Paint and cabinets

The interior is beginning to look like a house! Last week, actually starting the week before, the interior got its first two coats of paint. “Agreeable gray” turned out to be an agreeable choice. Not white, exactly, but certainly not dim or dismal. It’s a color that will let others stand out.

The big news, though, is cabinets–in the kitchen, the pantry, the laundry, and the bathrooms. And what a difference they make! The kitchen went from this…

Empty kitchen

…to this…

Kitchen, northeast corner

…and this…

Kitchen, northwest corner

…and the island looking like this.

Here’s a peek inside the pantry.


And one into the laundry.

And in the master bath…

… those cabinets standing in the door into the closet will be towers on either side of the central mirror.

The lighting in these pictures isn’t so great because I was working only with ambient light. Some of the light fixtures we’ve ordered have come in, as have some of the wall switches, but some of the fancier stuff won’t be in until May! Well, that just slows things down. Meanwhile, the next step is to “template” the counter tops, that is, make the measurements for their exact dimensions. I need to go into Tucson this week to re-select the granite for some of these counters because the pieces we originally selected weren’t reserved and so have been sold. Bummer. I hope the stone that’s been brought in from California will be as nice.
