I have had a few requests to go into further detail on how I extended our kitchen island.
Well we started out with a very small island it was standard depth cabinets and three doors wide. I wanted it to house our microwave so I eventually came up with a plan to add an open cabinet to the end of the island. We need a microwave but I didn't want to see it. I made it the same width of the existing island and simply screwed the box to the end of the island.
We should be getting our grass in the next two weeks or so I've been told. It will be so nice to have grass. The builder paved our driveway a couple of days ago , so things are moving forward. They will also give us one tree , the city will give us at least one tree hopefully two and there will be landscaping that the builder will also do. I don't know what kind of plants we will end up with , it will be a surprise. Some builders here don't pave or do landscaping , I am so glad our does. It is kind of like waiting for a surprise gift to arrive. Fencing will be on the top of the list for this year, and hopefully planting a couple of larger trees in the backyard. , we need a space for those two dogs to run and play.
