Sneak Peek at the Kitchen Plans

Howdy homebodies!  Amidst all the minor yet major decisions we are making for the construction of our casa we do occasionally get a glimpse of how things will actually turn out!  What do I mean you ask?  Well a lot of what we are doing is just imagining how this and that will look and if it will work.  But....we decided we needed to get specific about our kitchen cabinets in order to avoid any mistakes once they are being built.  So we hired Wilson the architect again to draw up exactly what we are looking for in the cabs.  This is something we previously thought we could just draw out and talk to the cabinet guy about but we have had so many hiccups that we don't want to chance any miscommunication.  Wanna see what we are shooting for?

Ah AAAAA!  This is the main wall of cabinetry that sits behind our island.  I wanted the fridge to look as "built in" as possible so we took the cabinet above the fridge up to the ceiling and it juts out to the edge of the refrigerator too.  On the right side you will see the cabinets go from floor to ceiling to not only imitate the left side and create symmetry but they also jut out a bit on the countertop and create an appliance garage!  We will have a couple of shelves in there.  One shelf will house our microwave and then we can keep our toaster, big mixer, and any other gadgets in the lower section.  These doors will hopefully slide in on each side and look a lot like this....

Here is how it all looks from up above.  The main wall of cabinetry is back behind the island.

The main area of the kitchen faces these windows which will be where the dining table sits. We can't wait to clean up those trees a bit more and see what we will be able to see while we scrub the dishes.  

I'm going to show you the other options we considered going with the kitchen cabinets and the bathrooms too.  But first I HAVE to make a decision on the master bathroom tile..It shouldn't be so hard but there are so many choices.  Check back soon!
