Holy Cow...

the kitchen

Somehow we went from a nice space to an actual kitchen today. I finished painting the wall behind where the stove will go, and with K's help installed the range hood. Hooking up the electrical for it was a snap.

Then I cleared a path from the refrigerator in the living room into the kitchen, and again with K's help moved the refrigerator into its slot. A bit of cleaning of the stove and lifting it onto some sliders, and K helped me slide that into place. I hooked up the gas, checked for leaks, et voilĂ !

Of course there's plenty left to do, like trim and flooring, not to mention the dining room, but today was a good day, ending with a fully functional kitchen.

crushed by the stove?

Heh - I've gathered you here tonight because I know who killed Mr. Anderson.

(Pause to glance meaningfully at each person in the room....)

It was the wife, in the kitchen, with the two-ton Wedgewood stove!

It could have been the cat, in the kitchen, with the gas line. Her motive? Cantaloupe.

I have a stove similar to yours. It looks great in your kitchen!!!! Sara

@Sara: Thanks! I like how the dark green wall highlights the stove -- that was the plan, at least :-)

That stove is to die for (though I'm glad you weren't really crushed by it). I have the original gas stove in my basement (hooked up and working!), but I'm debating moving it back upstairs to the kitchen. It's about half the size of yours, and I don't know how practical it would be. But oh, the authenticity! Decisions, decisions...
