Soon to Be Replaced

DSC_3231On Thursday our new refrigerator should be delivered, to replace our noisy twelve year old one. It was more of a production then you might think to get a new one as in order to get one that we liked we needed a bit more vertical space. So first we had to have the upper cabinet cut down slightly (a few inches).

Reinstalling the cabinet after it was cut down is turning out to be a bit harder then I was anticipating, so that will have to wait until next week when I hopefully will have a second set of hands. I'll also probably be running the new water line at the same time, since we'll be joining the rest of the world with an automatic icemaker and water dispenser.

Regardless changing the cabinet provided a bit more flexibility in choosing the new fridge, rather then being constrained to either ones the same size as our existing one or the single model that was only slightly larger and cost way more then a fridge that size should have.

It feels a little strange to be switching fridges before the current one has actually officially given up the ghost, but it seemed silly to wait and lose a whole refrigerator worth of food just because we wanted to eek a few more months out.

It will be nice to have something that is not quite so obnoxiously loud. I'm also looking forward to a larger freezer.
