The main rectangle is about 26 x 28 (about a 2 car garage). The space is complicated by all of the openings into other areas.

I'm sorry, I'm not going to be much help with flooring information. It's been a while since we completed this job, and the job binders are in storage. I remember that it wasn't an engineered floor, however; we had the (unfinished) wood boards installed, and then we had it sanded and stained in place.

Hi Heather - I have this bizarre hobby of name that faucet, sink etc... a little puzzle to do while I'm on hold on the phone or just need a break from quickbooks. And then of course I get to see some great projects like yours that I otherwise might not see. BTW, we just did a project that had al US-made lighting fixtures. :) Rhoda

Hi Sarah123,
The main kitchen sink is from Masterpiece Sinks. They have quite a few choices in apron designs, and they also have a choice of finishes, from Nickel Silver to Penny Copper to Bright Copper. I also like the fact that their finishes are not the live patinas that other companies do, but instead are 10-year guaranteed finishes.

HI Renee,
These particular lights are no longer available, but we think you'll find a similar look if you look at island pendants (sometimes called "bar" fixtures) by Minka Lavery.
See the attached image--and check out www.lightinguniverse.com/island-lighting

HI Nedwards.

These beautiful, high-quality kitchen cabinets were built by a cabinet company in Pennsylvania called "Christiana Cabinetry" per my specifications and were shipped to Southern California for the install. The door styles and finish colors are proprietary to Christiana, so if you wanted to match them exactly, your best bet would be to contact the company directly and get the name of your local distributor. If you are not in the United States (which I infer from your spelling of the word "colour"), then print out a copy of the above photo to show your cabinet & finish guys, and tell them the following:
1. Perimeter: Framed, beaded inset construction, raised panel door with heavy applied molding (see "Villa" door on company website), maple paintgrade specie, finish to be ivory white paint (or pigmented varnish) with brown glaze, mostly removed, neat hang-up in the grooves of the moldings.
2 . Island: Frameless, full-overlay cabinets (1/16th reveals), classic slant-raise door style, Alder specie, walnut brown stain with black glaze, weathered & worn edges.

Good luck with your project.

Sorry it's taken so long to answer your question about the countertops. Neither surface in this kitchen is granite; the islands are Jerusalem Limestone, and the perimeter counters are Emporador Dark Marble, Polished, with a 2.25" double ogee edge detail. They both look beautiful, it's true, but as I've mentioned in other replies on this subject, please talk to your stone fabricators about the challenges of marble countertops before deciding on surfaces such as these.

This large kitchen is located literally at the center of a sprawling California home--and in this 25' x 25' area alone, there are 6 separate doors or openings leading out of the space. In this photo you can see 2 of them: the arched opening to the garage hallway is visible at the back left corner. Just to the left of that arch is an entrance to the walk-in pantry. Continuing on, at the left of the range area (but not visible in the photo) is the main entrance to the kitchen, then an arched opening into a butler's pantry, an arched opening to an eating nook, and an arched opening to the family room (off to the right in the above photo). With all these openings, we had limited wall room, and we decided to bring the main activity of the kitchen out in the center of the room and onto the 2 islands. Both are about 8' long by 4' wide, with the first, rectangular island designated as the "work" island, and the second arched & decorated island designated as the "entertaining" island.

Hi Shelly, sorry for the delay in answering your questions. Both islands are about 48 x 96, with the work island (on the left) set up as a true rectangle with full cabinets throughout. The serving island (on the right) is also a baking island (where the homeowner can make cookies with her grandchildren), and it has a wedge-shaped counter pulled out over the far right side for seating. The working cabinets on the kitchen side include a mixer lift, pull-out storage for baking pans, and a concealed GFI outlet.

Island on the right - if you leave the Northwest end of our island "open" like this one (instead of as a cabinet underneath), it might open up the edge near the fridge and take out the bulge of stools at the middle of the island near the pantry.
