« Part 2: Large Islands Part 3 of Island series no next part

The islands were stained, glazed and lacquered. Then we loaded them both into the truck for delivery. It rained all the way to the job site but quit long enough for us to get them unloaded. It took about 8 guys to get them into the house and set in place.



After setting in place I attached 4 corbels, (4 still in shop getting outlets put in them) and installed the 2 spice racks.



Karson, you can now see how huge this main kitchen is. The whole room is about 30’ X 30’ with a huge stone fireplace in the dining area. In the second picture you can see 2 doorways. The one with the gray blankets goes into a hallway and the other into a working kitchen. You can also see where the range and the hood will go along with the rest of the cabinets in this kitchen.

I have started to build the curved doors and the molding for the doors. When I get these completed I will show them and hopefully get some pictures of the completed island in the next 2 weeks. The granite was templated last Monday so the granite may be installed by the time I get the doors there and install them.

About the size of my shop. I hope they plan on having lots of company.

A fantastic creation.
