This kitchen isn't a bad size for an older kitchen 12'x17'. Due to the 4 doors, two wells or trap doors in the floor, limited access to the underside of the floor and the location of the windows, this was the best I could come up with. I recycled the window on the left and reused it in my Parlor, that's an Anderson double hung, circa 1930.
This before picture made the kitchen look GOOD!!
No headers or sill plate for the window. I took out the cellulose insulation and replaced it with fiberglass.
Granite, stone and stainless, permenant or good for quite some time anyway. I tried to please the ex and let her choose the colors, black an white is okay but I'd like to have had more color...
If I had restored this kitchen it would have had a pot belly stove and a picture pump over the well so as long as I was doing it I said I may as well update it!
