Okay. Here we go.
John Lewis (an employee-owned department-store extraordinaire, for non-Brit readers) is redoing our kitchen *in one week*. We approved the design 6 weeks ago; we have paid all the costs; we met with the kitchen installer (David Cook) last week; we have today emptied out the old kitchen and made the flat as dust-resistant as we can.
David Cook and his guys arrive tomorrow--Monday morning. Will they be finished by Friday? Follow 'em here!
Finished means: everything except lights, painting, tiles, and floor. In essence, a working kitchen.
Fingers crossed . . . . here we go.
Here's the vintage-1974 kitchen, in all its glory:
Here's the kitchen from the hallway.
