Home Improvement Project #1: New Dishwasher

When we bought this house, we knew that the dishwasher was broken.  Now, I realize that a dishwasher is not really a necessity, but after having lived with one for the past 7 years, it's definitely hard to go back to not having one.  So at the top of our list of home improvement projects was to get a new one.  Neither my husband or I have the time or the know-how to take on installing a dishwasher ourselves, so we opted to hire it out.  And I'm very glad we did!

When the installer arrived this morning and started trying to take out our old dishwasher, he hit a bit of a snag:  the ceramic tile was put down after the previous dishwasher was put in, so the floor was actually higher than the the dishwasher (ugh!).  But luckily, after much hard work on his part, he was able to tilt it up just enough to slide it out (whew!).  Installing the new one was a bit of a struggle as well, since the opening between the floor and counter top is shorter than it should be, but he did it (hooray!). 

Now to test it out on all those dirty dishes that have been piling up...
