Not quite done, 95% at this point. However, had to share the lovely view today from lunch with my 4 year old sitting at our island....looking out the new 8' window!

window slides open like a 3 panel accordion. i swoon every time it slides open. i would upload a video for you if i knew how...

perimeter soapstone and island is calacatta marble. I run my hands over them every time in kitchen....so much better than formica :)

I'm here in RI also! Just not near the water, but close enough! I would love to see those windows in action. Is there a screen?

Murpharoo your window is eye catching and makes a very nice statement. Does your window have a hidden screen or was there an option for a hidden screen when you ordered your window like there are for the accordion doors?

the window was made by la cantina and does have a screen option. we havent done it yet and really havent needed it so far. nice to have the unobstructed view.

the island cabinets are a black brown color

the hardware is restoration hardware lugarno pulls. I tried to order them online but the shipping was crazy and they didnt have enough. i called my local store, ordered them, they honored a 20% off coupon and gave me free shipping. I saved about $275! thanks providence place RH!

That window (and view) is something. I bet you really enjoy doing dishes at that sink.
