Kitchen remodel is done.

After 10 years of planning, procrastination, and life in general, here is the promised kitchen. Cooking is our main at-home activity. We wanted the space, features, energy efficency, and light that this change provides. One surprising, theistic feature of the gas stove - it has a "sabbath function". Who knows what that is.

Absolutely beautiful, Daniel. A dream kitchen for sure!  I hope you enjoy many years of retired bliss cooking up your garden-to-table gastronomic wonders there!

A kitchen to dream for! The refrigerator has counter space and a water supply, the stove has a good vent and counter space to put hot dishes, a second sink --- Oh! that is a great idea, an island for working and sharing tasks, a beautiful counter top in a refreshing color, and two fine gentlemen-chefs to put it to good use. I hope there are stools for the peninsula to facilitate chatter while the cutting and chopping takes place. 

I want everyone in my kitchen while I am cooking; many people want to cook alone. This looks like a community-friendly kitchen.

That is one gorgeous kitchen, and now I want one. That one, I think.

That's great! You get good deals at those yard sales and estate sales.

An unseen "feature" is that I've been going to estate sales and yard sales to find cooking equipment.  Now we use a set of '60s pyrex mixing bowls, stainless steel pots and pans, stainless measuring equipment - all for almost nothing money-wise.  It makes me feel a little like I'm in my parents' kitchen (which was about 1/4 as big as this kitchen, and grimy), and makes the 'comfort food' a comfort to make.  Strange but true.  My rolling pin is a birds-eye maple rolling pin from my grandmother, probably 30 years older than I am.  Some of the kitchen towels are also from the 60s or 70s - cotton lasts a long time.

Fantastic!

 

So -- this is the kitchen where all those lovely dishes are made!

Thank you!

 

Anne thanks for the info.  So happy that my stove is friendly to a group of people who would likely have nothing to do with me.

Wow - just beautiful!  Those 10 years of planning really paid off.

wow!  So shiny.  Very nice job. 

btw: In recent years, however, well-intentioned appliance makers have been installing safety features that automatically shut off ovens after 12 hours. That meant a unit turned on at dusk Friday would be cold before lunch on Saturday. When companies learned this was complicating dinner preparation for some Jews, they supplied an optional override. Thus, a rudimentary "Sabbath mode" was born. [Wired]
