Lights, countertops, action...

Well, if you count water from the faucet as action. It's certainly a milestone, a long time in coming (four months). We are in absolute awe of how beautiful these mahaghony countertops are--a splurge that just completely warms the room. The cream-colored cabinets also seem to work. Doors arrive next week. Have to get the stove connected, hood vent hooked up, etc., but we're really getting close suddenly. Yahoo!

Like this pendant light?

That's the question of the day! Note that the builders and painters have been busy while we were away--although the island is not the baby blue my flash made it.
Clayton's shirt, on the other hand, really is turquoise.

Making the kitchen

The carpenters work on the island. This is a view from the corner of the kitchen by the garage, looking toward the dining room. To the right of the dining room door is where the fridge will go. You can see the pantry off in the background to the left of the dining room door. The big empty box will hold the dishwasher (in the island). To the right of the closet door, you can see a cupboard above the desk.
Right? Right....

Building blocks to configure

We're moving around the cabinet shells to make sure we'll have sufficient walking space around the island. Crazy. Can you see the trim around the window and the baseboards? Makes a real difference. And then there's that nice oak floor... couldn't have matched the floor in the rest of the house better if it was our top priority (and it actually wasn't!).
