Amite house construction

03.04.15 Part Two – The cabinets arrived a day early, porch railings and microwave!

z2High temperatures here in Amite on Thursdays was 81.  High temperature on Friday will be in the low 40s.  Wish it would level off somewhere in between for a while!

Wednesday, March 4, 2015 – We were having a hard time getting the cabinet/counter top folks to commit to Thursday for delivery and installation.  They surprised us by bringing the cabinets on Wednesday.  That was a BIG surprise and the electrician was just finishing up so we scrambled to clean up and get the space ready for the kitchen cabinets and the two bathroom cabinets to go in.  The electricians and cabinet men finished their work Wednesday evening and these pictures are from then. The cabinet men did not have the crown molding for top of cabinets so the counter top men will bring that Thursday.
