The Build Process - Part 9

The new kitchen and laundry arrives!

The kitchen and laundry carcasses are installed so that the tiler can tile around them.

Once the tiles are installed, the kitchen installers returned and put the drawers and cupboards in place.

Unfortunately the kitchen bench turns into another saga of events which meant we moved into the house with temporary laminate benches.  To cut a long story short, the kitchen composite stone for the benches was damaged in transportation so new stone had to be sourced.  They then got held up by the snow in Auckland and finally went to Christchurch instead of Nelson.  Another truck had to be organised to bring it to Nelson for installation.  So approxiately 4 weeks after we moved into the house the benchtops arrived.

...and as you can see they are nice and shiny.  It is an awesome kitchen to work in!  So much space yippy!
