 Thanks B.  I agree, ideally.  We'll probably rinse dishes and stick them in the dishwasher pretty quickly.  The counters on both sides of the stove are 18" and the island behind will give enough space for cooking and prep, I hope.I'll think about the glass cabinets there.  Not sure what'd we'd store though that we'd want visible.  Interesting thought on the DW.  I might ask about that.  I'd probably prefer panels, but I don't care much and they are pricy.  We are having...
Yes for the jacket. The tie is from Saks ~2008.  Shirt is Luxire of Monti fabric, I believe the first custom shirt they ever made.  Bag is standard issue Irish schoolboy from 1979 (belonged to a friend who got it when he was 5).  And square is a fabric remnant with edges I sewed by hand years ago:  
I tried to find it for over a year, but Formosa had it and still does afaik. A while back, David Lane posted that he'd found it under a different label, and I did recently.
I'll vouch for any of the Draper's airy hopsacks.  Been loving this one  
Been enjoying this NMWA jacket.  Love the fabric and cut.  I think I didn't pick that knit tie for this thread, but I've been wearing it a lot.    
Just got the plans for the kitchen cabinets and would appreciate any thoughts anyone might have.  A few things are missing from the drawing.  The fridge will go on the top right.  Sink is in the cabinet between the dishwasher on top left, and the stove.  And french doors will be on the left wall.      I'm wondering if the island should be shorter.  It's 6' x 31".  Wondering if we should go down to 5' or 5'6".  The HD guy (who's been great), says the adv. of 6' is that...
 I'd call those stone. Fwiw, imo, putty would be darker, almost khaki, and pewter would be even darker with much more gray.  I could see it being called oyster though.  To me, stone is an off-white with a gray cast, while cream is off-white with a yellow cast.  But maybe I'm alone in that.  
Here's a wider shot of the back, showing the living room windows that the doors will match:     We're thinking of putting a glass roof to cover the space between the three walls.  Someday.
Thought I'd post some pics of the progress on the kitchen. Last time I posted the demolition of a wall that held small pipes for gas lamps and large pipes for a chimney and stove.  Here's a pic of the other side of that wall.  THey've reframed the doorway to make it wider, and patched the floor where the fireplace was.      The floor joists under the fireplace had been cut to accomodate bricks and a metal plate, so they reinforced those:    And since the wall that...
When I first heard of wood-look tile, I didn't like the idea.  But seeing them at tile stores, I like them, especially for outdoor use.  Took this pic of a display with a pic of it used as a pool deck.         The tile looked better irl than in the pic, and it had a texture that seemed like it wouldn't be slippery when wet. If I ever get to move back to somewhere warm, I'd consider it for a pool deck.
