House Project: Exterior Painted, Appliances

My builder tells me that the exterior is now painted, and he expects to have the interior ready to start painting in the next day or two--should be ready for carpets, cabinets, and appliances by the end of the week.

My builder didn't order the appliances some weeks back when I gave him my list, but it now turns out that this was a good thing. One of the appliances I specified was a GE downdraft gas cooktop--but it turns out none of the GE downdraft gas cooktops can use LP gas--only natural gas. A few of the GE gas cooktops come with LP gas burners--but none of them have the downdraft feature, which is rather important, since it is a little late to add a range hood and exhaust fan to the kitchen.

I've settled on the Jenn-Air downdraft gas cooktop because it can work with LP gas. All the other appliances are GE: the dishwasher, the wall oven, the microwave, the refrigerator, the trash compactor, and the washer and dryer.

The kitchen appliances are all black. (Stainless steel is just a little fashionable at the moment.) The washer and dryer are white.

Last house project entry.
