We spoke with Jeff about what kind of doors we wanted. Our choices were between traditional panel solid pine and flat-faced birch veneer. We decided to go with the pine. We also got a chance to see the recently picked-up maple flooring that will be used throughout the house.
Jeff buys the left-over short pieces which gives the floors a really neat pattern. You can see an example of it in Latitude38′s Rockland house. We also got to see the locally-sourced slate that they are going to put in the bathrooms.
Finally, Jeff asked what style of kitchen cabinets we wanted. This weekend we’re visiting IKEA to choose. The counter will be butcher block and the island will be concrete. We plan on choosing different style cabinets for under the island and under the kitchen counter to compliment their respective surfaces. We really liked what Latitude38 did with the Rockland kitchen, but we’re not entirely sure if the same would work as well in this house.
