    Super simple to put together. It’s like a big puzzle. When you contact Swisstrax, you provide them with your measurements and they will give you a 3D printout and calculate all the tiles you need.

    Dirt will fall underneath the tiles and you simply lift the tile up and vacuum it up. The tiles will always look clean because dirt will never accumulate on it.

    I was hesitating at first about the tiles but then I kept researching about them. Obsessed Garage swears by Swisstrax, now I see why. Totally happy so far with it.

    Kitchen appliances were ordered today. Went with all Samsung from Best Buy. They had the microwave in stock so I grabbed that and the rest will be delivered on Saturday. Not sure the kitchen will be ready to install appliances next weekend, so they might just be getting stored in the garage.

    I did the vent clean out today. I need to get it from the outside too since we live in a 3 story (basement) I was only able to grab a little of it

    Did you get the microwave that goes above your oven? We had one but ended up replacing it with a vent from Hausline and buying a countertop microwave. The countertop microwave holds more and the standalone vent works a lot better. I strongly recommend it if you have the countertop space.

    Our kitchen is a smaller galley type that is only 12ft long. Counter space is limited so we really need to keep the overhead microwave. This is the one I got. Home Depot was $349 and Best Buy was only $315.20210102_184738.jpg

    That sounds perfect then. The biggest gripe with ours was that the former owner that built the cabinets didn't leave much room for the microwave and I'd have to duck under it to see any food I was cooking in the back.
    Congrats on the new kitchen equipment - that's got to feel pretty good.

    Thanks! It will feel better when we actually have a functional kitchen. Been 2 months as of yesterday. The tile guy just finished laying tile in there today, but still needs to do the grout.

    Looks good! We're looking to do that soon too. I was gonna do it myself, but think I'm gonna get my buddy to do it. I'd prob rather pay him than mess it up

    Thanks, wasn't to bad have about $300 tied up in the material but it's on a dedicated circuit with 3 separate switches (front, sides, and back).

    Definitely don't want to mess up when your dealing with Electricity.

    You guys are making great progress..I'm about 5 months in and still not finished. Waiting on my island cabinets and back splash tile to come in.

    This covid had made the remodel a nightmare. It took 2 months to get the windows , 5 months for interior doors , 5 months to get the floor tile. Heck it took 3 months to get a KitchenAid dishwasher.
    And in the summer I couldn't get supplies for a new sprinkler system.

    Friend quoted about 700 for everything I think. We have a switch already dedicated for soffit outlets, but think I may add another switch so I don't overload that one. I'm not too savvy with electrical. Simple things here n there. Otherwise, I'll pay someone to make sure I dont hurt myself or family

    Oh man, and here I thought we had it bad with a 7 week wait for cabinets and a two week delay with the tile guy showing up. Our doors and windows only took about 2-3 weeks to show up. The front door took a bit longer, but everything is here for the most part. We ordered tile that was in stock, so that helped. I'm hopeful that we'll be done before the end of February with everything.

    We will have pretty much updated everything in the house by the end of this year. All bathrooms are the next major undertaking. Will have help with tile.

    We had a similar issue with Microwave height and went with a whirlpool low profile one for over the stove. We haven't had any issue with height of items being reheated. The exhaust fan works surprisingly well since it is slightly deeper than a standard microwave. I didn't know these existed, but ended up seeing a display at lowes.

    I forgot about those. I can't remember why we didn't get one but I want to say we wanted one with the largest space inside that we could get, so we ended up with a big LG. It's pretty cool - it plays little tunes when it's done. Everybody does a little dance.
