I've been busy the last couple of weeks. I've designed the kitchen cabinets as you see here in the images from the model. I'm still working on a way to load the model on my blog so that you all can download some free software and take a tour of the Revere Home. I had three different cabinet shops price out the cabinets you see here. The Kraftmaid Venicia line was the most expensive - so I opted to go with a custom cabinet maker. Through the same cabinet maker I've gotten a great deal on baltic birch plywood for the walls. I was torn between going with mahogany or birch and the thousand dollars I saved by switching to birch made the decision easy.
I am going to go with walnut wood on the cabinetry which should give a nice contrast to the cork flooring and birch walls. I've picked most of the lighting in the last couple of weeks along with the plumbing fixtures. So far I am on budget (which my dad thinks is to high - he calls it my 1100 sq.ft. million dollar home).
Here is a view of the new bathroom in its preliminary stage. By moving the ductwork I was able to simplify the chase and use it to help frame the space of the vanity. The model should be making significant progress in the next few days so I will try to upload some more images asap. I'll upload some pictures from this weekend - I will have the framing completely done and I've poured concrete over the new plumbing in the guestbath/utility room.
