Since my last update on the remodeling project, a lot has changed in the kitchen. First, the gray wallboard I showed last time was nicely plastered. Then the new hardwood floor went in. Now, about two-thirds of the new cabinets are in place.
Here is the segment that will contain the kitchen sink:
This part will have the stove in the middle. (The plank resting on top of the cabinets at the moment is some stock that they are going to use to build the banquette for our kitchen table in another corner of the room.)
Here's a look at the L-shaped turn in the kitchen, where the butler's pantry (and washer-dryer) used to be. The gap in the front is for the dishwasher.
Isn't that pretty? The floor, by the way, is oak, and the gorgeous cabinets are cherry with a natural (unstained) finish. We have been told that the cherry will darken a bit with age but it will retain its rich golden color and pretty natural patterns of lines. I love it. I was so excited when I came home and saw it last night that I was jumping up and down in the middle of the room.
Not a lot has happened in the bathroom since I last reported - they finished the wallboard and plastering in there, and installed a new window, but that's all. The tiles are piled up in the living room waiting to be installed, and the toilet and sink and stuff are in storage at the plumbing supply place.
Stay tuned ...
