Things are taking shape in the kitchen. The appliances went in today, and all the wood trim on the doorways and cabinets is done. All that's left is the countertops and tile backsplash, plus a few minor things like the hardware for the cabinet doors and drawers.
Here's an overview of the room; you can see the new sink, dishwasher, stove, and ventilation hood.
Here's another look at that stove. This was our big splurge in this project - the six-burner professional range of the sort that I have coveted my entire adult life.
Here is a look at the cabinets in what used to be the pantry - this is where the washer-dryer was, in what used to be the butler's pantry.
Looking back from the former butler's pantry into the kitchen, we see David posing with the new doorframe and window frame that got built yesterday and today. And there is that stove again!
Here is the banquette - one of the fun parts of the design. There is storage space - drawers - under the seat. We will have a cushion made for it and place a table in front of it, and that will be our new kitchen seating. Just for comparison, I've added below a picture of what this corner of the kitchen looked like before the project began.
