Today we went over to 40 M and took some pictures of the progress this week. J outlined the bathroom for us; giving us a better idea where the vanity will fit as well as where we will frame the window.
He also found a difference in the floor/ceiling height in the kitchen so he is working to rectify that in order to have a better fit for our cabinets.
Another joist was installed over the fireplace and the sheathing was all secured into place including sheathing on the ocean side of the house.
The three windows on the ocean side of the master are also all framed out and ready to go. It will be a beautiful master bedroom.
We did have some trouble with the plans for the kitchen. The original design posted here is lovely but R does not like the proximity of the oven and fridge. We are trying to work with the designer to come up with some other options. After spending a couple of hours over at 40 M today I'm thinking that perhaps we should re think the peninsula. While the peninsula gives us more cabinet space and counter top it impacts the open feel that we are looking for in the home. What do you all think? Is the counter top/cabinet space worth losing some of that open feel? I'm just not sure.
