Interior view of kitchen with custom pot rack

This early 1900's stone and brick house had a cramped kitchen and a rear entrance addition that blocked views to the yard. We were asked to enlarge the kitchen, add an area for a breakfast table and improve the entry. By demolishing the existing rear entrance, we were able to create a large addition that houses a new mudroom, kitchen and breakfast room. The addition is long and narrow to preserve several mature Japanese maples, visible through the breakfast room bay. The addition mimics the roof lines of the house, but is clad in wood shingles, siding and a coated copper roof to distinguish it from the main house and recall the family’s Maine coast cabin. A clerestory above the cooking area provides ample light throughout the year, and provides passive cooling. Windows and doors open the large interior volume to the maple, the outdoor garden and patio. Photos: Jeffrey Totaro

Are these butcher block counters on the end? If so, are they durable?

Yes, these are hardwood butcher block, and they're quite durable--of course they'll develop a patina of use the more you use them as cutting surfaces.

Love that Oyster Bay paint color! Diyher, the floor is real slate, rather than porcelain, but the porcelain would be a good choice too.

the salvageable kitchen cabinets coming out of our kitchen, I spray painted Oyster Bay and are going into our basement for my framing studio :) Assuming the real slate is thicker than the porcelain that looks like slate?

The floor is Brazilian Multicolor slate, which is very dense slate and does not flake.

could you please share the seller of the dining chairs?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A faceted window seat adds sitting room and storage to the dining area. Hinged doors provide access to the bench's cargo space.

This is worthy of the idea book because it shows an option for seats in the kitchen, with NO appliances on top of the island, and since my design is a widened kitchen, maybe my marble bake area prep becomes a different level in the kitchen. This image is just sharing a concept more than anything.
