Two more pics after he cleaned up-- there was a strawberry top on the floor in front of the trash that I didn't notice 'til later.mkitflr+trashcan.jpg mkitnewflrdone11.jpg

It's looking real nice. I'm not too happy about that wire (i think it's a wire) behind the range. Couldn't figure out how to hide behind the wall? Actually, what are you doing to protect the wall behind that thing?

Maybe you just added a cord to plug in the range hood to a socket behind the oven?

If so, at least cover it with a surface raceway.

Yeah, my friend added a plug behind the range hood. The walls are something similar to shiplap underneath the paneling & he didn't want to try cutting in to it to add a socket behind it. We are discussing creating some sort of backsplash, but he has a lot of other things to fix before he gets to that. Eventually I think that cord will be hidden. The walls will get a different color & I've discussed putting something behind the stove a little underneath to prevent stuff from falling off the back behind it.
I didn't get a pic yet, but he got a new fridge-- a larger one with the freezer as a drawer on the bottom. Its taller than the one in the picture.
Looking at the space in the kitchen, in retrospect I wish he'd put the stove perpendicular to the sink & counter and gone around the corner a bit to have more prep area. There was enough room to do it but it would have been cramped. Too late now though.

I understand that things have to have priorities and sometimes you can't do it all at once, but please ask you friend to be sure that there is no hazards around the stove. Paint isn't a good fire retardant and wires can melt

Tile is out of the question, but what would make a good backsplash? I'll talk to him about getting something to protect the wire for the range hood. I need to upload the new pics of the new fridge he got but my phone needs to charge.
