So...I have the basic shell of the kitchen and bath to show in this post. Honestly, I've had such a productive past week that I'd like to post the progress to date. However, in keeping with even a remote concept of a step by step blog, I'm posting these shots from a week and a half ago. I've found in this stage in the project, it's getting harder to pull myself away to take photos when I'm in a hyper-productive flow, particularly when finally having the opportunity to realize my vision for the bath and kitchen.
In the kitchen, I've decided to go with sanded Douglas Fir panels. I saw this used for the walls in a cafe and really thought it would bring a bit more warmth in combination with the galvanized steel back wall. In the bath, rather than using corrugated steel panels, I have instead used a solid color floor and deck stain in a cobalt blue color. I've covered the stained OSB with translucent fiberglas panels (which you'll see in the next post) and am very, very happy with how it's turned out.
