Kelly and I designed and built the open-shelved cabinets and the island, and my cousin's husband, a granite and marble fabricator, made the Carrara countertops. I found the sink, range, and restaurant hood on eBay. We kept the electrical exposed; it was easier and cheaper than running it through the beams, and we like the industrial look of it. For the pantry, I repurposed a sliding barn door.
Shown: The apron-front porcelain sink maintains the feel of a farmhouse kitchen, though the room's all-white palette and exposed framing also give it a modern aesthetic. A bridge faucet sourced from a surgical supply store has a hose that stretches to the floor for easy filling of a mop bucket.
