Hi everyone...good news, I only have three more radiation treatments left next week.
I have been trying to concentrate on the kitchen addition. It's so time consuming.
The design has changed, since the two dishwashers are not working in the corner.
I am tweaking the design now. I am not happy with the kitchen range hood, so we are changing that.
We are currently waiting on the designer to give us an estimate for darker cabinets, similar to the dining room.
If we go that route, we can always use the existing kitchen cabinets in our laundry room.
This drawing is not the right colors, wall, sink, floor, etc.
It's pretty amazing how many times we change things.
We went to a Plumbing showroom the other day.
The salesman is a chef, so he offered many good tips.
He said a shelf above the range top would be a greasy mess.
We ordered the Wolf gas range top. It was difficult decide between the Thermador and Wolf.
We are losing the appliance garage on the range top wall, because he suggested putting in a prep sink. I will put it in that corner
He told us if we put in a single bowl sink, it would be difficult at
times to use, because we could have pots and pans there.
A prep sink close to the range with a garage disposal and faucet with a spray would be very useful for veggies and such.
We also added spice pull-outs on each side of the range top cabinet.
We also changed our design regarding the box window.
It was a problem, so our contractor suggested recessing the
kitchen window. The box will be outside, reversed. Lose the three windows there. Add a new window and bring it in.
Then our appliances and sink would all line up inside the kitchen.
The gable roof outside will act as a extended roof. Open the sides up and add two posts or columns. Add the stone and precast.
With the box outside, we could add a window seat or counter.
I found a French casement window that pushes out, without a bar.
I love this sink.
The chef also said going with a copper sink is more sanitary. anti-bacterial. They are not difficult to maintain.
We have a copper bar sink in our dining room.
He also showed us a touchless faucet.
It's great when your hands are messy or full of flour.
I also told the designer I love how our dining room cabinets
go in and out with the flutes. I want the hood to come out more, because the cabinet with the range top will be 3 inches forward with flutes.
Tedious, but so worth it.
The roofers are here today, putting the roof on the new addition. They will also install the two skylights.
We still need to select our granite and backsplash.
I hope to hammer out the cabinetry details and get them ordered.
The electrician, insulation and drywall can then come in.
Let's get this show on the road.
Love this tile.
Ok, that's it for now.
Enjoy your week-end and take care.
I appreciate each and everyone of you. Hugs....
