Thanks for your post and dinner sounds wonderful. And yes, my goal was to use every last inch which I think I managed to do. I do still plan on building a moveable island with butcher block top to provide more work area.

You're right...the backsplash does look pretty nice a bit lighter.

I'm crying seeing all the brick in a broken pile. There is so much used brick back east and it is so rare where I live. One of my favourite design elements. Ive used it several times in passive solar homes for a structural element and thermal mass.
It is an inspiring project your undertaking. I like the use of commercial appliances and sinks.
Like every one else looking foreward to seeing the end result.

Awesome! My cooktop is too close to put in a pot filler, but boy was I tempted.

Thanks Bootz. I can give you this piece of advice with a wood beadboard backsplash. Wood loves to expand and contract, especially in a winter like I'm having with such dramatic temperature swings . However you design the wood backsplash, be sure to leave room to account for, or better yet HIDE, the inevitable movement in the wood.

I did not take this into account as much as I should have and now see small gaps in some areas where there previously were none . Oh well, I still love it and am curious to see how the wood reacts come spring time!

The large sink, while I did have to sacrifice on countertop space, is so wonderful. Once I build my kitchen island, I'll have plenty of countertop space and in the meanwhile, I can soak and wash my largest pots and trays with room to spare in the sink.

Too bad about the rarity of brick in your area Master. You could have definitely had whatever came out of my house. I'd love to see how you used old brick in passive solar homes.

Thanks cocobolo. The photo may not do it justice but the beadboard is white as white can be!

It was a double brick wall structural element used to seperate the kitchen and dinning room. It carried floor joists on top and had beam pockets on either end. Art hung on the dinning room side and a wood cook stove backed up aginst the other. Check out the Elmira oval wood cook stove with pie warming shelf and 5 gallon water resivior in black. Nicest kitchen I ever had. Two stoves and two islands. Five people could work in there.

I so wanted a pot filler over my stove for the simple reason that they are totally cool. But my stove is under a window

I guess I could just run the garden hose in ...

That's a great looking kitchen. There seems to be a trend going on here with people building their own cabinets.
