Finally! I’m cutting the sides for the drawers now, and the whole house smells like blocks. I love maple. Here’s the latest, with what I think is a pretty complete kitchen design. The goofy sink-in-front of window setup was stolen straight out of Susan Susankas’s “not so big” house series. I don’t know if that detail will last, but the sink will remain. Otherwise, the kitchen is - I think - done. I’ve modeled a commercial stove, which have different (larger) dimensions than standard stoves. They go for very little, used. Sometimes free, sometimes $200. I don’t mind a 15 year old stove. Oh, and the countertop is something I’ll do myself, using a variant of this method. I may do some end treatment for the peninsula, but otherwise I think this is basically it. I hope.
Since the shop is JAMMED because of the plywood and maple delivery that I got last week, I needed to clear out space. This is a little open-backed hut that I made to hold two trash cans. It turned out better than I expected .It’s made from old Sun Microsystems pallets, cedar fencing, and 2 hinge sets. Not bad! I need to add a little vanity board on the bottom, ’cause you can see the shims I used to level it. I built the entire thing in the shop (2 days!) and then kinda walked it up the driveway, and voila! When it weathers in, it should match the shingled house nicely.
