Kitchen Remodel, Day 3 Photos

Progress on a couple of fronts today, although the photos look much the same as yesterday. The electrician came by today to install GFI outlets and switches into the kitchen. Our house was originally built in 1980 and so it didn’t have GFI in the kitchen, but now it does! Tomorrow, the tile guys are supposed to be back to continue work on the kitchen floor.

In addition to that stuff, we selected the hardware for the cabinets today, and Kelly went to the shop to pick out the paint color. Actually, she narrowed it down to two possibilities and our contractor will put samples on the wall so that we can decide which looks best with the cabinets, countertops, backsplash and floors.
