I'm happiest to see the new outlets coming in: one can be seen easily on the side of the island: these had previously been two outlets instead of four, and there were two on the island itself between the counter height section and the bar height section. Happily, these have been successfully moved and replaced.
The island is also set up now to be just a little taller than the rest of the counters: a change that was not completely expected. There is an additional two inches of height that have been added to these counters: making cooking and preparation a little easier for the taller members of my family - mostly my mom. After spending some time cooking yesterday, I can see how those couple inches will make a difference.
The whole kitchen is going to be magnificent. Part of me can't believe it is finally happening! But, I'm definitely glad to see just how the whole project will come to in the end, and I will continue to share the progress here as well!
