The doorbell rang at 8 yesterday morning and in stomped a herd of painters. Within minutes the floors and appliances had been taped off and work on the cabinetry had begun. This work makes the removal of the kitchen backsplash look like child's play. The house is an absolute disaster!
Luckily, this is a good team and work should progress quickly! (I am definitely counting on it). The painters are caulking, filling holes (knotty alder wood), sanding, priming and painting. The door and drawer fronts will be completed off-site, taking two to three weeks to go through a series of priming, sanding and painting. So it will be quite awhile until the kitchen is completely put back together, but I am excited to have this work underway.
