Link to kitchen photos: our photos: These pictures are made up from a series of wide-angle shots that have been "stitched" together to make a single picture. One of the artifacts in creating this type of panorama is that straight lines can appear bent or curved. The floor tile, drawer faces and cabinets can look curved in some places where they really are NOT.
More photos:

  • Cabinets: Shaker in natural cherry were made by our neighbor, Sal.
  • Granite: Tropical Leaf from Brazil (the pictures don't really do it justice)
  • Backsplash: Autumn Gold Slate, Tumbled 4 x 4. The little accent glass is American Olean Green Blend.
  • Sink: Made to order by HandCrafted Metal in 14 ga. Stainless.
  • Hood: 42" Independent, Santa Fe, SNFEI42SS
  • Cooktop: Bluestar, RGTNB36-6B
  • Remote Blower: Fantech, FKD10XL
  • Fridge: Jenn-Air, JS48PPFXDA
  • DW: Jenn-Air, JDB2150AWP
  • Ovens: Thermador, SECD302BP

  • Speed Cook/Micro: GE Monogram Advantium ZSC2001FSS
  • Floor: 16" Daltile Donegal Verde through body porcelain with Spectralock epoxy grout.
  • Paint:
    The lightest green, Lunar Tide (Lowe's - American Tradition) was used on the ceiling and inside the pantry. Yes, behind the glass door is a pantry.
    The medium green, Bayou Shade (Lowe's - American Tradition) is on the wall to the left of the island.
    The darker green, LaFonda Wild West Green (Lowe's - American Tradition) is in the nook and outside the pantry.
    The red around the windows is Spanish Tile (Lowe's - Valspar).
    The pantry is also beautiful inside. Doug built custom shelving and I painted the walls and the selving all Lunar Tide. I wanted an old fashion looking pantry.

Except for the cabinetry and countertops we did ALL the work ourselves.

The ceiling is 8' and the hood is 34" above the the cooktop. (Mfg. recommends 30-36")
