Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of our moving in to this place.
While this house wasn't the one we really wanted at the time we bought it (our first choice sold to another buyer), it turns out to be a better house for us in a better location. 10 minutes to work for both of us, a nice 1/2 acre yard in a quiet subdivision, and close enough to "civilization".
To mark the anniversary, I plan to go out today and buy the rest of the cabinets needed for 1/2 of the kitchen.
Since I'm going to do the cabinets and flooring in two stages, I might as well buy material in that manner too. This will also allow me to figure out all the little details so I know what to expect for the other half of the cabinet work, as the second stage will be larger and more involved.
I budgeted $3,000.00 for upper and lower cabinets, and it looks like I might hit that number dead-on.
