Well that’s funny.

All set to fasten the 30″ inch bottom cabinet to the right side of the stove today.  Leveled nicely front to back and side to side.  Then I was staring at the stove.  Which was exactly the same height as the cabinet.  Hmmm.  Let’s get the soapstone sample.

Wow, that sucker is 1 1/2 inches thick – can we raise the stove?

Yes.  But then the cooktop is practically up to my chin.  And the stove now looks like it is up on stilts.  Hmmm.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah……  We raised the floor.  Like an inch or so.  What to do?

Looks like I’m cutting the toekicks down.  I think it is funny that of ALL the things I’d thought through, I never even saw that one coming.

Feh.  I’ll get to it this week.  Or Labor Day weekend.  I’ll need to sit with it a bit to decide how much to cut off the bottom.  Plenty of other stuff to get to in the meantime.

    Well that’s not a biggie at all. Just two cabinets. And they’re not attached yet. Can’t think of everything, can you Supergirl?

      What is also sort of funny is that at the end of the day, both sides of the kitchen counters will be the same height – one because of us not pulling the cabinets off and the other because of cutting the cabinets down.

      I’m so silly.
