I have to look up when the last set of photos I posted was, but it seems like a long time ago. Things have definitely come along, and we’re starting to get excited to finish (we’re waiting on the stainless steel countertops at this point). One wall is 98% done (the one you see in the photos with the refrigerator and ovens, and the other two areas (one against the other wall, and the island) are still in process. The good news is that we can now cook in a real oven and use our dishwasher. We still don’t have the sink or cooktop, so that does limit what we can do.
Some other things you’ll see in the photos—early photos are of the kitchen before the cabinet doors went in, all our appliances while they were still in boxes, the walnut slab that will be half of the island (we’re super excited about this), and the fireplace, which had little to do with the kitchen except the fact that it was surrounded by pink tile which we hated.
Since we ended up having to replace the floor with new bamboo, we decided to pull out the tiles from around the fireplace since the floor had to work around them anyways. We’re putting slate tiles on the floor and are still trying to figure out what to do as the surround.
