Final Kitchen update: Sink is in, but not fully functional yet. (We went out to eat for lunch and dinner again) Dale installed our temporary counter. We have no dishwasher...BUT we have 4 new appliances on order: microwave, refrigerator, stove and dishwasher. We actually still have our "rolling" dishwasher, but it won't fit in the space for the built-in dishwasher. I went with white appliances and not stainless steel because
(1) It was $500 cheaper;
(2) The stainless steel only comes with black accents that won't go very well with our white cabinets;
(3) It shows fingerprints more than white does;
(4) Dale wanted white.
It's interesting to note that I was really considering the stainless steel because my sister has them and most of the advertisements in magazines feature stainless steel appliances. Anyway, just in case you were like me and had never heard of "french-door" refrigerators, I uploaded a picture for you. The freezer is on the bottom, and the refrigerator has all sorts of cool features. We also purchased the refrigerator "counter depth" which means it will align with our counters instead of "sticking out." Ahh, the luxuries! We actually bought all of these appliances while on our date Saturday night!
