Another Mini-Kitchen

We’re rehabbing an over-garage apartment at work.

We'll be removing the full-size refrigerator.

One of the first considerations was what to do with the kitchen.

The one-piece kitchen has a sink, stovetop, and refrigerator under.

In my 25-year tenure we’ve changed the built-in kitchen twice. The problem with these all-in-ones is that repairs are difficult if one of the parts goes bad.

Out contractor used our suggestions to design a slightly larger kitchen.

So we’re pulling out the old kitchen and replacing it with individual components.

The first step in the kitchen is to prime the dark paneling to get it ready for "Dove White" paint.

We’re still in the planning stage.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
