The kitchen countertops are installed and the finished carpentry work is in full swing. Designer Carly Miller visited the job site on Monday and snapped some photos of the detailed work.
This picture shows some of the lil’ corbels under the window sill. She had them custom made and will be putting a rod through them to use as hanging space.
The hood is in, but still covered with plastic to protect it, but the finish is stainless steel.
This pictures shows the corbels up close to get a good look at the detail work.
You will see that the Kohler apron sink is in the island …also that the tops are on, but covered with cardboard to prevent scratches. To the far right, you can see that there is no door on the cabinet to hide the rollout trays. This is a trait from Julia Child’s kitchen that Evelyn wanted to mimic. It gives better access to the items she needs during cooking.
The “pantry” cabinet will have the microwave to the left, on a shelf, and the refrigerator to the right, free standing.
Evelyn is in the process of finding the right tile for the backsplash – looking to do 4 x 4’s in a mix of two different whites, and a light gray – but she’s having trouble finding the right colors. So we’ll be exploring Daltile for their options.
