I forgot to get pictures after Mondays work, but on Thursday the counter guys installed the granite. I love the new counters!
We discovered that the "broken" microwave does indeed work. The previous owners told us it was broken, but it was never plugged in! How and why they didn't discover this in the 15 years they lived here, I'll never know. Then again, they put up with a broken, leaking kitchen faucet for long enough to cause water damage below the cabinet. Also they never updated the early model "low flush" toilets that just don't work. Those were two of my first projects upon moving into the house.
The kitchen table is a mess, but it will probably be that way until the work is done.
