Check it out… photos of the present status of things. The base cabinets are set in place, and we’ve fine tuned the placement of the center island. I’m still stunned at all of the space. It’s over twice what we had. The lead carpenter/super nice guy George from AWDB did a mock up of the counter top on the island so that we could get a feel for what it would be like.

Cool beans. 🙂

P.S. Someone asked… this is the company propaganda on our new fridge. Cooler beans. And some are frozen. 🙂

So today the cabinets and appliances were delivered. EEEEEEeeeeeeeep!!!

Yes, I confess to being excited. However, the when I put the hardware up to the cabinets, it immediately made the decision for me. The one in the middle (the knob) is the clear winner. The other knob is the wrong color, and the pull is just not right. It looks too “busy” to me. I know these things are subjective. But I also know when I know that I know.

SOoo… first pictures of the cabinets:


And the floor (which was installed yesterday – I had a 12 hour shift and didn’t get to take pictures…):


And a bonus – appliances wrapped in plastic wrap (contain your excitement!):

We’ve been framed!

The outside structure of the addition is now up. We can start to see what it will look like. Everything is under tarps because of the rain, but here’s a couple of shots.

This is the rough size of the kitchen part of the addition. To the left of this there will be a small porch.

Looking at the roofline of the addition and the new porch.

Now if the rain would just STOP, they’ll be able to do more work outside tomorrow! (I’d say “rain rain go away” but we need it!)
