The counter is a total of 15" wide, so it overhangs between 9" and 10". It's been many years, but it's probably self-supporting.

They put a piece of countertop over the window sill. It was handled by the countertop fabricator.

The sink is located on the other side of the pass-through, mostly because that sink was existing in that location (the pass-through used to be a window to the back yard).

This is great. I was hoping that was the case. That way you can still interact with your guests even if you need to do a little clean up!

I'd love to tell you the color but unfortunately we don't have the records, and the client sold the house many years ago... sorry.

Recommendations to close the passthru - This is exactly what I have at home, but we would like to close the passthru with glass, that way the kitchen will not be too dark and the dining room will not look too small. Any ideas of cool, modern, unique windows/glass?

I think you should consult a designer for that type of question, as it's not really a question about this photograph. Good luck to you!

This was a load-bearing wall, but in our case there was already a window in this location. What was an exterior wall became an interior wall. There is a header above the opening that was already there. But if you're opening up a wall that happens to be load-bearing, your engineer can design you a header that will support the loads. You should really consult a structural engineer or a contractor who can design this per the prescriptive beam sizing in the building code.

We have a 2nd floor and the foundation does not support it and that's why it's so expensive- have to add additional foundation. Two architects looked at it. My neighbors who have the same structure discovered that when they opened the kitchen to their den, the 2nd floor was sagging!!! However, because originally they had a window type of opening from a prior owner's remodeling, all they had to do was to place the beam above. The prior owner had placed a reinforced foundation.
I think your suggestion of adding openings between the 2x4 is great. And I think if you do it longer than just at window height, it would definitely add artistic look and get the illusion of looking right through to the den. The opening would actually be about 13" wide because since the 2x4 are 16" apart, you would loose space on both sides for the dry wall

Brilliant! Lighting & Design
I believe you'll find the match is the Trilo 7 fixture by BESA Lighting. What is pictured above uses their frost glass, with the larger of two canopy options in satin nickel. http://www.besalighting.com/productpage_class-2_category-7_family-119_decor-45_config-1_finish-12.php

We specified to match existing, which this does. I'm guessing the contractor got it at Victoriana in San Francisco.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Don't Pass Up the Kitchen Pass-Through
A simple pass-through adds a functional dimension and architectural interest to what otherwise would have been a big, blank wall, and enhances seating space to boot.

passthrough - would probably prefer recessed can lights over pendants in such a small opening. I like how the granite countertop extends past the wall slightly. also like the white moulding around the cutout.
