Welcome to part two of my Carolina mountain home series. I have moved inside these beautiful homes to show you several kitchens and a couple of dining rooms. Click here to see part one of this series.
These homes were built by my son-in-law, Ray Foral, in The Cliff’s Communities in the Carolina mountains between Greenville, SC and Asheville, NC. His company is Ridgeline Construction Group, Inc. 201 E. North Street, Ste. 203 Greenville, SC 29601. 864 313-0638
^ I do like the lighter cabinets with the darker island in this particular kitchen. Though not decorated, I like the open shelf at the end of the island. The diamond tile for the backsplash looks nice. Without seeing the space, I may have wanted pendants or a chandelier over the island. Looking at the top of the photo to the right is a hallway with a door that leads to the garage. As you walk in from the garage, there is a mud room and then a laundry room. On the other side of the hallway is a small office. I like the timber in the ceiling in the hallway.
^The floors, the ceiling, the island , the cabinets, the backsplash shelf under the vent hood, the backsplash, the chandelier over the island are just a few of the details that stand out as I look at this beautiful kitchen.
^Isn’t the back splash under the vent hood a great look. Wouldn’t you like to be standing in front of THAT window washing dishes on a snowy day? Thumbs up for the high ceilings.
^The bar stools speak to me! I think they look great though not sure how comfortable they are. Nice wide ovens which are most likely an oven/microwave combination. Again, I might like pendants or a chandelier over the island.
^Although I do like open spaces between the top of the upper cabinet and the ceilings, in this case the space is a bit tight. I probably would have taken the cabinets all the way to the ceiling. I think this is a handsome vent hood.
^Nice timbers in the ceiling. Looks like the Nano doors to the porch which are on tracks and they stack as you open them to the side. They allow you to bring the outside in. Though definitely a lovely design element, from a functional standpoint I am not a fan of fireplaces in a dining room. The people seated on the side of the table by the fireplace get scorched.
^Though this photo does not give justice to the beautiful timbers in the vaulted ceiling in the living room, trust me they are spectacular. They are generous in size and give the feeling of strength and stability. When fully open, the Nano doors to the decks bring the outside in, I like the fact when hosting a party the guest can flow out to the deck from the living room doors and back in through the dining room doors. I like the window located above the Nano doors which brings in more sunlight.

PS My surgery is at noon on tomorrow. Hopefully, it goes well and this is the end of these ear issues. I will be a bit out of it for a few days due to pain meds but will try to get another mountain series post out soon.
