They also finished the kitchen walls. The enclosing of the pocket door between the kitchen and entry (center of pic) provides the first feeling for the real size and shape of the kitchen. The front wall (at the extreme right) will be covered when they use up the drywall stacked in front of it. The big opening in the wall (thru which you see the stairs) will be filled in by the cabinet guy in order to accomodate 2 appliance recesses.
