I'll just quickly share a couple shots of the finished kitchen here:
This first picture is taken looking into the same corner as the picture from early December.
This row of cabinets is on the wall opposite the range.
The kitchen works, and is delightful. It has lots of space and lots of light. As soon as it was all finished, I completely forgot the inconvenience of the previous 93 days without plumbing in the kitchen. Now I'm unpacking the rest of the moving boxes, shuffling stuff around to where it actually belongs--and making room for our next toy.....
