Got back into town late yesterday and went back to work assembling the cabinets. By mid-day today, in have all assembled with the exception of the one over the fridge, and a large one for the den. Few of the doors and none of the drawers are installed, but I really wanted to get the boxes together and make sure we weren't missing anything. So far all the cabinets are here. Next will be to make sure all the drawers and doors are included as well. As well as things have gone so far, I don't doubt it will all be there.
A new range hood arrived today. That was fantastic service. Saw the hood was damaged a little over a week ago. Called and they picked up on Thursday, and I have a new today. Opened it immediately and it is in great shape.
Brother-in-law Howard is coming up from Austin on Thursday night to help me put up all the cabinets. He's here until the following Wednesday, so we should be able to get everything done.
Oh big news! The engineer was by today and looked at the fireplaces. He took some pictures, some measurements and poked around. He seemed to think it all looked good as far as the closure of the fliers concerned. He wants to review the fire code before he signs off, though. Said he should have something back to us tomorrow end of day. Crossing my fingers! If that's OK, then I'll call for an inspection. He did find a loose brick that I need to tuck point with some heat resistant mortar, but that's a piece of cake.
Really really hoping he signs off.
