And they're off again...


This is NOT the island

Oven tower and fridge hideout

In recent weeks (for at least the last two) progress has all but stalled. Apart for the ceiling lights in the bathroom, there hadn't been anything happening, but it's all changed now that the kitchen has been delivered. It arrived yesterday, and installation started there and then. 

This gap should accommodate a reasonable number of bottles, don't you reckon?

Wine fridges go here.

The high cupboards and the island went up today, giving much more a sense of what the room will feel like once all done, and it is all looking rather lovely. It is actually nice to see it for real, at long last, after seeing surface samples and 3D renderings. The debate about having low or high cupboards with dark finish went on for some time, but I always thought it would be much nicer to have the high cupboards darker, and I am pleased to see that it is working exactly as I imagined. Can't wait to see it all finished now. We still have to decide on the floor, but the end of the tunnel has become slightly visible now... 

Outside, the first coat of paint has been applied, and it's looking rather fine, don't you think? 

Cat used to provide some contrast...
