The crew set to work right away to install as many as they could before our contractor went on a well-deserved week's vacation. One of the things they discovered is that our house is not level - so they built a low base for these cabinets to level the counter top.
There was a lot of noise from drills and hammers; when we emerged again from our downstairs hideaway, most of the cabinets were up!
The new stove will go in the place on the left beyond the divider and the fridge will go in the hole straight ahead. There will be a matching alder wood panel to cover the "pony wall" that divides the working kitchen from the storage area.
You can see the skylight they installed in the kitchen ceiling. Best part of all, that beautiful wood-and-beam ceiling used to be covered up by a really, really ugly drop ceiling of plastic tiles.
And just look at how beautifully made the cabinetry is!
I had to insist to get my mitered corners, and I'm so glad I did - they look just as I had hoped. The open cabinet to the left has pull-out "tongues" for storage, as it's in a corner that would otherwise be wasted space.
The next task is to find knobs and pulls for the drawers and cabinets. Stand by for another progress report, one of these days.
