Early remodel at the new house

We decided we were confident enough in the sale of the Belgrade Lakes house going through that it was time to bring the rest of our furnishing home as we'd left some things there to give it a little staging.  I really wasn't sure where the little brown leather sofa was going to go though I had been contemplating putting it in front of the fireplace in what we were currently using as a dining area.  I really liked having the table there as we'd be able to enjoy the fireplace in the winter and have been able to get a nice view of the deck where we could observe the birds and critters. But I also liked the idea of a comfortable seating area near the fireplace.   

Plus we had this big kitchen area where we'd been planning to have an island built, much like the one we had at the lakehouse.  However, the table would fit in there, save us the money on the island, and allow us to make a seating area in front of the fireplace.

So that's what we did with just a little furniture moving.

The countertops are a little cluttered. I'd like to figure out a better placement for the microwave. I've got an idea that I need to think out.

But I think this seating area will be very comfy once we get the fireplace converted to propane and can enjoy a nice fire with the flip of a switch.

We definitely need to check in with Tim about building us a pottery shelf where this big blank wall is.  Plus, without an island, we really need the extra storage space.

Here's the new pottery shelf!
