Here we are topless :). Husband and I took the old laminate out ourselves - so proud of ourselves! Helps that it was pretty easy. Course either of our dads could've had the job done in 1/4 the time. The old sink was wicked heavy, that took us the longest to get out.
And here's the new granite being put in!! (the lighting looks terrible, I was trying to be as out of the way as I could while getting a few shots). The glue smelled so bad. Our house has been a chemical mess for weeks now. No more smelly projects until it's warm enough to open the windows, so in August.
So this is all super exciting, except....they did a terrible job installing and we're having them come back out to fix it. I could post tons of pictures of their mess ups - every slab is crooked, one side will be flush with the wall and the other will be up to a 1/2" off! The worst place is behind the sink. The installers told me that it's cause our wall isn't straight, which didn't surprise me about this house, but after they left we saw that they messed up the angle! One left mark is where they put the corner of the counter and the right mark is the corner of our wall.
They didn't want to have to fix it so they lied! I must have gullible written on my face. A few weeks ago we had our air ducts cleaned and they skimped on that too! Maybe it's cause we're young and people think they can pull the wool over our eyes? Really it just ends up with them having to come back out (which we're a ways off the beaten path) and do it right. Annoying. I have to wait around all day for them to come back, we can't install our plumbing (cooking with no sink and nor able to do dishes - as fun as it sounds) and I can't move back into my kitchen. Them mess in our house is remarkable.
Where are the forks?!? I also took a picture of the laundry pile taking over the hallway, but we've been clothing ourselves from it for so long that it's no longer impressive. Last night Husband and I took a break from projects and did a quick clean to find our sanity. And socks.
