Our busy weekend started with another consultation appointment at the decor centre on Saturday morning. Our last consultant was transfered to their condo decor unit, and a new rep took over this past Thursday. It turned out that she’s much more helpful and straight to the point. The following cabinet unit is being built as a sample at the decor centre, and is exactly the same as the stain and the style we chose. That helps us visualize the cabinet panel we picked in a room.
We were asked to provide specifications and dimensions of our new appliances for the builder to custom build slide-in range opening, microwave and oven shelf. We need to have them by early October for our final decor centre appointment. So after the meeting we decided to go to the Lowe’s to check what our options are, and we were pleasantly surprised by how close Lowe’s and a big shopping mall under construction are — it only took us 2 minutes from our new house site! Similar home renovation stores (e.g. Home Depot), major retailers and grocery stores are about 5-8 minutes drive from our current house, and we thought that was convenient!
On our way to our lunch party, we drove by our new house site again, and this time we noticed our road sign (Coral Acres is our street) is up! It looks like our builder is finally ready to break the ground in October.
