It’s Friday. We were scheduled to meet with 2 electricians and Traditional Cabinetry this morning at 8am. We were there with bells on. Greg Burke (the high voltage electrician) was there too. He started us walking from room to room and actually deciding where each plug and each light fixture went. He was FANTASTIC - he made us feel like the house was already ours and encouraged us to make sure that it was the way we wanted it to be. We skipped the kitchen because we still didn’t know where the cabinetry was going exactly.

By the time we made it 1/2 way through the house, the low voltage electricians showed up - the people Bill really wanted to get organized with so that his CAT5???? wiring was the way he wanted it for all of the computers, stereo, telephone and security systems… his thing for sure!

So I plugged away (ha, get it, plugged) with Greg to figure out where all the pot lights would go. What a shock to find out that the 36 pot lights we planned to purchase couldn’t be $8.99 - noooooooooo, they are $50 each installed :( HACK - FURBALL! (ok so there aren’t quite 36 any more!)

Meanwhile Bill ‘got educated’ too… each of the 22 network and phone drops is going to be about the same price as a pot light - roll over and play dead!

As I am just finishing up with Greg, the “other Greg” (Greg Walker) shows up to go over the kitchen cabinetry with us. Long story short, given the kitchen layout and the patio door location, we needed to choose between the eating bar and the island. The eating bar won so we’ll have a nice open kitchen :) But what are the dimensions of your stove and range hood?? Ummmm???

Ok, so by then it was nearly 1pm and we figured we weren’t going to make it to work for long anyway, so we decided to go appliance shopping. We knew we were looking for black appliance, and we knew what fridge and dishwasher we liked, now we just needed to know what stove… the pictures of our choices are below (except in black).
