New window in kitchen

Worked some more on the kitchen this weekend. We removed the sink, dishwasher and the last of the old cabinets and installed a new window. This one is twice the size of the old and is double paned glass with panels on each end that swing open. It should brighten things up in here. The box in the ceiling is part of the new exhaust hood.
The old one:


The new one, it goes all the way to the blue tape on the right in the above picture, where the end of the cabinets and countertops will be:


We are putting in all new appliances and cabinets. We test fit some of the cabinets last week. They are Ikea, and mostly pull out drawers rather than doors and shelves. Bobbie picked a bright glossy white with stainless handles. Goes with the stainless appliances, new wide double convection electric ovens and microwave:


There will be a center island with gas cooktop, we’re planning on all stainless – the cabinets as well as the top. We’ve got a nice stainless and glass exhaust hood that will go above the cooktop.

It's a lot of working remodeling a kitchen. You use the word, "we". How many are there in you work crew?

Hi Joe, good to see you hard at work. I was thinking of you this week because it was two years ago this week that I visited Vegas. Hope you are doing well.

The 'We' is two, my wife and I. I rope the neighbor in when there is something heavy, like lifting up that big window or putting up the drywall on the ceiling.

Lived through so many remodels.... my x was a architect/builder so we always fixed up every house we lived in and then sold it. Gets to be a huge pain.
I love what your doing in the kitchen Window is Fabulous !

cheers, parsnip
