I found a new husband time out spot! He spent a fair amount of time sitting in there pondering how he was going to install the new dishwasher.
Eleven years of crud under the old dishwasher looks like this. The only thing that looks pretty good under there is the tile grout! It wasn't as bad as I had anticipated - yeah!
The new machine in the spot. We had a horrid time figuring out how to raise it up to the counter height. The front legs were easy but for the life of us we coudln't figure out how to raise the back ones. I google and I googled and finally posted on Gardenweb asking to see if anyone knew.
We need to add a bit of trim to flush it out because the European dishwashers are a little narrower than the standard 24" wide hole in North American kitchens. I'm glad we figured out the height thing because the top was a huge gaping hole!
