    Thanks K9 and Racr. The best thing I did was to add that second sink/garbage disposal in the island. I can do prep work while DH does the dishes. icon_wink.gif

    icon_lol.gif Brilliant idea, Deely! Unfortunately I don't have a place for a second sink or a dishwashing Sweetie. icon_cool.gif

    I too want to re-do my kitchen so bad! This thread is a great source of information for me. On your search for appliances I'll give my two cents worth - I had GE appliances for first 20 years of marriage and I went thru more heating coils, burners and electrical heating elements than you can count on two hands. I purchased a Whirlpool Gold electric oven and had it for 18 years - the circuit board went out on it and my mother purchased my Maytag oven. I LOVED the Whirlpool Gold oven but love the Maytag even more. I like that the bottom element is UNDER the bottom of the oven. I've now had it almost 3 years and love it as much as I did when I got it. I am not sure why GE has so many issues with their heating elements but I know I am not alone with those issues. If you do a lot of baking stay with a convection oven ask those that have had their ovens for a few years. Love the glass knobs & pulls!! Can't wait to see the finished job!!

    Thanks for the input Cindi! Now that you were specific, I remember my Gma had trouble with GE elements and that was over 40 years ago. (@#$% I'm getting old.) My range will be gas. This will be my first convection oven and I'm quite excited about it.

    I should be getting countertop and cabinet finish samples any day. icon_cool.gif

    The countertops and sink are chosen! Livingstone didn't have a great white so it looks like I'll be using Tundra. It is the black speckled sample. The molded in sink will be bright white. Both samples are sitting on a sample of a cabinet finish.

    The red handles don't "pop" enough on the natural light oak. The contractor is doing a sample with a white glaze. I think I'll like that better.

    They might start building as early as next week. The cabinet contractor agreed to do the countertops as well. None of the kitchen will be torn up until everything is completed in the shop and ready for installation. I'm thrilled that the kitchen will be torn up for a minimal time. icon_biggrin.gif

    I LOVE your selections!!!
    This is almost as exciting as have a kitchen makeover myself - more so because it's free. icon_lol.gif

    Very cool that the kitchen will be down for a minimal time. Please keep updating. I love this stuff. icon_cool.gif

    Thanks, K9! I've met a little resistance with the choice of oak cabinets. All of the contractors want to "guide" me towards maple. There IS a method to my madness.

    The kitchen and living areas are a flowing open space. All of my wood furniture is oak. (Some of it is way over 100 years old. One piece belonged to my great grandmother.) Even the painted furniture is oak. I want the heavy grain of the oak cabinets to "pull" the rooms together even though they will be different colors. There are some beautiful antique ruby red pieces of glass in the oak china cabinet soooooooo ruby red glass handles made perfect sense to me.

    Unfortunately some of my research leads to things that are beyond my price point. I found this built in mixer yesterday. I'd like to change my answer on the $1,000 windfall from "jewelry" to built in mixer. LOL

    Materials have arrived at the shop and cabinet construction has begun. Tentative demo date is Wed the 18th. Time to finalize appliances and get the handles and knobs ordered. icon_biggrin.gif

    I will have lots of pictures from demo day on. Please don't be disappointed though because this won't be anything like Property Brothers. I don't have their design skills OR their budgets. Sure wish I did. icon_cool.gif

    This will be much better than Property Brothers because most of us don't have their budget and design skills. It's way cooler to see what our friends are doing icon_cool.gif

    Getting closer! The contractor dropped off a sample of the white glaze for the cabinets. The top pic is the natural oak and the bottom is the white glaze. Not a lot of difference but enough to know I LOVE the white glaze. icon_smile.gif



    He also dropped off a larger sample of the countertops.

    The Carrera marble trim will be used at the top of the backsplash where there aren't any cabinets.


    I'm still trying to decide if I can find a use for the Carrera rectangles. I thought about a border through the backsplash but am afraid it will get too cluttered looking. Now I'm thinking maybe a diagonal setting behind the stove, edged with the border trim.
