The only thing I've really done is to replace the electric glass top stove with a nice antique gas stove (I prefer to cook with gas). I purchased it from somebody local who was going to put it into their home, but thought it wouldn't be safe with kids around. I refinished all the porcelain parts (grilles, drip pans) and had the griddle coated with teflon (better cooking surface than the original chrome)

We have discussed remodeling the kitchen, but are waiting until all other projects are done (bath, paint, stairs, etc.). Then we can think about the kitchen...the stove stays

Here are some current pictures. The first is just after moving in with the old stove (me with the ladies) The second shows the work I had to do to get the new 40" stove in the space. I had to modify the drawers and cabinets to get it in. The last is of the new stove in place. '47 O'Keefe.
Very nice job retrofitting the great looking new stove.

Thanks! The first shots were taken when we were looking at the house for the first time...so the red/white/blue theme wasn't our idea!

Its funny how we take something on, find out we are way over our heads, and them come through with flying colors and a client with big smiles on there face. Gota love this job.

The red white and blue can be nice sometimes. To each is own as they say.

Thanks, Daryl. I had been looking for an old stove, and that one just caught my eye. It cooks like a champ! And when company's coming over, I just do this...clean as a whistle

Default Antiques....

Some folks collect cars....some get stoves. Very nice conversation piece too.
You should belong to a club.....
I like the old wood fired stoves myself, I just have to find a good deal.

I'm a little curious about that stove. Can not remember ever seeing one quite like that.
I see 6 knobs and a large one and 2 big doors and 2 smaller ones..Could you tell us a little about this stove???

Default Custom cabinets for a log home.

Our cabinets were installed yesterday. The contractor will return today to install the doors for the upper cabinet by the window. They were damaged during delivery. They also will add a finish panel to the end of the upper cabinets. And yes, they were designed and built for a log home which is why the doors are framed with 1/2 log look.

Our kitchen cabinets.

Utility room cabinets include pantry.

Bathroom linen cabinet with clothes hamper

Bathroom vanity
