After watching everyone's progress and waiting and waiting for something to show...I finally have my cabinets in.

Island (Imagine my marble hood on that back wall!!):

That hopefully will look like this soon:

They need to paint those dividers in the pantry white...don't like the wood color. There are a few imperfections, but they will fix all that. Our cabinet company, Precision Cabinets, is really good about making everything perfect. Woo hoo!!

Here are some gratuitous pics of bathrooms because I love them so much:

Progress? This is amazing!!! Oh.... your ceiling height, the expanse of the kitchen and island, the gorgeous cabinets (already love the library blue), and your pantry alone is incredible. Then, you show bathrooms too?! Huge smile on this end. What a pleasure to see your home develop. Best, oldbat2be


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Very impressive! Beautiful island color. Your kitchen is huge. I love the buffet. CEF will be very pleased with this eye candy!


 o

RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Beautiful!!! Love all of the cabinet colors! What color did you select for the island and the perimeter cabinets?

RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Wow - looking great! Thanks for sharing and looking for more pictures of your progress.
Love what I am seeing so far!
What is your bathroom tile - it is gorgeous!
That buffet is going to a real winner!

RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

"ohhhhh," she swooned, "those inset cabinets!..."

How pretty pretty pretty!
You could park a coupla busses in that kitchen, girl! What's yer square footage in there? You can hang a chandelier and not worry about anyone bonking their head on it! Is your island a double base cabinet depth (48")? Are you long-armed enough to clean 'round that puppy!?

Sooooo pretty!

 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Wow--that's going to be one humongous (and purty!) kitchen!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

I'm in awe already, this is going to be one gorgeous home! :)


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Island color: BM Delray Gray
Library Color: BM Black Horizon
Bathroom color: BM Cape May Cobblestone

The kitchen is 17'x 18' and the island is 4' x 10' (without overhang). It's about the same size as in my last house.

Thanks for peeking in--it's so great to have all my favorite posting "friends" show up for my open house! Like taking my friends for a progress tour. I feel like I have waited and waited for this day as I admired all of the beautiful homes that others have done. We started demo last May, so it's been a lot of waiting (work for my GC, but wait for me!). We obviously still have a bit to do--three months worth! Which will involve two more moves: one to mom's for 60 days while we finish, then moving in.

Bathrooms:
3" marble hex tile and 2" all white hex tile.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Oh Firsthouse, I've spent many moments drooling of your last kitchen, I'm so excited to see all your choices in your new home. :) Your hardware, lighting, backsplash, counters, floors....... Oh my, I am sure it will all be amazing!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Stunning. Seriously. I'm in awe!!!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Everything looks like it will turn out so well.... the island color is so soothing, as it the library color. I can't believe the wait, though!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Ditto all of the above. Amazing, can't wait to see it finished!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Beautiful. Nice spaces, gorgeous cabs.

RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Firsthouse That is going to be one fabulous house! Can't wait to see that range hood
This was such a tease...


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Wow, your cabinets are gorgeous, I cannot wait to see this one done! And I have a severe case of pantry envy, lol!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

What an amazing kitchen this is going to be! I can't wait to see more. I love the island & color....& the size! Thanks for the bathroom pics too. I love your taste! So beautiful.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Looks amazing! Love that vaulted ceiling in the kitchen, but also looove that hex marble tile in the bathroom!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Beautiful space and great taste!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

The windows are what catch my eye first. It's either a great layout that you came up with or were lucky enough to inherit when buying the place. Jealous!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Absolutely stunning. Will be the inspiration home for so many! Cannot wait to see it all finished. Thanks for sharing the progress with us!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Very very beautiful so far and i'll only get better! I'm pinning your kitchen cabinets since that's the color I'm looking for for my kitchen (about 1/10th the size of yours). The bathrooms are looking very spiffy as well! Good luck with the rest, may it go very quickly.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Love the kitchen--especially the buffet!--but I have to admit, it was the bathroom marble floor tile that had me weak in the knees. Everything looks like it's coming along beautifully.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

firsthouse, off topic ... I asked you another couple of questions about the hardware in your previous remodel on my "Blue Tape Hell" thread, but interest has dwindled there and it has disappeared onto page 3. If you get a chance, can you take a look over there? Was asking a couple of things about where you used each size and where you purchased.

Looks like your new remodel may even surpass your last, if that's even possible!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Wow, you have a great eye for design! Can't wait to see it all come together.

 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Wow. Gorgeous. I'm in complete envy of those ceilings. And the size of the kitchen. And the pantry. And...well, you get the idea!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Love everything you have done so far, a spectacular home. I'm window shopping and am wondering who is the manufacturer of you windows and what type are they?


