Kitchen Completed


Over Memorial Weekend, our two oldest sons installed the new kitchen faucet and antique Swedish table to complete the kitchen at Old Farm. I would love to have a cool stainless steel refrigerator here someday, but this is a summer house and we will have to wait for great working appliances to need replacements.


Here is a closer look. The pot rack was bought by the previous owner in Paris and we only had to clean it.


A deeper view. All of the lights were wired already except for the table light which Bill installed.


Table view. This table has two full length drop leaves so that it can be used smaller or stored aside.


 And our main source of heat! This Norwegian Jotul F3 CB wood burning stove is said to be the world's best value for your heating dollar and the best selling stove in North America. It easily heats our entire first floor which includes the living room, bathroom and master suite. The glass door and bottom removable ash tray make it especially nice for us at Old Farm.

This is our second Jotul F3 CB we found on craigslist. The first was picked up on the way to our winter house closing, installed the same day and later repaired with some newer parts. Recently I found a nearly new one for half the original price about two hours away and well worth the efforts to trade up.

The Before...
