Here is the pic. Its a little out of focus.... see the section that connects the lower counter to the upper? UGH, its AWFUL! I know its fixable, but still. Why didn't I see that coming? lol
We did have heat. It was great. There were no chilly spots or hot spots. I guess we have that Energy Star 3.0 certification to thank for that! Our water heater was placed in the closet with HVAC. It really does look like R2D2. (M, I am officially stealing your idea of calling it R2D2, anything else wouldn't seem appropriate!) However, R2D2 is not hooked up just yet.
We had working lights, light switches and electrical outlets! All of our toilets, sinks and other plumbing fixtures were installed. The trinity installer was also there working on our security system and surround sound. He did mention that a jump wire to connect our CO detector was missing. I sure hope they dont have to rip down any drywall to fix that!
All appliances were there with the exception of the dishwasher. Nothing was fully installed yet. I did notice that the stove was not the one we were promised. The one we thought we were getting had a 5th burner on it and the one that was in our house only had 4. It also had less stainless steel finish than the one we were supposed to get. It seems like a pretty substantial downgrade.... Our AWESOME SR Lauren is working the issue, so hopefully it turns out in our favor.
They had to remove the center cabinet to install the vent for our microwave. This is one of the things Adam emailed us to warn us about so we wouldn't have a heart attack when we visited.
Everything is looking great! It wasn't as terribly messy as we had expected which is a nice surprise. There really isn't much left to do. A bunch of little things to do, but as far as big things we are just waiting on all appliance installations, carpet, full installation of the water heater and the washer and dryer. Not much right?
