We’re ready!!

I was hoping to be able to post about our new refrigerator today but the delivery date was changed from yesterday to tomorrow so it is not here yet.  But the good news is that we are ready.

Besides installing the big new door, we had to also cut down the cabinet which ran alongside the refrigerator – which was the reason we had to go with a 33 inch wide model originally.  We needed about four more inches than we had so Chip set to cutting down the cabinet by about, oh, four inches.  🙂

Here is what we started with.

And then he started cutting.

and ripping

and rebuilding

and re-insulating the newly exposed gaps in the wall (sigh)

and now we have a slimmer but still usable cupboard with a little extra trim, but you won’t see that behind the refrigerator.

Good job honey!!  I thought we would have to take out the entire cupboard but Chip saved the day – and the cupboard.  🙂

Today’s bonus pic is a picture of a double rainbow above Chip’s shop in the backyard.  Chip took the picture after a January thunderstorm we had here over the weekend.  Kinda awesome.

Just in case we didn’t know our family holds the pot of gold – at least in terms of my golden boys.  (grin)

So now we are all ready – we just need for the refrigerator to arrive.  Chip managed to get all of the prep work done well in advance of the arrival – which is a really really good thing.  Now lets hope we got it right and it all goes smoothly when it arrives.  Fingers crossed.

Onward and Upward.
