Cute place, PF. That kitchen must be ginormous! Our house was 1806 before we added the sunroom, I have a fairly large kitchen, and our house has three bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths! If I ever could build a house and not worry about resale, I would have had a huge kitchen in the middle, with little sleeping and bathroom "pods" along the back and side walls, and two "quiet rooms" for reading or watching TV either side of the entry.
Looking forward to your next update on your new digs. Hope you and Shrek aren't sleeping in the car at all - I bet your car doesn't have indoor plumbing.
