New kitchen - Days 12 - 14

Early on Monday morning (07.30) the fitters arived to start the fit-out. Every unit had already been built, apart from one corner unit that was too bulky to fit through the conservatory door.

By the end of the day, further units had been added, along with down-lighters underneath the wall units.

Today, all the units, and most doors and drawers,  were installed,

as were the electric oven, warming drawer

and dishwasher,

End panels were added, and top and bottom plinths.

Tomorrow, the electricians return. We should have a working dishwasher, oven, warming drawer, power sockets and lights by the end of the day. The gas hob will not be fitted until the corian work surface is installed, sometime next week. We then have a further wait for the glass splash-backs to be made and fitted.

We also need to re-think our fridge/freezer, which is much wider and deeper than the space available beside the oven housing.
