New year new kitchen

Okay so the new kitchen won’t be totally finished by the new year but it is finally functional.
A couple of days ago the last major step in our temporary complete kitchen was made and we now have an operational gas cooktop.

So while there is still a huge to do list the kitchen is functional and I’m able to store most of our kitchen things in the same room.

I can’t say how amazing it feels to be able to make a coffee in one room instead of having to gather items from three separate rooms. It’s a simple pleasure but a greatly appreciated one.

Our peninsula with temporary benchtops and blue protective coating still on our drawers (I’m not taking that off until the permanent benches are in).

It’s a little but too much fun to make the downdraft pop out of the bench, especially because most people we know have never seen one before.
I do think that it was absolutely worth the money to avoid having a bulky overhead extractor that would have further closed in our tiny room, it’s provided a much cleaner line than I’d even imagined.

Now we are on to making the cabinets
for our pullout pantry. I am really looking forward to having our food out of the lounge room.

Hope everyone else is enjoying their holidays whether they are renovating, holidaying or having to work.
