Lake House Appliances Almost Done

Lake House Appliances Almost Done

Today, the last round of deliveries from Best Buy arrived, along with a bonus delivery from Restoration Hardware. Best Buy installed a wall oven and range on the upstairs kitchen, plus an oven, range, and refrigerator in the downstairs kitchen. There is some final electrical work to be done to wire the upstairs oven and range, but otherwise everything is good to go.

The issue requiring additional electrical work ended up being the bizarre location of the junction boxes for both the oven and range. Instead of being right by the appliances, the junction boxes were in the basement, below the floor. It took a lot of searching, but I eventually found them:

I also had to do some minor cabinetry modification work, but I was able to fit the new range top in while keeping the original range hood and the original range controls, which were built in and tie together the new stainless steel with the old mid century modern style.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll get the electrical work done and then both kitchen remodels (at least for phase 1) will be done!
