Here are drawings of what we are shooting for.
We have changed the plan a bit as we went along.
The floor will be grey rather than yellow.
I couldn’t find anyone to make the sink for a price I liked, so I bought an off the shelf concave front apron sink and then build a countertop from plywood and putty and epopxy. Not sure how long it will last, but I’ll just build a new one when I have too. This changed some other things too which I’ll describe in subsequent posts.
The sink is higher than the countertops so we don’t have to stoop to touch the bottom.
The cabinet beside the fridge holds an elevated dishwasher so we don’t have to stoop to reach the dishes.
As I’ll show in the next post, those are both in place and are very comfortable.
We know nothing about color except we know we like it. So we hired a kitchen designer with an eye for color to color the thing after I presented the drawings and some pictures of artwork we liked. She used elm, maple, and aspen as the non-painted woods. Then we learned that we couldn’t find elm easily around here, so the elm will likely now be ash.
