done on our kitchen until October 7 when the counter tops are scheduled to arrive, and the next day the new sink will, hopefully, be installed.
Until then my house will remain a quiet mess and my sinkless kitchen will stay under wraps.
