About the project
Straighten out the island without shifting the plumbing: Check. Replace the desk with a wine fridge: Check. Replace the microwave above the stove with a decorative hood and vent: Check. (We incorporated the microwave in the rebuilt island.) Coordinate with the vendors who were already hired to replace the counters, backsplash, and floor: Check. And make it all look seamless and oh-so modern: Check!
