Okay, so two weeks ago I was home alone and decided to bake some cookies for my nephew on a mission. Those that know me, know I don't bake alot anymore, I leave the baking to Courtney. So I mixed the cookies, and turned on the oven, went out of the kitchen and heard a "POPPING" noise. I came into the kitchen and looked in the oven and saw what looked like 4th of July sparklers shooting out of the top of my oven. The top element was on fire. So, long story short, we got all new appliances on Saturday. Little did we know what a project it would be to switch out the OLD and install the NEW. This is attempt #1 of installing the new OVEN. Steve was smart enough to bring in his big car jack to put the oven on to lift it into place. Should just pop it in, no problem right..... WRONG! It took us countless times to get the oven to FIT, not to mention all the adjustments to the back wall. Attempt #4...I think we lost count how many times we had to pull this oven out . We took a lunch break after this....The crew was getting hungry!
Notice that each attempt has a new operator of the JACK. It was actually getting a little bit funny to hear Steve tell us that the fit wasn't good enough, and pull it out again. This definitely was a FAMILY affair! Our couple of hours Saturday project turned into a 6-hour ordeal, but the outcome was worth it! Here is our mini-kitchen MakeOver!
Everything has been switched out to Stainless Steel. Steve has been wanting this since we built the house.
We love the new appliances, but now Steve is threating to pull out the floor.....RUN Leavitts....RUN!
P.S. Jake, I will get you some cookies made and mail them this week.....the crew ate the ones I made and put in the freezer...they found them on the Fridge switch.