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Texasgal: Oh the windows, the windows....there is always one heartache that pains over the others, and the windows and doors nearly brought me to my knees. The window and door company could NEVER be on my recommended list. I used Torrance Aluminum (not to be confused with Torrance Steel!), and their manufacturer, Coast Doors, was absolutely the worst and most dishonest company I have ever encountered. They have delayed my project by 8 weeks and cost me over $15,000 with their excuses, delays and unwillingness to be honest about timing. Here in my area, we have many restrictions on the steel windows and even in SoCal, they don't have as many restrictions as we have in NoCal about energy efficiency, sq footage of windows, etc. It's all Title 24 stuff, but because of the limitations, we are forced to use certain companies and stick to certain designs. The side stiles and metal pieces between the windows are slightly larger than what I would have wanted. I like the very thin profile, but couldn't have them. If you live in Texas, hopefully you can deal with other manufacturers....look at this blog for some spectacular steel windows and doors that were custom made:

http://brookegiannetti.typepad.com/velvet_and_linen/2013/02/patina-farm-update-steel-doors-wood-barns-and-stone-walls.html

For what I paid, I almost wish that I had upped the ante a bit for custom and saved myself the heartache. I still paid a king's ransom for these windows and doors--they are quite expensive. But I admit that I love the look of them. Good Luck! Sorry I couldn't recommend my manufacturer and rep!!

This was the look I was going for, but can't have single paned windows:
 photo 83666552a0b0d87e6cf22449516c3c35_zps4cb84832.jpg

You can see my windows have slightly larger stiles and rails, and are double-paned, as per CA regulations:  photo 036_zps35262917.jpg


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Oh, the envy... it burns! It burns!

Just teasing. Sorta. ;) This is going to be one amazing kitchen. I cannot believe you could top your other incredible kitchen, but the proof seems to be right here.

I can't even talk about that pantry. Except to say, it should be mine. ;)

Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Ugh, sorry to hear about the problems with your window company. I did so much research on steel framed windows and ended up just getting custom narrow framed wood windows, single paned, but the town inspector never checked. I don't know how they are with such an extensive remodel, but for my projects, they come in, yack about how many projects are going at the moment, sign off and leave.
Keep the photos coming, I might have to steal some of your design ideas! Sounds like your are feeling better, I hope?


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Sorry about your window company problems. At least they look very nice.

Your kitchen so far is coming along beautifully! I can't wait to see more of it done as you have fabulous taste.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Gigi!!!! Hi fellow A-Towner :)
My contractor is a bit conservative so didn't want to get into a problem abut the Title 24 calculation and windows (yada yada yada)....we played it safe, but I have serious envy of the REAL steel doors and windows. You gotta come over some time and take a look! Would love your honest feedback!!!

I am feeling better and am now officially in remission!!! Yippee. Only been 8 months but still feeling the blessings of health, love of family, and gratitude to be still here and still working. Thank you for asking :) Too kind of you.

P.S. To all with pantry envy...this will be my first walk-in pantry ever and as you know, I won't be in this house forever (unless my DH miraculously gets company funding and we can stay), otherwise we will be moving on in 2 years.....so I'll make the most of it for the time I am here!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Love the bathrooms also, loved your last house and excited to see your progress in this one. Would you mind providing details on the hexagon tile floor and the white subway in that shower? Love, love, love it!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

rtwilliams:
The gray bath has white (really actually off-white) 2" hex tile from Mission Tile $4.99. The other white bathroom has marble 3" hex tile from Mission Tile and it was $15.99. They were both on sale when I bought them...I think 20% off. Both ended up being really really nice. I am grouting the gray bath with a slighty lighter grout and the white bath with a lightly gray grout.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

wowza! drooling over your windows and cabinets. you are really making me wish precision cabinets was in nyc. when is your marble hood going in? can't wait to see!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Ya, dying to see the marble (?) hood. How does such a beast get attached, pray tell? You'll have to take pics of that install...

It's all looking beautiful! Love the chalkboard area.

How many kitchens have you done so far?


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Oh, wow, I'm feeling very jealous that you're about to finish your 2nd kitchen while I'm still waiting for my 1st kitchen remodel! It's gorgeous! Can't wait to see more pics.

Sounds like your life has thrown you for a loop as well, sorry to hear that and I'm glad you're on upward swing.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

firsthouse, also wanted to say that you have previously responded to some cabinetry questions i've had and i love your work, glad to hear that you are feeling better.

absolutely stunning!

Looks fabulous


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Firsthouse,
I would love to swing by and have a look. I should warn you though, I might burst into tears when I see your steel framed windows. I should have held out for them, as the custom wood was only about 1-2k less. I've activated my email, let me know a good time/day for you. I'm free pretty much any time. I'm excited to see it first hand!
Gigi

RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Yessssss!!!!!!

Sooooooo Gorgeous!!

