I posted up more pictures of our cabinets and flooring in the gallery….. the below is also a pic from the flooring website, plus some guessing on my part, on how our kitchen may look (with our darker countertops and our flooring, and the stainless steel appliances of course).

Permit Application

Friday, December 14th, 2007

3 days ago (12/10), our permit was applied for…. we should expect it back in approx. 3 weeks.

Yes, this is painful!!!!! lol. With that in mind, on a normal calendar, we should get it on New Years Eve 12/31/07. However… I wouldn’t be surprised if a few days got bumped due to the holiday.

They were though, early, in providing our drafts, so fingers are crossed!

With that in mind, we should expect to break ground about the 2nd week of January.. hopefully by Monday 1/14/08! Fingers crossed for a good REST of the winter! (What we’ve had so far does NOT COUNT!)

Later on when you are shopping for items for the new house, you can see examples of the exact color combo’s you need to match up.
