We made a quick trip into Edmonton yesterday to look at kitchen appliances.
This is what we like for now:
This flat-top stove: (note the down-draft vent.Can't work around that since the stove is built into the island, and I don't want one of those large hooded vents)
Wall mounted oven:
and of course the dishwasher with the must-have concealed buttons:
We're using this granite for the countertops.It's called "Black Galaxy", and is black with some gold flecks/swirls, even though it looks brown in the pic:
It's starting to come together nicely.
And here's a pic of the house. I zipped over there this evening and took this. They're preparing the outside for the stucco, and the doors will be painted at the end...
