The countertop and fronts

After a week of fine tuning the plastered walls in the living room finally the phone call came in that the countertop was ready. Two people from Granimar came to deliver and install the countertop. It looked great and fitted like a glove. They had it installed in less then half an hour.

During the weekend we spend painting the living room walls and installing a few more fronts in the kitchen.

Because of the radiator the drawers under the ovens would not be able to open, so I changed the bigger drawer front for a door front and since there are not door fronts as narrow as a drawer, I bought a drill to create a hole for the hinges. When it was done it looked as if it was designed this way. Excited the kitchen really starts to get done.

Preparing the stove

At work in the marketplace channel someone offered two glass tables which fit nicely with the sofa and chairs I inherited from my grandparents, after I picket them up I was happy to see this was very true, only the type of would is different, so they are a bit lighter, but the design is very fitting.

During the weekend I fixed up the tile stove and made a cove around the brick chimney, to make it a bit more attractive. This sure made a good difference.

Measuring and plastering

Now the cabinets have gotten their final place the countertop can be measured. The guy from Granimar came with er very nice tool to do the measurements. It is a box with a pen on a wire. Because of the wire it knows how far away from the box the pen is and because of the pressure from the wire it also knows the direction relative to the box. Apart from that there is a touch screen with some CAD software and in no-time the design was made. It should take 1-2 weeks to be ready.

During the week we have visited Ikea to pick up some new kitchen parts and double check some stuff in the showroom. We also found a nice mirror for the bathroom, which is part of our temporary kitchen.

On Sunday put a thin layer of plaster on the walls in the living room to make sure the surface has the same structure as we decided not to put fiber glass wall paper on the walls here. As there was the first Formula 1 race in Zandvoort this century on, I connected my laptop to a TV screen so I could follow it while working.
