I know… I know… promised you all the kitchen way back on Wednesday, but the appliances didn’t get completely installed until Thursday, and well, I had a little trick up my sleeve for this weekend. We threw the first annual Chasse eat lots of hot dogs and beans family party and what a great way to break in the almost all finished/ready house.
Awesome time, with all our closest peeps!
Couple things that really stuck out from this first shindig… the kitchen/layout is incredible! No problem having 2, 3… 5 chefs in the kitchen. At the old house, throw in more than a person or two next to the stove/countertop and you were bumping into each other, in each other’s way, and not a thing was getting done, at the new place… the more the merrier! Plus there is all that great countertop to set out food! Then there is the whole how many people can you fit… 20 was a breeze! This open floor plan design is perfect for throwing a party… Now I just need the folks to head on out of town for vacation!
Thought I had many more pictures to show you of the good times, but it looks like the picture taker must have been running around with Julie’s camera (looks identical to mine) instead of mine. So you’ll have to wait until she can upload me the pictures.
That’s okay, because I really wanted to show a few pictures of the granite countertop installation and everything that happened between before we had a kitchen and now.
We are ABSOLUTELY in love with the kitchen! Everything about it, from the fine trim work/crown molding around the main kitchen and island, the beautiful granite countertop, to the stainless steel appliances and accents is just simply better than we could have possibly imagined. The granite installers were superb, and somehow managed to fabricate the massive island piece without a seam (everyone from the carpenters to the kitchen people at SW Collins just can’t believe this!). The plumber Perrin Ellis from Easton really came to our rescue and did some fast/great work getting everything ready for this weekend’s party. And of course Mike and Jerry always going that extra step to make sure everything is just perfect!
