The happy family surveying the work completed, they can now relax and enjoy their home.
The island was stained a rich blend of stains on birch to give it depth and personality and coexist with the rough-hewn beams and floors. To the right of the stove features a pull out to house oils/vinegars and baking sheets, left of the stove houses all the spices and cooking utensils allowing the soapstone counter to be clutter free.

At first the lower than counter height windows posed a big problem as we could not run the counter in an L-shape for maximum prep space. However, the solution we came up with, to drop the counter to the window height, has now become a unique, interesting and functional feature – guests and kids alike love hanging out there, plus when you first walk into this kitchen your eye immediately goes to those picture windows framing their awesome view and that was the point all along!

    Thank you Henhouse, we absolutely love love our kitchen and it was an extreme pleasure working with all of you. The kitchen is functional, beautiful and exactly what we wanted. My husband has lived up to his promise of cooking some meals, I adore cooking in it, and I am so proud to show it off to friends who oohhh and ahhh. Your customer service is the best we have ever had, and although we don't expect to need another kitchen in the near future, we will be back for custom furniture and other beautiful things. Thank you thank you for your well made cabinets, guidance, attention to detail, and general loveliness!
