I have never had an impressive kitchen so wasn’t too disappointed with the existing one.
The lino was evicted the day after we moved in, revealing Tasmanian oak floorboards. The cupboard space was adequate and with the island we brought with us, the kitchen was functional.
I then saw the cooker of my dreams in a catalogue, an offer too good to refuse. And so, it began. We had to relocate the electric water heater from the corner and solved that problem with solar hot water.
The huge cabinet only just fit through the door but determination won out.
We tried not to let the demolition get in the way of cocktail hour.
We removed the old door and window next to it to create a wall and fitted a new door
then returned to the task of demolition.
Next, we were ready for the professionals, who very quickly created a masterpiece.
The Belling Range takes pride of place.
Our kitchen, and home, is now complete.
