The Kitchen: It's All Coming Together

The past couple weeks have been extremely productive! Our kitchen cabinets were installed last week, and look great. Our carpenter, Randy Ingraham, installed the plywood cabinets and solid maple doors unfinished (not stained or painted), as my dad offered to finish them for us. Everything fits just as planned and it is a great feeling to see our floor plans come to reality. Randy did a great job meeting our fast schedule and custom dimensions.
Initial installation shots:
We had the doors and drawer fronts built in a flat panel, full overlay style for a simple, clean look.
Later in the week, Marc Stone worked his magic and put the ‘finishing’ touches on our cabinets. They were stained with the same dark finish that Matt used on the beams. The maple doors look bold and modern now with their new coat on! We had some of the cabinet doors and open shelves finished in white, to create some visual contrast and give the kitchen more of a modern look. I can not wait to see everything put together!
All of the appliances and fixtures are officially on site or in transit. Our refrigerator and sink are in place while the rest of the appliances are sitting in the middle of the room, waiting their turn. We went with an under-mount sink with 90 degree corners, in order to work easily with the form for our concrete counters. I found a double basin, stainless sink for a great price from Signature Hardware and it shipped in three days! We also recently ordered our Moen faucet from Famous Supply, and it should be here very soon.
Before the staining was even complete, Matt started building the form for our concrete counter tops. I am sure he will want to post about this, with all the details of the grueling process, so look for that post soon!
