    So this is what I've been doing the past four weeks.  This is the teardown, you can still see part of the old cabinets on the right.


    The subfloor needed to be repaired.  This is laminate flooring from Lowe's.  10mm thick.


    The hood and some cabinets from Ikea are up.  I had to tear out the wall to install bracing for the hood and repair the soffit.


    Coved edge butcher block counter top from Michigan Maple.  This is Heidi's baking and pastry side.


    This is my side, the saucier side,  ;)  Pun intended.


    This is an Ikea kitchen cart I bought for $20 at a garage sale.  I put a new butcher block countertop on it.  This is my rough and tumble workspace.


    The refrigerator.  We ordered a Frigidaire fridge only and a not quite so matching freezer which we put in the pantry.  The baker's countertop is attached to yet another Ikea cabinet.


    Ikea cabinet with extended butcher block countertop.  I built the book case to fit.


    Heidi made a piece of art for the kitchen.


    Testing.  Yes, that counter is sturdy enough for the wine.  :)


    The sink, almost forgot the sink side.  Another Ikea sink.

    Oh man, that is fabulous! That's what my kitchen wants to be when it grows up.
