Of course, things aren’t finished. Not any closer, really. But look:
It’s a new dishwasher!
The replacement Electrolux was unrepairable, so Tasco got them to accept another return, and we traded up to Miele. La-di-dah! The price was a bit out of our comfort zone, but we were so sick of poorly made stuff, we went with the German engineering. It’s great. It’s very quiet, cleans better than the previous one, and best of all No Leaks!
So we continue to wait for the outside to be finished. Some day.
