Go to Elberton! It's granite central for this area and there are several companies with huge warehouses. We used Coy Turner at Turner Granite and he was terrific.

Almost Finished Pics - long time coming...

posted by: aokat15 on 02.09.2012 at 02:59 pm in Kitchens Forum

I'm still waiting to finish up some small details - such as having my potfiller installed - but I thought I'd post my almost finished pics. I've posted some pics along the way, but here is where we're at now. It's been almost 2 years since we purchased our home and we are slowly coming to the end of a long whole house renovation and addition. Gardenweb has been an amazing source for inspiration and guidance - thanks for all of your help along the way. Let me know if you want any info.

To the right of my refrigerator is an oversized walk-in pantry. There are temporary shelves in there now... someday soon we'll have cabinets and nice shelving and I'll share those pics as well :)

Cabinets installed - Need advice ASAP

posted by: nollie_gardener on 01.26.2011 at 10:29 pm in Kitchens Forum

I would love to get your opinions on my cabinets and my granite selection. The granite installer is coming tomorrow to template and I just need some reassurance of my granite selection (that I made back in December) or redirection if necessary before the granite is cut. Please give me your honest opinions. I'll have a hammered copper sink in both my island (prep) and under one of my windows (main sink). I will also have a tile backsplash (not picked out yet). My fixtures will probably be ORB or something similiar. Also any opinions on hardware are welcome. I'm considering some drop pulls along with some knobs. By the way I will also have a cabinet with glass doors that will sit on the granite in the corner by the door.

Here's the granite I have on hold. There are two slabs (mirrored actually).

thought i'd post an update

well, things are still moving very slowly and i am beyond upset with our builder. that's a story i don't want to go into as it just upsets me more. let's just say there are far too many days i find myself breaking into the little bottle my doctor gave me to use in extreme situations only. we are on month #28 ...and counting.

the cabinet maker came in today to work on the folding doors for the baking center and breakfast bar. i love the hinges we found for the baking center (non operable) but we need a few more for the upper glass front cabs.

i think the appliance garages for the breakfast bar look cool, but i can tell already that i went a little crazy with all the doors. while it will be nice to hide that section away when company is here it will no doubt remain open for business the other 363 days of the year!

we're waiting on the flooring to be completed to install the legs for the island. while i initially thought it would be a little too big, i find the size is comfortable for the space. it affords a lot of extra storage as well as houses my turbo-chef oven. while i HAD to have that oven, i'm not hot on the look of it. -i know, everyone loves it. except me.

i also thought i'd include a pic of the mudroom pendant. i bought it from an ebay vendor. it may sound crazy, but it is one of my most favorite things about the house! it's absolutely stunning IRL!

they finally started doing the millwork on the fireplaces and our stairs are being installed. as soon as they're complete we'll go over our punch list, paint and do the floors. while some lighting is in, i wouldn't let them hang any more until the floors are sanded. yeah, i'm crazy like that.

i'll be back soon. i have to break into my bottle of happy pills.
