The kitchen is the room I feel most confortable being in, and where I spend most of my time. That's why I have two of them.

I have the tiniest of tiny kitchens and it's kind of a bummer. BUT... it's really easy to keep clean! I don't have enough counterspace or storage, everything else I can deal with.

I quit looking for a house, I just want a kitchen with a bedroom and bath attached.

My kitchen is a mess. As said before, I had a restaruant in my house since the early '90's. We closed a couple of years ago and I have yet to renovate. The house is 111 years old. The whole thing needs to be gutted. It is still very functional and definately the centre of activity. The entrance we use the most is into this room, so it is a catch-all room with boots, jackets, keys, schoolbooks, shopping, musical intruments etc... Many meals have left this kitchen over the years. I can't wait to muster up the energy, and money, to start demolition...

I like your kitchen. It looks very functional. Everything within easy reach.
I also ran a restaurant out of my house in Cody, Wyoming, for 12 years.
Welcome to the forum.

I would be in heaven in that kitchen. Look at all that space!

Yeah, I'm going to miss it. It is an oldy. I've put a new comprssor and interior fan in it. But, it is loud, expensive to run, and loftovers can get lost in there for weeks. I've pulled a few furry science projects out of there over the years. It is great for stocking cases of beverages, and other bulk items that we pick up on special. Right now I have 6 chickens in there I need to get portioned and shrink wrapped for the freezer. But, not to worry, the next shelf down is a 24 pack of micro brewed Pilsner that will keep me in good spirits while I hack away....
