What’s the update on the Maui Kamaole remodel?

As you may remember, we are working on our Maui Kamaole remodel. We bought this condo in October 2010 and did some work during the summer of 2011. At the time we had stripped the old popcorn ceiling, expanded and re-tiled the lanais, installed a split-system A/C, replaced all doors and trim, bought new mattresses, replaced the master bath tub and re-tiled.

This summer we had another agenda – the kitchen and bathroom cabinets have been pulled out and are being replaced. We also took out the storage room wall and expanded the main bathroom. It used to be tight and cramped, now we have a giant walk-in shower.

How is the remodel going? Great! Our contractor Armando tells us we are on schedule to finish September 19th. The new cabinets, quartz counter tops and sinks are installed. The main bathroom is tiled (waiting for grout).

We’ve been shopping this week. We bought:

  • a new stainless steel fridge and dishwasher
  • a new bedroom suite
  • new dishes, glass ware and some additional cutlery (some pieces had gone missing).

The post-construction clean has been scheduled for September 23rd. Sig and I will spend a lot of time setting things up, organizing and buying last minute items (like a few new area rugs). I have to talk with Dave about shampooing the living room furniture and cleaning the blinds. And then of course I’ll have to schedule Steve to take new pictures for the website. I can’t wait! It’ll be great and ready for our first guests end of September!
