The guest cottage is moving along...the carpenters came to install the kitchen cabinets and countertop today. The cabinets are stock cabinets from Lowe's, and the countertop is a stock laminate. Nothing custom, but I'm still really pleased with how it came out.
The brown strips on the floor are the wood laminate that's going to be in the kitchen and living area. We decided on stainless-steel-look for the appliances and for the sink, which isn't cut into the counterop yet.
Below is a view from the kitchen out toward the French doors in the living area. The box you see is the vanity for the bathroom.
A view of the guest cottage from the outside. I wanted a 'before' picture to remind us what it looked like before everything was done and we landscape it. (That gray around the French doors will be painted brown at some point, and a gable window will be installed above the doors to ventilate the attic.)
We're excited at the prospect of having it done, and not having workmen coming and going all the time. The flooring is supposed to get done early next week, and we're told the whole thing might be done by the end of next week. I'll be happy if it's done the following week.
We still have to furnish it but we should be ready for visitors by the end of May.
