  • White maple custom shaker cabinets w/ Classic Brass hinges, knobs and pulls in brushed nickel. "Chantilly Lace" by BMoore white paint. A little water damage on sink drawers and some chipping on heavily used trash drawer but over all LOVE IT!
    Drawers have those automatic closing hinge-thingies – LOVE THEM!!
    New seeded glass in hutch cabinet with smoked grey mirror below. LOVE IT.
  • White carrera marble counter tops 1 ¼-inch slab. Sealed with magic-bullet…no real staining or etching issues. I even cut on it when in a hurry but the marks just rub out. LOVE IT!
  • Lacanche Cluny 1400 in matte black with stainless & chrome (warming cabinet, gas oven, electric oven, 5 burners w/ portable simmer plate)... I really can't say enough about this masterpiece! No bells and whistles - no hassles! LOVE IT!
  • Walker Zanger 4 X 8 white subway tile backsplash with shelf and surround. LOVE IT!
  • Jenn-Air DW - not fully installed with panel and rubber seal yet, so it's pretty noisy. Cleans very well, but doesn't dry all the way. LIKE IT OK.
  • Price Pfister faucet in polished chrome. Heard they drip, but no real issues. LIKE IT A LOT.
  • Under mount fireclay farmhouse sink found on Ebay. I wish the tubs were deeper, but it cleans up well with astonish paste. LOVE IT.
  • Under counter halogen lights are great, but are really hot. They even warm the food in the cupboards. We are switching to fluorescent. LIKE IT.
  • waiting for 36' SZ or KA fridge
  • custom VAH blower
  • Franke Little Butler Insta-Hot tap.
