RE: Sink in front of low window / banquette / old house (Follow-Up #2)

Okay, well since you just BEGGED me -- here are a few more photos! (and now that I know how to do it!)

Here's the outside (from Christmas last year)

this is an even better "before" picture of the kitchen -- this is the wall where the stove is now - you can see into my daughter's bedroom above - and you can see the small stove chimney as well

This is what we did in the den - same cabinet maker (the tv cabinet is actually a plumbing chase to hide the plumbing from a bathroom that we added upstairs as part of this renovation)

Oh, and this is fun, too -- at some point in its history, an old fireplace had been removed -- this is back-to-back with the kitchen one. We used an old surround and re-created the fireplace, plus had a carpenter make us the china cabinet. You'll recognize the same tile from the kitchen.

We've also redone three bathrooms and finished the basement, but I won't bore you with the whole thing! My husband and I joke that we won't know what to talk about when we don't have a house to renovate anymore!

still creeping along at a snails pace. i think i'm getting over it ...and just dealing. what else can i do? i don't think it's worth whacking out my blood pressure, kwim?

the fridge/freezer wall. i'm loving it. the fridge on the left (closest to range and breakfast room). hidden inside the center doors: open shelving and two large appliance garages for micro, coffee maker, etc... on the right, the freezer.

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!
Photobucket

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.
