Nearly done!

So today we got the countertop. The plumber finished his work. And the electrician sort of finished. He still has several things to finish. He will be the last man standing.

The counter people were extremely proud of their counter with its embedded cooktop. We got a pot of water boiling and discussed the way the controls work. Pictures to come in another post. Here are pictures from today with captions.

Workers are gone. Still electric things to go but mostly done.
Luther called the island Greenland 🙂
Wine cooler has 2 temperatures, one for white, one for red.

Tonight I cooked dinner up here. But not in the kitchen. I had marinated a flank steak and cooked it on the outside fireplace. But I had to stay nearby to tend the fire to get it hot so I stayed upstairs for the first time. I found it very comfortable. I love the sofa. Here is a view of the kitchen from the sofa. Loving it. Finally a relaxing moment. 🙂

    Hi Lindsay, so many kitchens here are super sleek and modern. My last one was even more so. You’re right, the wood warms it. I wanted the island to be wood so it was more a piece of furniture than a kitchen island. To sort of connect it to the room. There was already a lot of wood in the room.

    Well, this is exciting, everything is shaping up so well. It looks contemporary but warm as well, the wood adds a lovely texture contrasting with the sleek units.
    Worth waiting for, I’d say, I’m already lusting after the wine cooler.
