Kitchen island is in!

Late yesterday afternoon, it must have been after 5pm, the kitchen island (2900mmx1000mm) was delivered.

We can only see it through the dirty windows and there's bubblewrap over the benchtop so it's hard to gauge exactly what it looks like.

It isn't exactly what I wanted.. laminate dates the kitchen. We're planning to remove the laminate benchtop and replace it with Caesarstone waterfall edges when we do put in the back wall of kitchen cabinets next year.

Eden Brae consented to only doing minimum cabinetry which we used to get the island done. Creative cooking (using only an electric wok, George Foreman grill, microwave and toaster) will be required to make do without a cooktop and oven until then. Our gorgeous Smeg 70cm oven will be winking at us from the box but we can't install it till we can afford all the cabinetry, benchtop and backsplash along that back wall.

In the island we've put 90cm soft-close servery drawers. We put them to the right of the dishwasher for quick unloading. Cutlery, everyday crockery and cups/mugs will be in those drawers.

I can't wait to scrape scraps from plates at the sink with a bin drawer to the left and the dishwasher to the right. *bliss* No more trails of water and goop on the floor from sink to the bin.

Still no pics.. forgot the camera again this morning. But more good news.. construction is currently 2 weeks ahead of schedule and my SS is try and push it further ahead.

At the moment, if all goes to plan, we may get the keys at the end of next month.
