  • Cabinets: Amish made of quartersawn white oak with miniwax Red Oak stain. All the cabinetry in the house was made by an Amish cabinetmaker in Wisconsin.
  • Countertops: Green Mountain Original soapstone
  • Backsplash: custom made by Artistic Abode. Made from 3x6 subway tiles, 1x6 liner tile, 6x6 art tiles and scattered 3x3 art tiles.
  • Flooring: quartersawn red oak with no stain, site finished with 3 or 4 coats of poly.
  • Faucet: Kohler Simplice
  • Sink: the ever popular single bowl Ticor
  • Refrigerator: Amana French door
  • Range: Blue Star 36"
  • Range hood: Futuro
  • Microwave: Advantium 120. It is a convection so it serves as our second oven and we are really enjoying the combination of that with the Blue Star range.
  • Hardware: Amerock Forgings Four Square pulls and knobs. The pulls are a standard 3" pull.
  • Paint: SW Humble Gold
  • Cutting board: John Boos block from Select Appliance.
  • Stools: from Bed Bath and Beyond
  • Lighting: Mackintosh Leaf Stained Glass Mini Pendant by Medya Tiffany from 1stoplighting
  • Pantry: Our reach in pantry has custom made cafe doors which match our cabinets and a pendant light which matches the pendants over our island and in the nook. The overall dimensions are that it is 32" wide by 25" deep. The shelves were built specifically to house the CanSolidator which I bought at Costco after seeing one on the BAH forum. The bottom shelf is 20" off the floor and then moving up from there, I have a 17" shelf, 13", 13" and 17". The two 13" shelves are where the CanSolidator is. On the very bottom shelf, I bought wire baskets for bread and "snacks" and then hanging baskets for my dish towels. The cafe doors were custom made. The doors swing both ways. I believe the hardware is called a cafe door hinge.
  • Island is 54" deep and a little over 9 ft long.
