So…. another layout edit. We are dumping the built in peninsula and going for a counter height narrow pub table type thing – with 2 bar stools. Something like this. Greaaaaaaat – another item to scour the world to find dirt cheap. Whoopee.
This will save us money on soapstone as that extra square footage would have added another whole slab to the order. Unfortunately, those 2 IKEA cabinets can’t be returned, but we can use them easily in the dorm room for hanging storage. I may end up getting a smaller desk as well – we’ll see if that is necessary.
This will leave us with our original eat-in-kitchen function intact, but still give me a visual break for as long as I keep my office in the kitchen. And seating for that morning bowl of cereal.
In other news, my back door IS 30 inches wide. And my current door shade is very, very long. If you know why I’m mentioning this, then you know that I am going to say YES to my sister-in-law’s awesome idea if she’s still offering. Details to follow…
