Our kitchen this afternoon
February 28, 2008
Back by popular demand… kitchen photos! I’ve slacked off on taking photos of the progress, because my initial enthusiasm is waning a bit after 3.5 weeks. But it’s coming along beautifully! This week they have laid the tile floor, installed the crown molding, and today they are cutting the granite tiles for the counter. It’s going to be so pretty!
Here’s where we were yesterday morning. They finished most of the tile floor, but hadn’t yet grouted the tile border.
Of course the animals had to walk on it to make sure it was acceptable on their little paws.
Then the cabinets’ crown molding went up. Nice!
Today they have been cutting the big granite tiles for the counters, and encountering challenges along the way. The granite is hard to cut straight, apparently.
Today they also finished grouting the longer tile border on the floor, but haven’t added the transition to the wood floor yet.
Here’s the other doorway, with the hardwood transition added. I love our floor!
We had always wanted an undermount sink, but after much deliberation, we’ve decided to go with a standard top mount. It was getting too complicated to make it work with our tile counter. As you can see, the tiles are huge, basically small slabs, but it was tricky to use them to mount the sink.
The counter is going to be really cool when it’s done!
