So very nice!
There are two sinks? IF not a sink, what is in the foreground to the lest of the stove


Yes, main sink and a prep sink in the island.


...and what an awesome stove it is!!!!!


I've been dealing with crap appliances ever since I got out of the restaurant biz so my gift to myself was that thing.

Very nice job, AM!

Thank you for leaving the cool-ass traditional stove in the mix. It's such an AWESOME piece!

Our 2nd phase of kitchen cabinets came in last week. I am acclimating them now, then I'll set them. I do have some pics which I will post. This phase is the "island". We will have a 6x8 island with full cabinets underneath, and a granite top. I'm not the biggest fan of granite and wanted to go with something else initially (we have granite now which we're tearing out), but the character of the granite won out in the end.

Phase 3 will be the stove and sink counter, and we're doing the 60" stove with the double ovens. I think it will be nice.

Great pics and thanks for posting!

Enjoy the new space!!! And cook some good food, would ya!!

I thought long and hard about doing the prep sink in the island, but ultimately opted not to. Just a flat surface, all 6x8 of it. It wasn't really because of the difficulty of doing it (although I'd have had to move the main ductwork in the house to do it), but really more the fact that sinks tend to capture other things around them. Ultimately we decided just to go with a completely flat surface. Maybe it's in my head, but after my years of bar tending in college an uninterrupted surface just seems easier to clean to me.

Gorgeous, still think you should have hired me


I made a mean batch of fried green tomatoes tonight for dinner. That stove would have been all the more fun to cook them on!

I'm glad to see you are moving right along and the tile is a great feature!

I ended up going with quartz as it is maintenance free and very durable. Plus the color consistency was great.

Here's a couple more. With the new pot filler:



And what I think is some fancy greeting in Italian:

Wow! That came out spectacular!

Well done!

Love the tin ceiling, that's a nice touch. Do you get much echo off of it?

And...I still love, love, LOVE that old stove!! Is it vented to the outside?

Not much at all, there are enough cabinets to absorb the sound.

The stove isn't vented but I can easily hook it up again, I just don't feel like burning coal.

Couldn't you burn wood in it too?

It was designed for anthracite coal which was the primary source of fuel from the mid-1800's to about the 1930's/40's in this area.

Interesting, I wonder what the differences are?

Needless to say, I'm pretty fascinated with that stove.

In any case, FANTASTIC job on everything!

Oh HELL NO!! I think this project is going to go on for a couple centuries yet!

I'll try to take some pics today of the progress to date.

Got the built in full wall hutch done. Got the island in. Got the electrical all done. Now I've got to start working on the sink and stove area.

I'm procrastinating. Got two jobs already, and every now and then I like a break from my 3rd!

Beautiful! A kitchen fit for a great chef.

And it's so clean. Everything is so shiny and gleaming. My kitchen is never as clean as I would like it to be.

eta: I adore the windows and the light in there. I know it's different throughout the morning and afternoon. What a treat. I love the light.

In all fairness, it's different when you are having it done, and do it yourself.

I love my little projects around the house and garden, but speedy is not one of my finer qualities. But that's okay.
I like taking my time with most things. Something I want NOW, I have done.

The trick is to keep cleaning it, long hours in the restaurant biz teaches you to constantly clean up after yourself so it should stay all nice and shiny.

We do get some good natural light, I decided not to put up curtains as I like the sunlight and we have a hedgerow on that side of the property anyway.

Place looks great and who's that in the window? House warming guest?
