In this open floor plan the kitchen area is between the two steel columns on the right. The sink will be under the window (to the right of the ladder). The kitchen is a galley style layout with the sink, dishwasher, refrigerator, pantry, base and wall cabinets on the exterior wall on one side, the island on the other. The island will have base cabinets. Pro-style gas range and overhanging counter creating seating for four.
On the below photo you’ll see two rows of horizontal blocking on the exterior wall. The purpose of the blocking is to provide solid wood for cabinet attachment. A bulkhead over the island will house lights and high performance exhaust hood.
