Here are a few photos I took tonight of our island in progress. Nick called the counter top company and confirmed we can have a least a 16" overhang for the bar area. I think we will stick to a 12-13 overhang so the island does not get too big. Next we need to get the counters ordered and the electrician to install the microwave oven and over head lighting. However lighting is still the final big design choice we need to make.
Big thank you to my dad who helped us measure cut and well make the entire island. We would still be figuring out how to finish the sides without you.
You can also see the great bar stools we got from the Pottery Barn Outlet, and at $28 each they were a steal! (We have been using some packing styrofoam as a mock up counter).
