Focusing on the rebuilding of our home and our lives post fire.

Here we have the two kitchen faucets we're debating between. First is the KohlerVinnata, a very popular selection in new kitchens these days which is not surprising with its traditional antique look. The other is the Moen Aberdeen which is a little more streamlined. Both have the pull down faucet head and both come in multiple finishes. (I think we're leaning towards more of a stainless/matte finish versus the chrome that the Vinnata is shown in here.) The Vinnata has the handle attached, while the Aberdeen has it separate.
I came this close to winning an ebay bid on one of these the other day... over $100 less than what you can find it for elsewhere, but it might be for the best bc i realized that any warranty would be void and the potential for something not to work in a faucet is greater than, say, a cabinet pull. In any case, that opens back up the debate on which we want to go with...... guesses on which we're leaning towards?
We are rebuilding our house after losing it in a massive fire on November 17, 2007. It's been a difficult ordeal-- losing so much, being displaced and then dealing with the major nightmare of our insurance company... but this blog is an effort to focus on the future and the path we're taking to get there. It's an effort to focus on the positive-- that we are rebuilding, rebuilding a house that we never otherwise could have found-- a house according to our tastes exactly. I've vowed not to bring up insurance or banking headaches or even the multitude of heartaches of the past year plus, but instead to focus solely on the exciting (and sometimes frivolous) adventures in building a house. More importantly, having lost so much of our 'history'in the fire.... this is the beginning of a new story, the story of our new HOME....
