RE: finished kitchen (Follow-Up #17)

some posts disappeared, so I'll try to remember the questions...

someone asked about the dimensions...it's a little under 12x12. We struggled with the "island vs. no island" question, but took the advice of the KD. The island is 36x60 and we ended up with roughly 36" of walkway between the countertops. Still looking for the right stools.

lynn - you asked for a before pic....the soffits are gone in this picture, but you can clearly see where they used to be. Also note the plumbing vent we ended up working around rather than relocating....

First post - finished kitchen

Be gentle...learned a lot here during the past 3 months. We bought a gutted foreclosure house (pretty standard midwest 2 story colonial tract home)and bumbled our way through a renovation. Since *everything* in the house needed to be done all at once, we limited ourselves to maintaining existing walls and plumbing layout, etc. As a result, we couldn't get too creative with the kitchen space. Here's what we ended up with. It turned out pretty "brown", but we'll just call it "warm". All-in-all, we are happy so I guess that's all that matters.
