We chose number 2. We had to reconfigure the whole area and have turned the hutches to the side so they'll work.
Another issue that came up is the range hood. Our ducting above the range hood has to angle slightly into the joists and will have us create a box of sorts that will be about 12-14" wide and about 12" down from our 10' ceilings. If we do a chimney hood this box will fit right over the chimney and be trimmed out kind of like this except I'm thinking (from the way they were talking) that my box will end up larger than this trim out is here...

I'm headed to a third cabinetry place Tuesday to see what we can do as far as the cost of the cabinetry and where they come in vs. my current frontrunner, especially now that I have this additional item thrown in.
On to better things. It's rained off and on all week. I didn't get to go by the house today because work went long and kids had things in the evening. But this was yesterday:
And yesterday it was back to the lighting place where I stewed over more fixtures.
I've already changed some thoughts on some of my previous selections. But at least now I know what types of fixtures are going where. I can take some time on my specific choices now.
I'm anxious to see if our stairs are up! The boys got to go upstairs shortly after the second story was framed because they arrived a few minutes before we got to the house while the framers were still there with the super long ladders. We missed them! The girls have yet to see the upstairs. It's killing Brooke to not get to see her room!
