|The first cabinets get raised into place|
Drew got busy on the crown moulding while we worked on the hutch, with its butcher block top. While I love the convenience of granite, I want to use wood butcher block on the hutch and island to warm up the space. IKEA has great butcher block, that's very reasonably priced. And birch is one of the wood varieties available - perfect with our new birch floor!
Next steps - get the island installed, cut the hole for the new exhaust hood and have the granite folks come template for countertops!
