I designed and detailed entirety of house and did all the finding and ordering of products and finishes and did all painting and caulking and cleanup. My father in law and husband did majority of work, with exception of soapstone masonry install and red silestone counter. Hubs and FIL did all solid surface work and casework install to my directions. :-) They did such an incredible job and did everything how I wanted. We have been moved in since may 2012 after living in efficient apt above garage, 450 sq ft and two kids came during all this plus our dog. Nice to be able to spread out! I look back and have no idea how we did all this with kids! Very top cabinets store our crystal hand me downs and half are empty. They are for things we don't use often. Who says it has to be kitchen stuff? :-) After being in apt, i wanted storage!!! Furniture is on order from Room and Board along with bars stools. :-) table is a loner but works well. We plan to build dining and accent tables soon.