Where have I been? Marble Hood? What? Really?

 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Firsthouse, thank you so much for your lengthy reply regarding windows. I could never live in Calif. with their nanny state mentality and state taxes. So sorry to hear about your huge window problems and having to go with the larger frames. I feel your pain. Since you went with an aluminum frame company, I'm assuming your window frames are aluminum, is this correct? My struggle is similar to yours. I like the architectural look in windows, but the aluminum window borders will be 2" wide like yours and my preference is 1" like the single pane aluminum I now have. I haven't checked out steel framed windows for residential settings yet. My home is a modest patio so cost is a factor. Fortunately, I will be able to get a 72" w x 76" h single pane aluminum frame picture window on either side of my fireplace. I don't want to hijack your thread so if anyone has info about steel windows, my personal GW email is available and would be appreciated.

re:i finally have progress--cabinets! UPDATE: marble counte

Marble island counter was installed today! They installed fairly late in the day but I had to run back and see the finished product after the installers left. I seriously LOVE marble. I don't care if it etches and if it stains, but I think I am never going back to another counter material. They haven't cleaned it up yet and the corner are still taped for protection, but it is a lovely piece of stone.

From slabs to actually installed, I really love marble:

Mock up of the marble hood:
My contractor did a working mock up of the marble hood. The plywood is where the marble will be once it is finished. There's a steel cage supporting it underneath and various engineering supports through the ceiling and in the wall.

Here's the slab for the face of it:

Arabesque tile in laundry room with Carerra:
 photo DSC01298_zps930f39bc.jpg

Completely giddy to see it all finally coming together....this will have to carry me through the next 90 days because I still need motivation to do two moves: one to my mom's until house done (our rental is getting torn down), and then into the house at the end of June. We'll be living out of suitcases for 60 days. I know you all have lived through "stuff" with your remodels, so you can feel my pain.

I had a GW fun day last week: Gigi came to visit me and see the house in person. It was so fun to meet up with a fellow GWer!!! It's like meeting your soul sister when you meet another TKO person :)


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

OMG!!! You're countertops are gorgeous!!! You're home is going to be beautiful!!! What kind of marble is that?


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Love all of your choices...thank you very much for sharing progress of your beautiful home. A perfect illustration of how a kitchen is more than cabinets, counters, and appliances - the architectural proportions and details are just wonderful.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

The counters look so beautiful with your grey island. The tile choices in the bath are stellar as well.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

So happy for you. What gorgeous marble. When I go to the slab yards, I don't see anything as thick as that. Did you buy slabs that thick or do they piece it together? I also want your laundry room, as well! How many laundry rooms have marble in them? I'm thinking not many! I cannot wait to see your hood. It will be one heck of a focal point! Good luck w/ your moves.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Wow. This is so unbelievably gorgeous! The space, the cabinets, the counters! I can't wait to see the hood!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

The marble counters are gorgeous! I also love your cabinets so much and can't wait to see what hardware you chose. Your island is a perfect shade of gray with your counters. I can't wait to see more of the kitchen completed including the grouting of that beautiful backsplash!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Well, what can you say...beyond gorgeous!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

I've been waiting for this thread to pop back up. How lovely. Your counters must be pieced, to have such an edge ... but please tell me they're solid. I'd love to sw, oon over that!

I love that window picture you posted. I, too, would love that look. I also, on my 1976 ranch, wanted casement windows to give it some height. Unfortunately, in 2006 I didn't know what casement windows were, and was rushed into giant windows were they're 3 panes, and the two outside ones slide right or left. Hate 'em.

Kitchen window, too, which is too small to open more than 3" on either side. When I can afford my soapstone counters and to lower the window to counter height, it is GOING and I'll get something with the steel/aluminum frames.

It is in my plan to swap my windows out for something I want now that I know what that is. I state that here for all the world to see and hold me to. Make sense?

I've been looking for an industrial window to reuse as my future shower door. I might just make it out of a French door enameled black, but I'll figure something out.

Could it be that a 1" rail or stile isn't strong enough to hold what you want? I can't imagine after that Brook Ginaitti photo. Love that!

Anyway, I'm rambling about windows. Just wanted to say I'm still in love with your colors, too!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Amazing! :)


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

wow wow wow, just wow. gorgeous all around. please post a pic as soon as that marble hood is installed as i am dying with anticipation!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Oh honey, your selections are stunning. Well done!!!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

I'd like to see some pics of the marble hood BEING installed. What a feat that will be! It is very beautiful stone for sure.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Thanks everyone for admiring the marble--I know how many people love it and I too appreciate the beauty of it, but just have never been able to pull the trigger on actually purchasing it.

