DH built in a closet which we covered with door units from cabinet people to give a uniform look, lots of storage; DH also built the hood top since we did not like the looks of the standard one from Quality; we ordered finished plywood and beadboard and trim pieces and he improvised; note the lowered microwave shelf for safety; all the copper and brass displayed in the kitchen are from travels in Turkey; bookcases on island we're enjoying having cookbooks at hand.

The pantry wall is something we've carried with us from past two builds and I would not give it up for anything since it holds tons. Using only the doors & doorframes saved a lot over pantry/utility cabinets and still gave the look of the cabinetry.
