Surprisingly enough (and much to my not-so-secret delight), I'm actually rather in love with my Drafting course. We'll see if I feel the same by the end of this week, at the completion of the approximately 20 hours of homework I've got to attend to between now and next Saturday, which is when the course wraps up. One of the assignments is a kitchen plan and elevations, with I thought I'd throw out to the world to:
a) share what I've been up to this weekend,
b) see if what is in my head translates on paper to decent design, and
c) ask whether you'd live here, if it were a real kitchen?
When taking a peek at the elevation (I'm only sharing one because it's the only one that's completed, but there's more to come later), bear in mind the following, please:
- The wall-mounted upper and base cabinets are intended as solid American Black Walnut in a medium stain
- I've intentionally not put handles on the doors of the upper cabinets. They will be plain-faced, with grooves on the undersides to act as handles
- The pulls on the lower cabinets/drawers are one-inch stainless steel
- The herringbone backsplash (which extends to the ceiling) and the 2-inch countertop are Carrera marble
- Ignore the dashed lines on the upper cabinets - these are drafting directions which show the shelves inside and the directionality of the doors opening
- This elevation is just one wall of a 10x10 kitchen (in case you're wondering where the stove/fridge/sink is). The other three walls have yet to be drawn!
