The Kitchen

BEFORE PHOTOS:


THAT’S OUR REALTOR, JAY WHISTLER. HE IS CONTEMPLATING PUTTING ON HIS BUSINESS CARD, “BUILDING THE HARE KRISHNA COMMUNITY, ONE FAMILY AT A TIME.”

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


THE FAUX COBBLESTONE FLOOR HID DIRT WELL…UNTIL YOU LOOKED AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR FEET!

The last bead of silicone has been applied and the kitchen is finally done. Well, except for the…oh never mind! Here are the pictures and a list of sources.

pine cabinets: Ram Wood Cabinetry

cabinet hardware: Horton Brasses

cobra soapstone countertops and custom 40″ sink: M. Texeira Soapstone

character oak floor, 3,4,5″ widths & Streetshoe water emolsion finish: Heister House Millworks

land of liberty paint (green): Benjamin Moore

alabaster paint: Sherwin Williams

Boston Harbor jelly jar lights: Hechinger’s

ceiling fan and undercabinet lighting: Lowe’s

24″ fireclay Porcher farm sink: Ira Wood and Son’s

Jotul Allagash gas stove: Creekside Hearth

real brick veneer tile: Inglenook Tile

3 x 6 carerra marble tile: Banta Tile and Marble

laundry room/breezeway and porch floor tile: Lowe’s

wall mounted satin nickel faucets: Plumbingsource-store (ebay store)

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!!

    This is GORGEOUS…. although I have always been partial to back stairs that go up from a kitchen! What did you do with the old stove in picture #1?? Someday I'm going to have a stove like that…
    Seriously, this is beautiful. I can't even imagine the amount of work that went into it even after reading about it.

    And be flattered; I'm not on the Babas' list at all.

  4. 7 blade ceiling fans have much better performance compared to those three bladed fans ‘:.
