THE BACK STAIRCASE WAS CUTE AND ORIGINAL, BUT BUILT AT A TIME WHEN “WHERE TO PUT THE FRIDGE” WASN’T A PRESSING QUESTION.

The room was gutted. Five layers of flooring ripped out. Newspaper from 1929 was found in between pine floorboards as insulation. Wood cookstove removed and Deity sink put in it’s place. Back staircase ripped out to make room for fridge. Dish sink put where fridge used to be. Jotul stove placed in alcove made when doorway to cellar boarded up (maybe that was done during the 1929 remodel).

Cabinet above big sink for showing off jam.
Long counter stretch was where sink originally was. Also, we discovered the original chimney in on the green wall, near the corner.
Back door now goes to the newly built breezeway, instead of the back porch.
Was a boarded up doorway, now a hearth.
So we couldn’t afford stacked cabinets. We could afford a nod to stocked cabinets.
Integrated drainboards are good.
Now I don’t have to go outside to do the laundry!!
