Today we began preparing the house for the tear out, which begins in one week. Most of the shopping is done. Today I ordered the Fivestar ranges, tile, RO filters, RO faucets and a water softener. All that is left to purchase are ceiling fans (will get them at Lowes), new windows, a door, table fan, white subway tile, breakfast nook chairs and paint (Shewin Williams Steamed Milk).
While originally I was anti RO because of the waste, Babu really wants clean tap water. However, the big sink already has 3 wall faucets on it and the white sink has one. Add two RO faucets and my kitchen is up to a ridiculous 6 faucets! A little alarming, even for me. I tried to get a skinny, barely there RO faucet and found one that I think fits the bill (mainly that it doesn’t have the black tip). The finish is chrome and gold so it matches nothing in my kitchen, but I think that is okay. Also, when buying the RO filter, I upgraded to a 14 gallon tank. Isn’t that a doozy? The upgrade was cheap and I have a fear of not being able to fill a 5 gallon pot for soup in one shot.
