The cabinets for the house are from Northwood Cabinets out of Woodland, Washington. They're being delivered and installed Thursday and Friday, October 28 - 29, 2010.

Our cabinets are made from rustic beech, and are stained a russet color. Most go in the main floor kitchen. There are also cabinets in the 3 1/2 bathrooms, the downstairs kitchenette, and the utility room. Cabinets are an important feature of a new home and a major expense.
