This is so great and I couldn't be happier if it were my own. I look forward to seeing all the fabulous meals you prepare!

 

Now you've gone too far.  Happy as I may be for Weinoo, I'd be a little happier if he'd built it out for me...

Starting to look a little more like an in-use kitchen.

 

A very nice in-use kitchen.

The end is nigh...(I hope)...

I ended up putting a magnetic knife strip at each end of the counter above, as I felt the stainless shelves were in the way, had I put them on the panel next to the fridge.

 

I ordered 4 more of those rollout shelves shown for that 18" pantry; I'll going to try and keep all my dishes and glassware on those, which are just perfectly in reach of the dishwasher. Wine glasses can go in that wall cabinet above the counter.

 

There's a shelf that goes on the riser in back of the range, that didn't make it into these pictures.

 

There are a few weirdnesses that I haven't decided whether I want to correct or not.  The butcher block is actually thicker than the quartz counter top by about1/16", so there is more of a lip on one side of the range, unnoticeable to anyone except the damn cook.  Evidently, stone is cut in cm, and I was told to order the butcher block 1 1/4" thick. Just another reason contractors drive me crazy.

 

The sink is literally 30% larger in cubic inches than my old sink. Both deeper and wider, and I think I really like it.

 

I am keeping my fingers crossed to be 100% done with kitchen and bath by end of next week. Still have to receive and install the vanity, and the kitchen sink drain/strainer is being replaced, as the plumber tried to get by with a different drain than i originally ordered, since they lost that one. I simply reordered a new one, and told them to replace the one they had put in.  And the floor will get a buffing and another coat of finish.

Stunning!

What will go on the shelf over the long prep counter?

Love to see another picture when you have everything in it’s place.

Good question - I was thinking of various mason jars with rices, beans, pulses, etc.  The shelf won't hold a ton of weight, so I need to choose carefully.

 

I'm gonna wait until the floor is redone before I really start unpacking. I'm pretty tired of cleaning sawdust!

Or frequently used herbs, spices in nice containers!

I actually bought custom made inserts for a few of those drawers; I hope to have them next week.  One is for spices/dried herbs.
