Kitchen & Great Room

17 Oct

Entering the kitchen from the dining room.

On with the tour! For those of you interested in building an Adair house, upgrades in these photos include the gas fireplace, can lights on either side of the fireplace, Livingstone counter tops, the stainless appliances, and the gas range. The cabinets and the flooring are both hickory. We love all the variegation on the cabinets. If we were to build this house again, we’d add more can lights to the great room and some type of light in the closet under the stairs (which is DEEP and DARK). The subway tile backsplash in the kitchen and the fireplace tile and wood mantle were not done by Adair.



Standing in front of the under-stairs closet looking into the kitchen.

Looking into the kitchen from the sliding glass doors. The dining room is in the back left part of the frame. The amount of cabinet space and the large pantry are fantastic.


Standing between the sink and stove looking towards hall, closet and fridge (pantry on the right). We especially love the large island. When we have had parties in the house, we have easily had 10 people standing around eating and drinking, cooking, and just hanging out and it feels roomy and comfortable. We originally thought about extending the counter to make bar seating, but we’re  glad we didn’t because we would have lost easy access to the cabinets on the back side of the island. The kitchen eating area is close enough to the island to make people feel like they are truly in the kitchen area when they are seated there.


Same spot, but looking into the great room.

Looking into the great room from in front of the sliding glass doors. We added the gas fireplace and 2 can lights to the sides of the fireplace. Very glad we made that change as there would be no other built-in lighting in the room. If we built this house again, we’d add more recessed lighting to the other corners. The hall on the right leads to the garage, laundry and bathroom.

    I really love those green chairs – are they kid friendly? Where did you get them?

      We got those at Cost Plus World Market. Very kid-friendly, but very kitten claw unfriendly.
