Kitchen Design

We went to Home Depot to sit down with Sabrina, our kitchen designer, this weekend. We were there for about two hours! Here is what we came up with. We haven't officially ordered it yet, but plan to do so in the next few days.

Here is a view of the kitchen you would get sitting at the island. It's huge, 9ft long! Here is another view. This would be standing between the island and these cabinets, facing away from the island. The fridge is on the left. We bumped the sink cabinets out and added decorative feet. The dishwasher is to the right of the sink. The pantry is on the right. The two cabinets above the sink will be glass fronts.

Here is the view you would get standing between the cabinets and the island, facing the island. We had the microwave built into this. The stove will be a slide-in and gas. We plan to have all the appliances stainless steel. The drawers to the left of the stove will be deep pots & pans drawers.

Here is the style of cabinet we chose. The main cabinets will be maple, the island will be cherry.
Here is the color we chose for the main cabinets. It has a vanilla bean glaze.

Here is the island cabinet color. It's peppercorn.

Here are the granite countertop choices we narrowed it down to. Which one do you like? Please leave a comment.

Privacy Fence In Progress

Our privacy fence is being installed. It's almost done! I'm so excited. Here's some pics to show you the progress.

Here is what our backyard looked like before. Notice the rickity old fence on the right and no fence next to the left of the garage. Here is the new fence. It's not quite finished, but what a change!
Here's another view.
Here's where the gate will go on the side of the house-access from the front yard.

Here's where the gate will go in the back of the yard, next to the garage-access from the alley.
