Finished Kitchen: FINALLY!!! (lots of pictures)
First, I have to thank GW for the wonderful advice, encouragement and guidance you gave me during my year-long journey. It was exactly 12 months ago that I thankfully first discovered this site and was saved from my own naivete.
A little background about my house and the renovation project. I have lived 11 years in a 1906 rowhouse in Washington, DC. I did some minor cosmetic renovations when I first moved in but recently decided to convert the basement into an apartment. That started a massive renovation project that included the basement, kitchen, adding a bathroom to the master bedroom, adding A/C, etc. It was very rocky in the beginning, but slowly the dust and debris stopped bothering me and I learned how to interact with my contractor. So, fast forward 12 months and I have a house that I absolutely love!

Thank you everyone for your help. I'm picking up my parents, sister and brother-in-law from the airport today and can't wait to enjoy my new kitchen with my family.
