A different paint crew has come in to sand, prime and paint the cabinet boxes in place. The doors and drawer fronts are at the paint shop and will take a little longer to get back.
I am really looking forward to putting everything away in the new cupboards though. It will be nice to cook a meal without having to go on a hunt through a room full of boxes.
We have been able to function pretty well in our half-finished kitchen. We cut our laminate countertops into three pieces and knocked off the front edge (that would have stuck down in front of our drawers) and just set them back on the counter. We hooked the old sink back up temporarily and got the dishwasher and range going as well. That’s pretty luxurious compared to some kitchen renovations where people find themselves doing dishes in the bathroom for weeks.
