Met with the second contractor last night and will go with him. He's nice and down to earth. Now, the work begins. We have the month of July to pick out and order all the stuff. Then work will begin about 15 August and go on for a month. We've decided on GE Monogram appliances, I think, and a blue/white color scheme with white bead board cabinets. The bead board will tie the kitchen in with the stairs and the fireplace. Crazy times in Rockwall!
