Wow! That is absolutely amazing!Marjan - Cowroad
Thank you Marjan.
Indeed very different and beautiful.
I hope it will be when it's finished.
Very quick progress. Looking good too.
I'm amazed at how quick it's been.
Rick picked an excellent kitchen team. They appear to have worked swiftly and efficiently. I guess that Rick would have bitten them if they had been slacking.
He's keeping a very close eye on them (and their biscuits).
That is fast! My daughter and family have been out of their home since mid-June (staying with me) and are just now getting the drywall finished. Their whole lower floor was gutted.
It's been a long wait for this particular team of builders but it was well worth it.
This is so exciting. It's going to look lovely. I'm keen to see your benchtops, I am planning new ones but am undecided what to choose as yet. Love the timber that we often see in English kitchens ( on Escape to the country) but think water would be a long term problem with them. Do you have Ceasar stone over there? Man made , durable , not as expensive as granite?
The worktops (apart from the oak island) will be white mirror chip quartz. You can oil the wooden benchtops to stop water stains but I thought it would be more practical to have the quartz.
Yes, I think your quartz is like our Ceasarstone. Sort of stone chips machined together in some way to make a solid stone.
Wow! That is a speedy transformation! It's looking good.
One day's work!
Cor! It looks very chic. I wish I had two ovens.
And...we have a warming drawer that will prove dough (as well as heating plates)!
Looking a bit different now isn't it?
Oh no, an island.
I love an island. I pretend I'm a tv chef. Wait 'til you see my bar stools!
It is going to be a fab kitchen when completed. One thing I do not understand is why the sharp corners on the island, to my way of thinking large round corner would be better and protect the user from accidental knocks ?
It's not finished. They are rounding off the end today.
Isn't it a great feeling when you can finally see how it looks, rather than trying to visualise it from a plan or computer generated design?
Absolutely! I've been waiting to see it come 'alive' for so long.
Coming along nicely.
Very pleased with it so far. Rick likes it because he can run around the island.
Are you introducing any colour? Tiles? It is looking great so far. My kitchen is about the size of your island!!
Bright yellow/orange bar stools and blind. Pewter coloured glass splashback. Not sure about tiles yet.
I am amazed at how quickly it has taken shape. No works in our house ever went that quickly. It will be great when it's finished.
It might be finished tomorrow if the electrician can get here. If not, Monday. Two weeks in total.
