And we are so glad it’s finished.* The first picture was taken mid October; the middle one, on Wednesday of last week; and the last one, today.

* ‘finished’ here means that workmen won’t be going at it. We’ve still got to paint the walls and tile above the counter tops.

    That looks very good indeed – and not too spread out so you don’t waste time moving between units. I like the simple white finish, too.

      It’s actually a cream though you can’t tell from the photo. Not having to take long walks between units was one of my reasons for wanting a u-shaped kitchen. Another thing that you probably can’t see from the photo is that the counter top is higher than usual (about 950mm). I didn’t want to have to stoop too much to do the dishes. You can see the gap between the counter and the washing machine and drier.

    Very nice, Ken! We have a long-term plan to remodel our kitchen, but we don’t know when we’ll be able to afford it. We just refinanced our mortgage for a much lower monthly payment, though, so that should help…
