Schumacher Cross Creek Kitchen – Final
So, we are going with the Schumacher Cross Creek. We’ve made modifications, but not to the kitchen.
The cabinets might not be what I would have chosen, but for the difference in price, I will learn to love them.
The island is standard at counter height. We are having it raised to bar height, 18″ deep across from the sink. It makes the kitchen just a little less on display from the front door.
It includes three recessed lights, in our choice of location.
I plan to move the pendants I already have to over the bar. (Most people who will want to buy the log cabin will probably not want crystal pendants and a crystal chandelier in the dining room.)
This has the ideal work triangle.
And look at all the storage!
Above are the cabinets that are in the island. Below are the cabinets for the walls.
The dishwasher is closest to the dining room.
The ceiling is 9′, so the cabinets don’t go all the way to the ceiling.
The cabinets are maple with recessed square panel doors. We selected Spring Valley Maple Square in Sable finish. They are made by Merillat. The height is staggered. They are finished with 2-1/4″ crown molding. The bottom cabinets have one middle shelf slide out tray. They have concealed hinges. The interiors are vinyl coated. We added the full extension under-mount guide system with integrated Soft Action closing mechanism on dovetail drawer cores. They come with a 25 year warranty.
We chose Corian countertops in cobalt blue.
This is the flooring.
It has a repeat of 36″ length, 36″ width. I hope that isn’t too close. It’s hard to tell from the sample.

I am providing my own cabinet hardware. I got a credit for that.
We weren’t as done as we thought:
