Kitchen

Post by PietFrancke »

We have put many hours into this home, Kitchen's turn! New fixtures and paint and appliances. New countertops and sink (oh, that pink formica or whatever it was, was awful!). Big picture covers the circuit breaker box. Working on the tile. I cut the walnut in WV and brought them here and flattened them. Gave them straight edges with a track saw and glued them together for the breakfast nook - that project was dicey, but I am liking it so far. The mortar you see for the tiles didn't work very well - a couple of pieces came loose, but a different type of mortar (the kind you mix yourself) is working very well. And a couple of shots from the back deck (out the door on the right)…

Looking great! And you are doing it yourself! The sunset is breathtakingly beautiful.

Love the kitchen. Good idea having the stove in the island. A kitchen needs to be comfortable. I love both mine, the one here that we redid about 6 or 7 years ago, and the country kitchen which was last modernized in 1920 but is quite functional.

Hi Min, Lots of hard work, we did it all but for the countertop.. I think a kitchen is likely the heart of a home - and while a stove is important, the center of the kitchen is the kitchen sink!! A place I know you love the most!!! LOL

Great sunset....still a ways to go but close. never was an electrician but I'm curious if there is a reason the breakfast nook wall plug is upside down (ground on top) which is how I thought they all ought to be anyway

OMG - never noticed that! Thank you Frank, I am sure there is no good reason at all.

from the kitchen window, you can see our garage. upstairs it has a large room with windows at all four sides, I'm turning it into my workshop and plan to have my CNC machine up there in a month or so.

Lots of work in front of me yet, the garage and two sides of the house exterior still need to be painted.

The prior owner left Matilda behind. Early on, I touched her shoulder intending to move her from the window, but she turned and looked at me, and I haven't touched her since. So far no one has messed with my stuff! Shirl won't go up there either, but she is ok with Matilda, it's the black snakes that she doesn't like!

I like Matilda, who looks cheerful and upbeat. I'm less fond of the black snake, but better him than my copperheads, who are working up to a strong season it seems.
