We've been taking a nap of sorts here at Kingswood Redux over the past couple of months.
You might recall that I dreaded getting some quotes on having custom kitchen cabinet doors built to use with our existing cabinet frames. I thought it would be a good way to make use of what are solidly-constructed frame units (even though they do not have the versalitility of modern cabinents). Well, I finally got around to calling a few guys -- some weren't even interested, but I did get two guys to come out and take a look. They both seemed excited and had good experience and I was excited about getting some ballparks from them...but the quotes never came back. I followed up with them for a little over a month, but nothing. I guess they're busy...or something.
By the time I finally gave up on the follow-ups, I realized the kitchen remodel was not going to happen before our first child was born. So I switched gears to focus on the nursery and getting myself and my wife prepared for the birth of our little guy.
That all went down really well and our son was born on September 3. I suspect the next post will be a feature on the nursery and might even feature an appearence or two from the little man. Meanwhile, the haze of the first two weeks of his life is beginning to lift and we're thinking about going the Ikea kitchen route, maybe sometime this winter -- whenever we feel like we have a handle on our new life with him!
