Pictures of the kitchen progress

We've spent the last month enjoying the generosity of my awesome parents by staying at their house while we work on the kitchen.  Everything seems to just be taking a little longer than expected... however, we are making good progress and we're planning on getting back home really soon.  Look how much we've Benson has done!!!

My beautiful granite tile countertop.

Our current thought for the backsplash along side my "new to me" sink.  My sister kept this one in her garage for almost a year because she loved it.  They got a new one that was the same except for being undermount.  I don't know if I mentioned it before, but the beautiful granite tiles were thanks to her too.  They were going to use them in their own kitchen, then decided on something else.  I am SOOO lucky! 

The removal of the soffit.  Note the pipes that had to be moved...

..because you'd never know they were there when he got done with the drywall.

Aren't they gorgeous!!  :) 

All new storage.  This was all wasted space before.  The microwave will go straight ahead and the stove goes underneath.  We got a steal of a deal on a floor model stove, we are really excited about it, because we didn't think it would fit into the budget.

So, that's where we are at.  Yet to come are a new window, the backsplash and all the finishing/trim work.  I'm so thrilled with how it is turning out.  Benson is absolutely amazing!  I am constantly amazed at how capable he is with this stuff.  I am one lucky girl!  :)