The island and counters are all Calacatta Supremo from Pietra Fina in Hayward, CA. The slabs are not 3" solid. They have 3" (waterfalled when possible) mitered edges. The island slab was the most perfect piece but it was 3" shy of the original island size I wanted. To laminate the edges and match everything up, they had to cut the overhang back to 15". I bought slabs with large cracks at 40% off for the other counters and the sides of the hood to try and keep costs down. It meant that I had to be happy with how they placed all of the templates on the cracked slabs. Some people may notice that the veins are not running exactly perfectly through the whole kitchen since I had to turn a few of the cracked slabs to fit pieces in. But, for the face of the hood, I purchased another non-defective slab. That should be installed in another 3 weeks...can't wait for that. I think it's a bit of a design risk since it's so heavy and will be such a standout in the kitchen. I am hoping that the focal point will be a positive, not a negative....still a bit nervous about it.

CEF: I share your fixation with the steel windows. Ever since I saw my first window with the black metal, I was certain that my next house would have it. When we ran into a problem with the style vs CA regulations, I practically had a fit because the entire premise of the house was supposed to be designed around the black/white theme with steel windows. I pretty much had to lop off a ton of beautiful design details to afford these windows and keep this one design feature. I am hoping the trade off will be worth it in the end. I liked your "Steel Window Manifesto" that you declared to the world/GW....I can see us holding you to it now!

Deedles: Never fear, the entire install process will be photographed (if they let me be in the room). When they brought in the island slab, I think I made them nervous, so my contractor and I stepped out while they worked. However, I really do want to see that marble hood go in!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Absolutely beautiful. I can't imagine have a kitchen with so much space. Wow!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

firsthouse, how is your reno coming along? can't wait to see that hood!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

They pulled down the mockup and the steel cage was finished yesterday. I saw it on the driveway today and am anxious to see the rest of it it up. We ended up doing the wood flooring and have delayed everything around that. A few bathroom progress pics but not much else. Wish I had more to report!

I do have this little nugget...this slab of Zebrino Marble:
 photo Zebrinopic1_zpsb2a7fcfd.jpg

Got turned into this powder room vanity which will have a vessel sink, wall mounted faucet and mirror behind the spout/handle:
 photo photo_zps99b16cab.jpg
The swatch is one of the colors I had originally looked at but I have since decided against--too strong of a color. I don't want to take away from the aggressive counter design.

 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Love the library built ins! Fabulous color and design. And that Zebrino White-WOW.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

That marble is to die for! Everything looks like it's coming along beautifully. I, too, can't wait to see the hood finals. I know it's going to be spectacular.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Yes, when is the hood going up?


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Firsthouse, are those slab pieces around your shower? That looks awesome!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Two more weeks on the hood. We decided to wait until the flooring is all done and various other stone pieces have been put in. I ask my contractor every other day "When are we going to put up the hood?"..... I think he's holding his breath too about this because the teamwork between the fabrication and engineering teams has been fairly extensive. It's all worked out but we hope it all goes without any problems.

Jelly: Yes those are pieces of Caldia Marble that frame the shower (cut from the same slab as the counter).

Here's a pic of my wildly "Wearstler-inspired" master shower. I told Gigi from GW that it's very "aggressive design" and she agreed. These are slabs of another type of marble that I put on the ceiling and the walls of the shower. More slabs on the tub, the counter, the walls near the tub.

Risky design element that I am trying to pull off:

RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

M, I agreed that it was going to be FABULOUS!
Also, you didn't post the money shot, so I will. What did you end up using for the master bath floor? Can't wait to come by and see the progress.

I'm also looking forward to seeing the progress on your beautiful rooms, especially that drop-dead gorgeous kitchen!

 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Firsthouse, I hope all is going well with the move. Looking forward to your inspiration photos and updates of your remodel when you have time. I love what you're putting together.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Moving, how exciting! Been wondering where you have been!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

I love how your kitchen is coming along! I LOVE the marble counters! I can't wait to see finished pictures. Thank you for sharing.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

All the thought and planning you have put into these beautiful rooms is an inspiration to those of us still stumbling along.
Even if they are not the ones you wanted, the windows are striking and they look perfect in your rooms.
Can't wait to see the finished room in some magazine or featured on Houzz.


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

thanks for inspiring us, first_housemp, I have enjoyed your other two remodels, and I am loving this one so far as well.

I see what your frustration is with the windows, but most people would not see it as a problem at all. I love the look you are going for, just be patient, when it is all done up, it will be spectacular!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

I keep checking back for more photos. So looking forward to your updates and most of all - PHOTOS! I am addicted!!


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

I was thinking about your questions about chalkboard paint and wondering whether you thought about installing a real chalkboard?


 o
RE: OMG, I Finally have progress--cabinets!

Update? I hope you've found some fun amidst the stresses. In the long run you will have created another amazing home.
