Plumber Bob told us we needed a new kitchen faucet.
Yep, we could see the time had come.
So if we’re going to get a new faucet, we probably needed a new sink.
And if we’re going to get a new sink, maybe it’s time to put in a new counter.
The family cook said, “How ’bout a new manly stove?”
Off we went to Precision Countertops. So many options!
We settled on a quartz counter and a deep farm sink of granite composite the color of coffee (might as well start out with the color it will become anyway). Our choices would mean quite a bit of work for Plumber Bob, who could actually make sense of this jumbled mess.
The tearout (demo) created a bit of confusion when it came time to make breakfast.
Plumber Bob, with Justin, his partner in crime, knew what to put where for the install a day later.
Ta-da! A snazzy new faucet, a new sink, new power disposal, new insta-hot to match the new faucet,
a new counter with soft curvy edges,
a new manly stove—nope, just new manly replacement parts. Turns out the new Jenn-airs aren’t any better than the one we added 21 years ago; they only cost more.
All set for the next 21 years or until Plumber Bob sets off another snowball.
Merry Christmas to us! Makes shopping a lot easier for both of us when we plan a spendy home-improvement project so near the holidays.
