The design emphasis is on function, as we love to cook. It was important to have everything handy, but not crowed. The total space is conservative (12' x12'), therefore the efficiency of the layout was very important. The work triangle is perfect.

The island cabinet is 40" x 73", and the granite top is 4'-4" x 6'-4" (there's an 11" overhang, where 3 stools will go).
The light fixture is 26" high and 36" long, the clearance height is 31". My wife has a knack for interior decorating, she selected/found all the fixtures (subject to my approval). I installed all electrical and plumbing fixtures, and appliances.
I posted a couple of bathroom photos in the Small House forum, more photos will follow after we finish the exterior (flatwork, front steps, railings/balustrades, shutters, fencing, grass, etc).

For some reason people don't seen to realize that you do not have to mount this model of oven over the range. We needed the clearance for the pot filler, and for the powerful Vent-a-Hood. Besides, we already had experience with the traffic conflict whenever the oven is over the range.

I love your kitchen and was reading more details to learn how you mounted your microwave to the wall, because that is what I plan to do with mine. You are right no one realizes that the over range type can be mounted on any wall you like. Great idea now I know what type of microwave to buy and no need to have a special cabinet or shelf made for it. Thanks.
