Special Delivery

Last Saturday we had a giant delivery to our home...our cabinets for the basement!  The final push is coming to get this thing finished.  It only took three years, but the next few weeks is going to be a flurry of activity as we install these!

By 7:15am we had a phone call that the truck would be arriving in an hour.  By 8:45 unloading began.

Two guys unloaded all this.  Ugh.  It probably took them 45 minutes to get everything into the basement.  Luckily it was a beautiful day out.  Still...a lot of work.  These guys were sweating buckets by the time they were finished going up and down those stairs and hauling these solid cabinets!

The kids and I mostly stayed out of the way.  Sadie barked from her kennel for the entire time.  ENTIRE time.  Mike stayed downstairs checking off the boxes as they came in to make sure everything had been delivered.

Saturday night Mike started researching how to install cabinets.  Sunday night we started opening the boxes to make sure the cabinets were in good shape.  That took a few nights.

Sunday night Mike also got all the level lines drawn out with his new laser level after discovering the other two he had didn't work.  I'm sure it won't be the only tool we'll "have to buy" in order to install these.

You'll have to wait for pictures of the actual cabinets.  I didn't get around to taking those yet.  We've been kinda busy just opening boxes.

In a related note - we may have a few boxes if anyone is interested.  Maddie and Jake have already claimed  some for play, but I'm sure we'll have more than a couple to send to a good home!
