Building a breakfast bar/island
I've attached a picture of my kitchen (as you are standing in the family room looking into the kitchen). I want to build a breakfast bar across the length of the opening (up to the stairs) with the stools on the kitchen side, facing into the family room.
I've been toying with putting in top cabinets as the base and adding a countertop but then I will end up with a "wall" the length of the bar. My second thought is to just add a countertop and prop it with some sort of supports (knotting pine logs?).
I am looking for design and structural suggestions. The countertop will ultimately be granite however it may be something else until I am ready to redo the countertops in the kitchen.
Thanks for your help!
